An average production. [Full Review in Spanish]

All the casting here, like the film itself, feels too marketing driven, and the latter is obviously an excuse for a bad hip-hop remix of the classic TV show theme song.
October 11, 2019
An underwhelming story and hit-or-miss jokes ultimately doom The Addams Family, not that they'd mind that in the least.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.75/5

Can't help but feel like a wasted opportunity to truly embrace the source material's dark yet likeable temperament.

I think this franchise has finally reached its expiration date.

The Addams Family makes for a fun-ish Halloween film that is safe for most kids to watch; I just wish the movie had as much personality as the theme song did.

Unfortunately, the plot is a nightmare- and not in a positive Addams-Family type of way. It's all over the place, lacking focus and not a single element of it is riveting.

While it may not be either scary or particularly funny, The Addams Family is worth a watch for its voice cast, but disappointment is imminent.

Like the candy that will inevitably get loaded into Addams Family-branded buckets on stoops at the end of the month, it's only empty calories.

For a film that's sole purpose is to teach youngsters the asininity of assimilation, "The Addams Family" does a lot of borrowing from better movies.

All the right stuff is there, you can pretty much find everything you're looking for, but the presentation just kind of seems like it's thrown together to make a profit.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 10, 2019
Pervasive deadpan humor must be partnered with swift editing and a strong script that moves swiftly along. There are lots of good jokes, but they are expected to keep the audience entertained without the use of enough contrast.

...The film's simplistic and episodic plot put a major dampener on what could have been a welcome breath of fresh air for family animation.

It might entertain a slim swath of tweens, but this family deserves better than that.

At first I was up on it, not terrible but seeing good things about it...but the potential breaks your heart. They slacked off on rendering this movie-quality.
October 25, 2019
For a movie that's priding itself on a theme of being different, diverse...after a while, it just feels like any other family animated comedy out there...not that I didn't like it, just highly disappointed.
October 14, 2019
There's barely a nod to character development or relationships. Instead, we're dragged from one unconnected scene to the next. In addition to all of this, the animation is lackluster and flat.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
November 4, 2019
Mixed animation styles and derivative storytelling combined with the feather-light tone and obvious messaging make this feel less like an Addams Family film and more like the Munsters.​
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
October 30, 2019
There are some sly, funny touches, but the storyline is thin and forgettable, and the voice cast merely sound like their predecessors.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 23, 2019
The story feels lazy and reductive, rendering the Addamses toothless and uninspiring.
