    Why are the people insanely skinny or insanely fat? But when the normal people look scarier than the Addams Family then there is definitely something wrong. Netflix shows look better than this FEATURE FILM. Obviously made to make a quick buck through box office earnings and advertising.

    I really wanted to like the animation. The character design is an obvious copy of the original comic design which I appreciate but it just doesn't translate well to animation. This would of been much better as a stop motion film. The story plot has non of the charm of the original series. The way Morticia and Gomez react to Wednesday's behavior is not in line with their character. The original characters would of been shocked yes, but a big part of their character is there unwavering love and support of their children. As a matter of fact this plot point has already been done for them, this plot point was brought up in season 1 of the original show when Pugsley joins the boy scouts and starts dressing and acting in a manner distinctly different from the typical Addams manner. The way this plot point was handled was done far better in the show then in this movie. This can be said for many parts of the main plot as well. This conflict between the Addams family and there neighbors/surrounding community was a ongoing plot device in the original show and was done so much better. The show was charming and funny but it still portrayed a family I along with many people I know would of love to have been a part of. That's what made the show great; where as a lot of the family's on tv during the time held a lot of internal conflict especially in concerns with the main couples, this show portrayed two parents who were still madly in love raising a family that loved and supported each other no matter what. This movie isn't completely unwatchable but if your looking for a truly charming and entertaining show I would suggest simply watching the original series. Hell even the live action movies were better then this.

    The Addams Family (2019) is a fun time with the Addams Family! The movie was alright. The weird thing was that the civilians look weirder than the Addams. There is a lot of different plots in the movie and that seems to be the biggest problem with this movie. The realtor lady was really weird with her cameras watching everyone. Uncle Fester (Nick Kroll) was my favorite character. The movie ends with the original theme song but with the new character designs. I really liked that part of the movie. The movie had its moments.

    A creepy and kooky take on everyone's favorite family who are the same.

    It didn't capture the essence of the characters Charles Addams created. It's generic and stupid, embarrassingly so. (First and only viewing - 11/18/2020)

    The third time the Addams Family is brought to the big screen, and the first one to be animated, is a little better than I expected it to be. The movie is beautifully animated and the voice cast does a very good job. Despite that the movie does have its problems. One is the movie's rather formulaic plot line and moral message of acceptance and tolerance. Those are all well and good of course, but how many times have we seen stories of people judging a book by its cover and then later realize the error of their ways. Despite this flaw the movie is very entertaining and ends with a very well done tribute to the popular 1964 television series. While "The Addams Family" is far from perfect, it does have its strong points and is in my opinion north seeing.

    I never care what others think of a movie- If I like it, I like it. And, I did enjoy this one - a nice change from what's happening all about us and the animated characters were delightful. As usual, things turned out just fine, like we always know they will, after all the turmoil.
