It's one of the most cynically made, indifferently written and performed studio films I've seen in quite some time.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

It doesn't make for a great film, but it also doesn't make for a terrible one. Rather it's another average family film that plays it safe despite its claims to edginess.

The story skitters off in so many directions, it feels like the disembodied hand Thing on a tear.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Aside from an amusing Uncle Fester it's not funny enough, there's nothing for anyone over the age of 11.

Lacks more effort in the staging and especially... in the jokes. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
November 7, 2019
A film made in autopilot mode, with just few good moments. [Full review in Spanish]

Nothing more than toddler fodder. It's so sweet, the Addams clan would burn it in a bonfire.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
November 8, 2019
It underestimates its viewers, losing the nostalgic halo that could have worked as a impeller of empathy towards the story. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
October 17, 2019
The film would have done well to keep things simple, and leave the characters room to breathe.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 31, 2019
Everything drifts to an action plot that has little to do with the gothic eccentricities of the family. And the edifying messages for children appear. [Full review in Spanish]
November 5, 2019
This bland film needed more wit and macabre. Watch it just to reacquaint yourself with the beloved characters you've grown up watching. Otherwise, avoid.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 28, 2019
It's just a witless selection of sight gags, creaky one-liners, rickety morals and dated pop culture references, thrown together with minimum regard for the source material. Get it out of my sight, please.

Anyone who's still engaged by the end of the movie is probably too young to remember the original.
Full Review | Original Score: C
October 10, 2019
No matter what the inspiration, this new Addams Family has the unmistakable, unavoidable whiff of cinematic leftovers.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
October 28, 2019
The laughs are a bit dreary too, with little beyond the family's flipped tastes and macabre worldview. Pink and fluffy, they recoil. Sharp and nasty, they rejoice. Thirty years suddenly seems like a lifetime ago.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 10, 2019
The Addams Family isn't a scream, it's a painfully generic kids' film.
October 28, 2019
It's not poor, exactly, and the artwork is jolly good, but the narrative is often incoherent and any youngsters coming fresh to the characters will be, if not mortified, mystified.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

This is a surprisingly dull movie.
Full Review | Original Score: C
October 14, 2019
This latest iteration of the classic family leaves quite a bit to be desired, and even a really solid voice-cast can't quite overcome the perfunctory nature of this revival.
November 8, 2019
Don't expect any of the wit or charm of the 1960s TV show or Barry Sonnenfeld's big-screen adaptations. Monstrous. But not in kooky, spooky way.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
