Product Description

Raul Julia, Anjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd. They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're altogether ooky, The Addams Family ." The hit 1960s series was great fodder for these two 1990s box office smashes with great reincarnations of Gomez and Morticia Addams by Julia and Huston, and, of course, Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Fester. Includes The Addams Family (1991/99 min.) and Addams Family Values (1993/94 min.). Color/PG-13/widescreen.

The Addams Family
Director Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black) brings his distinctly cartoonish sensibility to this feature film version of the old Charles Addams comic strip. Anjelica Huston was born to play Morticia Addams, matriarch of the ghoulish Addams clan, while the late Raul Julia is a very agreeable, lusty Gomez. But it's Christina Ricci who arguably steals the show as their stone-faced daughter, Wednesday. As is often the problem with adaptations of comics or television shows, somehow an original story has to be implemented that doesn't clutter things up. But clutter is an issue here as the script gets tangled on a lame plot concerning efforts to steal the Addams' house and fortune. Still, it's fun to see an ideal cast reanimate an old favorite. --Tom Keogh

The Addams Family Values
This somewhat more cohesive follow-up to The Addams Family has the same director, Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black), but a better story line. Joan Cusack plays a busty gold digger who ingratiates herself into the Addams home and convinces Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) that she wants to marry him. Besides Lloyd, the cast includes Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia, ideal as those Brontëan lovers, Morticia and Gomez. But Christina Ricci again walks away with the best moments as the chilly Wednesday Addams, making life miserable for two camp counselors (Peter MacNicol and Christine Baranski) who want her to fit in with other kids.--Tom Keogh

Customer Reviews

Unique films without being overly violent or gory.
Both main actors do a splendid job and Christina Ricci plays Wednesday to a tee.
They just dont make humorour movies like this anymore that are clean and funny.

(This is a one disk set with both movies on the same disk). The movies are great, but the only thing that bothered me is, they are not in wide-screen format as promised in the advertisements. It even says it's supposed to be wide screen on the disk itself, but its not. But the movies are the same great movies...just have to get over the full-screen formatting.

The original Addams family movie is the return of Uncle Fester who lost at sea in the bermuda triangle and finds his way home with amnesia. Though the Addams are finally reunited they are separated again with the help of a greedy real-estate agent, lone shark, and less then friendly Judge. Forced out of the comfort of their mansion the Addams must learn to live with the outside world until Fester starts to remember life with his family and they band together to fight to get everything they had back to the way it was. Every Cast Member plays their roll wonderfully enough to make you forget they're not the original cast members to the TV show.

The Addams Family Values is a sequel to the first movie with the original cast members (family members evil characters are introduced). It starts off with Mortisha giving birth to a baby boy. With the new baby in the house Mortisha and Gomes decide to hire a nanny (Joan Cusack) who turns out to be a demented murder that agrees to marry Fester and tries to tear him apart from his family to steal the Addams Family fortune.

These are both enjoyable movies. The first one is my favorite of the two, but the second is still highly enjoyable and worth having on this disk. All the major roles are perfectly cast as far as I'm concerned. The special effects are fantastic for their time. I've always wondered how they did the effects for Thing. If the movie were more recent It'd be done as a CG character, but I'm pretty sure this was before they would have been able to do it that way.

I love both movies although Family Values has a slightly better plot than Values. I do like Values better though. Both movies are highly recommended for watching and buying if you like funny "horror" movies. Horror in the sense that it is an atmospheric horror type movie without any actual gore, etc. on the screen. It's all implied and left up to the viewer's imagination. If you've seen the tv show, then expect more of that. Anjelica Houston is perfect as Morticia and Raul Julia is perfect as Gomez. The rest of the cast is excellent also in both movies.

Both movies are widescreen and on one dvd. Unless there are hidden easter eggs, the only special features on the dvd for both movies are the theatrical trailers for both movies--a total of 4 trailers on the dvd. Both movies have English subtitles only. The audio options are English 5.1 surround and English 2.0 surround. The dvd transfer looks fine. The dvd itself plays fine in my old, cranky player, which is rare since it usually has trouble playing discs because of the copyright protection on the discs I have.

Why I'm disappointed is that I expected more special features on the disc itself. I was surprised when I opened the disc and found both movies on one disc. If the lack of special features does not bother you (and it doesn't bother me a lot), then this set is the one you want since it a reasonable price for both movies. Recommended.

The movie Addam's Family is a little darker than the orginal TV bunch. More sinister -- less innocent in intent.

Wonderful campy performances by the entire cast, especially Wednesday. The camp sequences in _Addams Family Values_ alone is worth the price of admission.

Very witty screenplays -- I pretty much laughed my way through both of these.

Two thumbs up.

Full disclosure --- I don't know diddily-squat about The Addams Family beyond these two movies and the theme song.
* Black-and-white TV show? Watched one episode.
* Video games? Played a few, sucked at all of them.
* Comic strips? Never seen them.
* Cartoons? Umm...there were cartoons?

Now that we got that out of the way, this two-movie combo is a great dose of macabre comedy. These two movies --- "The Addams Family" (1991) and "Addams Family Values" (1993) --- are filled with great style, terrific cast, and smart humor that continue to surprise.

The highest of compliments must go the casting. Every one is pitch-perfect in their roles, including the guest stars from each film. I'll get the elephant in the room out of the way, first: Christina Ricci's Wednesday Adams absolutely steals every scene she's in. Don't get me wrong, everyone is terrific with their work, but I think it's fair to say that what people will remember most about these movies (especially the sequel) is that adolescent Wednesday Adams is the one character we can't wait to see next.

But to ramble on and on about Wednesday would be a disservice to the strong leads in Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia patriarchs Morticia and Gomez Adams. Their constant infatuation and undying love for one another is delightfully creepy and intoxicatingly each other anyway. The total disregard (or confusion) at normal human behavior is simply The Addams Family behaving naturally, and Morticia and Gomez's encouragement of the strange rituals drives it all. I don't know how else I would've imagined the Uncle Fester character before these movies, but after Christopher Lloyd's bizarre interpretation, I don't care.
