Confidence tricksters zero in on an eccentric clan they consider an easy mark, only to find the Addamses more resilient than expected, in a spooky comic adventure for all the family
Has Hollywood run out of ideas? Is resurrecting a long dead TV show a sure sign of creative bankruptcy? Not when the results are as delightful as The Addams Family, an inventive adaptation that’s actually loads funnier than the TV version of Charles Addams' cartoon strip. The plot isn’t really the point (a Fester lookalike attempts to usurp the Addams' fortune), but the jokes come machine gun fast and the casting is absolutely inspired.
