The Addams Family

Critics Consensus

The Addams Family's starry voice cast and eye-catching animation aren't enough to outweigh its saccharine handling of the delightfully dark source material.

  • If it ultimately feels a bit thin - more stylish pastiche than full-blooded reanimation - it should still distract your little terrors for an hour and a half.

  • This uncreepy and decidedly unkooky film is a letdown.

  • The message here is extremely trite and pat... There's not much to it, but if your kids want to see it, it's fine.

    Oct 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Its celebration of misunderstood outsiderdom is too generic to amount to much more than a bargain-basement 'Despicable Me'.

    Oct 18, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • With sledgehammer subtlety, it transforms the antics of the titular clan into a tract for political correctness.

  • Anyone who's still engaged by the end of the movie is probably too young to remember the original.
