In "Addams Family Values," the jokes are funnier, the story is much more enjoyable, and the characters are more developed and easy to follow. The original cast is back for another round of gags and comedy, while the writers and director Barry Sonnenfield have chosen to stick with a story that works with the gags and laughs instead of just providing an outlet for them. This is one of the rare sequels that surpasses the original; I loved this movie!
The movie begins with the arrival of baby Pubert, in a hilarious send-up of birth scenes with a twist: the mother-to-be enjoys the labor pains. From this point on, the movie goes into three different stories which lead into one another. One dives into the children reacting to the new baby, doing everything from dropping him from the roof to placing him under the guillotine. Their antics are relentless, which leads into the second story as Gomez and Morticia decide to hire a nanny, picking the good-natured Debbie Jilinsky to care for their infant son. Fester falls head over heels in love with the new nanny, who is actually a murderess out for his wealth and fortune.
Debbie's suspicions that Wednesday and Pugsley know too much leads into the third story, as she has them shipped off to summer camp, where the sun and cheery attitudes of the campers and counselors are enough to make even the audience cringe in fear. As Debbie carries out her devious plans, the children are put through the hells of the camp until they can take it no longer, rounding out the movie's comedic climax with laughs galore.
Like the previous film, the original cast remains intact, with the exception of Grandmother Addams.

The other night the first "Addams Family" film was on local television, and in watching it I was reminded of how much I liked the show, and the films made from it - but as much as I loved the first, "Addams Family Values" surpasses it.
The storylines here are fuller; none of that a Fester who isn't Fester is really Fester stuff that seemed too scripted. Here, the 3 ongoing plots are more naturally-born from there characters:
Morticia and Gomez (Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia, the most perfect casting seen in film in some time) have just had a new baby. Dealing with new parenthood is bad enough, but when your two older children are doing their best to do away with their new baby brother ... well, even though he's pretty capable of taking care of himself, Morticia and Gomez have their hands full;
Then there's Debbie, played BRILLIANTLY by the underrated Joan Cusack, who comes to help with the children but instead is a notorious Black Widow-style murderess bent on marrying Fester and getting her hands on the Addams's fortune. Part of her plan in doing so is to get rid of the two older children, Pugsley and Wednesday, by sending them to a summer camp;
Pugsley and Wednesday are horrified by the cheery atmosphere at camp -- not to mention the caffeinated perkiness of the camp counselors, who are at times both revolted and ticked off by the 'weirdness' of the Addams kids.
All plotlines come together in a hilarious ending that remains true to the characters, and seems to come naturally from the story.
Christina Ricci (another of Hollywood's great underrated performers), as Wednesday Addams, again steals every scene she's in with ease -- her deadpan playing of Wednesday could not be more perfect.

I actually liked this movie better then the first one, simply because Christina Ricci's portrayal of Wednesday went from wonderful to brilliant. Slightly older, Ricci further developed her character and projected pure evil. I thought she "stole the show".

In addition, I liked the actress who portrayed "Grandmama" better then the previous one. Like Wednesday, she turned up the "evil meter". She just seemed to fit in better.

Addams Family Values has to be watched a number of times to catch all the funny little phrases and one liners. Brilliant writing combines with great characterizations to produce a movie to delight those who love dark humor.

Payback time at the camp was simply delicious. As a child, I would have found a lot in common with Wednesday's attitude towards the whole camping experience, with its fake facade of peace, love and all that BS. It brought back a lot of my own feelings as a youngster who was a bit out of the ordinary and often mocked because of it. Go Wednesday!

Usually sequels fall short of the original, but this one, IMO, went beyond the first film for comedy and originality. No fan of the Addams family, and especially Wednesday, should miss adding this gem to his/her DVD collection.

And I wish to add a big postumous thank you to Charles Addams himself, whose dark sense of humor and brilliant artwork produced this deliciously gothic family in the first place. I'm sure he would be pleased as punch at these fine portrayals of his ghoulish creations.
