The best parts of this film were the shortest. More Wednesday and Pugsley; less Uncle Fester, plz.

There is little real value in this return of the Addams family.

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

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.

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.

Bland, rote and not at all ooky enough.

A thinner, airier reunion.

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.

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

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

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.
