...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.

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.
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.
December 18, 2019
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.
December 5, 2019
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.
December 4, 2019
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.
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.

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]
November 8, 2019
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.
November 8, 2019
Don't expect any of the wit or charm of the 1960s TV show or Barry Sonnenfeld's big-screen adaptations. Monstrous. But not in kooky, spooky way.
November 7, 2019
A film made in autopilot mode, with just few good moments. [Full review in Spanish]
November 6, 2019
This bland film needed more wit and macabre. Watch it just to reacquaint yourself with the beloved characters you've grown up watching. Otherwise, avoid.
November 5, 2019
Mixed animation styles and derivative storytelling combined with the feather-light tone and obvious messaging make this feel less like an Addams Family film and more like the Munsters.​
October 31, 2019
Everything drifts to an action plot that has little to do with the gothic eccentricities of the family. And the edifying messages for children appear. [Full review in Spanish]
October 30, 2019
There are some sly, funny touches, but the storyline is thin and forgettable, and the voice cast merely sound like their predecessors.
October 30, 2019
While it may not be either scary or particularly funny, The Addams Family is worth a watch for its voice cast, but disappointment is imminent.
October 28, 2019
Jokes fall horribly flat and the story proves decidedly thin...
October 28, 2019
The laughs are a bit dreary too, with little beyond the family's flipped tastes and macabre worldview. Pink and fluffy, they recoil. Sharp and nasty, they rejoice. Thirty years suddenly seems like a lifetime ago.
