The Addams Family is back on the big screen in the first animated comedy about the kookiest family on the block.
They’re creepy and they’re kooky – and the altogether ooky Addams Family are back in full-feature computer-animated form. Gomez and Morticia decide it is time for a move – to New Jersey. However, they quickly find themselves as odds with the inhabitants of their new town who don’t take easily to their quirky brand of family life. Expect all the favourites of the wider family to pop up – including a star turn from Snoop Dogg as the voice of Cousin Itt. Click click.
(2019 UK / Canada / USA 87 mins)
The best gags in this new version update classic jokes: the furious villagers are now controlled via social media fake news, while Wednesday appears identically wan in every one of her friend’s Instagram filters. The family predilection for using dangerous weapons survives intact, even if the darkly Gothic spirit of the Barry Sonnenfeld films is largely missing … with a decent voice cast and a style that pays homage to the original drawings, The Addams Family passes muster as a disconcertingly cheerful, family-friendly romp. Eddie Harrison, The List
