This origin casts the Addams family as an immigrant story, and the film leans so hard into the theme of accepting those different from us and valuing diversity over conformity,

One of those properties that works no matter the format whether a series movie or its latest iteration, a stop-motion animated movie, that's worthy of two snaps up.

The animation is sharp, right down to Lurch's fingernails. The music is well-placed. The famous theme song pops up now and then but is not overdone.

...it's sweet anyway, and like it or not, a sequel is a spookily sure thing.

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.

Throw in a fantastic vocal cast... and the result is a terrific way to temporarily escape festive season madness.

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.

This version of The Addams Family is without a doubt the most faithful to Charles Addams' original, at least when it comes to the artistic design of the characters. [Full Review in Spanish]

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.

Lacking a visually pleasing animation style and or a unique story, The Addams Family is less kooky and ooky than eh, okay.

It's fine. I was entertained by it.

Merlina and her soulmate in the "real world..." contribute to the best moments of the movie, with jokes that adults familiar with the series are more likely to celebrate. [Full Review in Spanish]

It feels like a long time since Addams-style wordplay was last in cinemas and it feels good to hear it again.

Sure, The Addams Family may not reach the ghoulish heights of its predecessors, but the key ingredients are still thankfully there.

An excellent premise and a good start falters as the story proceeds toward its Great Moral Lesson; probably most enjoyable for younger audiences, who may all join together in song by the conclusion.
