Formulaic and family-friendly, yet frighteningly forgettable - it's aimed at 8 to 12 year-olds.

They're creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky, and all together ooky. They're not bland, toothless, cuddly or conformist. Yet as reimagined for this new animated effort, they're about as edgy as Strawberry Shortcake or The Care Bears.

Its celebration of misunderstood outsiderdom is too generic to amount to much more than a bargain-basement 'Despicable Me'.

"The Addams Family" has been done to death. Enough already, give it a rest.

It's nice to have the Addams back in our lives, but it would have been nice if they could have been a little more "ookie."

The film would have done well to keep things simple, and leave the characters room to breathe.

Think of this as entry-level Addams, and that's also its limitation. Directors Vernon and Tiernan don't add anything new, and their decision to stick to generic contemporary CG animation is a lost opportunity for something more innovative.

... seeing the caricatures of Charles Addams brought to life in all their beautiful nonconformity is a wonderful nightmare come true, even if slightly hamstrung for less-gothic audiences.

Even though The Addams Family suffers with its villain and gets bogged down with pointless scenes, it makes up for it with great humor, funny characters, and a great moral.

The Addams Family makes a decent return and occasionally elicits laughter.

The Addams Family essentially does what it sets out to, namely provide offbeat fun and introduce the clan to a new generation.

All the right stuff is there, you can pretty much find everything you're looking for, but the presentation just kind of seems like it's thrown together to make a profit.

Despite its infantilized treatment of the family it still provides enough creative set-pieces and heart-warming character moments to please both fans and newcomers.

The Addams Family makes for a fun-ish Halloween film that is safe for most kids to watch; I just wish the movie had as much personality as the theme song did.

There's barely a nod to character development or relationships. Instead, we're dragged from one unconnected scene to the next. In addition to all of this, the animation is lackluster and flat.

This latest iteration of the classic family leaves quite a bit to be desired, and even a really solid voice-cast can't quite overcome the perfunctory nature of this revival.

The gags in this film are less sardonic than those found in the original children's TV series way back in the 1960s.

With sledgehammer subtlety, it transforms the antics of the titular clan into a tract for political correctness.
