This origin casts the Addams family as an immigrant story, and the film leans so hard into the theme of accepting those different from us and valuing diversity over conformity,

One of those properties that works no matter the format whether a series movie or its latest iteration, a stop-motion animated movie, that's worthy of two snaps up.

...The film's simplistic and episodic plot put a major dampener on what could have been a welcome breath of fresh air for family animation.

While The Addams Family isn't super amazing, it's a good and fun film for this Halloween season.

Despite the problems, I found The Addams Family to be refreshing.

It has monsters doing/saying weird things and humans acting like huge jerks but when that's all you've got for 87 minutes, the novelty quickly wears thin.

The animation is sharp, right down to Lurch's fingernails. The music is well-placed. The famous theme song pops up now and then but is not overdone.
December 19, 2019
All the casting here, like the film itself, feels too marketing driven, and the latter is obviously an excuse for a bad hip-hop remix of the classic TV show theme song.

This 2019 CGI remake misses the mark in the most crucial element of what has sustained The Addams Family all this time - its offbeat, macabre vibe. If you don't get that, you're really not going to get any of it.

...it's sweet anyway, and like it or not, a sequel is a spookily sure thing.

Now the mirthfully macabre clan known as the Addams Family - an iconic creation of legendary New Yorker cartoonist Charles Addams - have been fed into Hollywood's cartoon woodchipper.

There's plenty of fun to be had with this snappy animated retread... there are enough confrontations and spook-based visual gags to make it an enjoyable, disposable jaunt with a timely and positive message about how best to shut down a bully.

It's tedious but, worse, it's wasteful. The wealth of talent that has gone into its making has been frittered away in a vain attempt to pump new heart into a creation that ran out of puff long ago.

Throw in a fantastic vocal cast... and the result is a terrific way to temporarily escape festive season madness.
December 2, 2019
This version of The Addams Family is not nearly ooky or spooky enough.
December 2, 2019
Can't help but feel like a wasted opportunity to truly embrace the source material's dark yet likeable temperament.

This isn't a film only for children or old-school fans. There's something here for everyone. It's a clever, funny movie with a message about family, even the quirky ones who we want to belittle or make fun of.

An average production. [Full Review in Spanish]

It underestimates its viewers, losing the nostalgic halo that could have worked as a impeller of empathy towards the story. [Full Review in Spanish]

The message about accepting people as they are... is certainly welcome. But it's far too bland for a movie about a clan that communes with dead relatives... The Addams Family franchise will no doubt survive a mediocre entry.
