There's plenty of fun to be had with this snappy animated retread... there are enough confrontations and spook-based visual gags to make it an enjoyable, disposable jaunt with a timely and positive message about how best to shut down a bully.
This isn't a film only for children or old-school fans. There's something here for everyone. It's a clever, funny movie with a message about family, even the quirky ones who we want to belittle or make fun of.
There have been a fair few Addams Family adaptations over the years but, following a clumsy set-up, this latest entry (the first in two decades) ends up as exultantly kooky, spooky, and consequently ooky as its predecessors.
Anyone hoping the reanimated Adammses would tango straight to your heart like Raul Julia will be disappointed. For a less critically discerning audience, of 10 years old and under, The Addams Family may just become your new best fiends this Halloween.
