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.

  • The appeal of this "Addams Family," which doesn't break the mold, is simply to spend some more time in this gently spooky world, a gateway for budding creepsters and goths.

  • Even children will understand that the theme of encouraging individual expression would be more compelling if the storyline wasn't so resolutely dull.

  • As quickly as Thing can snap its fingers, we'll soon forget our visit with this version of The Addams Family.

  • All this talent, but an empty crypt of a committee-written script, which goes in mainly for cornball one-liners and sight gags working the eternal Halloween conceit of the Addams saga.

  • 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.

  • It doesn't attempt to talk down to children, one of my biggest pet peeves about some family films.
