A few sparkling performances and funny moments save this from being a complete waste of time, but it's not a promising way to start the Thanksgiving/Christmas movie season.

Bland, rote and not at all ooky enough.

Bad move, Barry. You should have quit while you were ahead.

A thinner, airier reunion.

Like the first of the Addams chronicles, this is an essentially lazy movie, too often settling for easy gags and special effects that don't come to any really funny point.

If you haven't yet seen the first film, rent that instead, or, better yet, go pick up a volume of the original Addams cartoons.

Cheers to Christina Ricci, but I hope her contract doesn't demand another sequel. She deserves better.

Though this sequel probably has more creative energy than its predecessor, the constant stream of one-liners and sight gags is very much hit or miss.

Somehow, the new production fails to sustain the creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky and altogether ooky visual sweep that held the first film together.

Surprise, surprise -- Addams Family Values is more wicked, more warped and more tightly wound than The Addams Family. It's a dark comedy on the edge, way on the edge, and perhaps twice as funny as the original.

A dark comedy teens will love.

Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston are given a lot of one-liners and payoff gags, of course, but what's funny is the stuff that comes in between -- the real affection with which they embrace each other, and the way they delight in their unspeakable lifestyle.

This delightful follow-up to The Addams Family is blessed with an even blacker vein of humour than the original.

The second Addams flick is actually funny, too. And obviously that goes a long way.

When the film tries to advance a plot it loses most of its energy and humor, and tells a rather weak story. It is only when the story-telling comes to a full halt for the sake of a joke that the film is really funny.
