To say I was apprehensive about this film is an understatement. I was a kid when the 1991, and 1993 ones came out, so I saw them quite a bit over the years. I was worried this cartoon version wouldn’t capture the essence of ‘The Addams Family’, and was just more of a marketing and money making ploy than anything. It has a great cast with Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things, IT), Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Carrie), Charlize Theron, and even Snoop Dogg as cousin it.
The movie was better than I thought it would be, and I was pleasantly surprised. They give several nods to the previous films. There’s jokes that only the adults understand, that will keep them from getting bored, while the kids still love it. It’s a great family film, if you’re looking for a good Halloween film to take the kids to, this one is for you.
