Sooo good, but sooo wrong.
#25 – Addams Family Values
One of the rare instances in which the sequel is 1,000,000 times better than the original. Skip the first one and cut straight to the superior Addams Family Values. More funny than creepy, this is still the perfect film to get kids into the mood for Halloween. The movie isn’t just a dash for cash, but a wonderful yarn about family and how taxing new additions can be. It’s kinda like the Godfather II but with Uncle Fester.
Now, I must admit, I have a little bias here. I have been a huge Chas Addams fan forever. I was raised on this rock-em sock-em single panel comics when I was a kid and I won’t lie, those twisted little masterpieces left their mark. Sure, some of the humor is a little politically incorrect by 21st Century standards, but I can’t help it. Wanna give yourself a holiday treat? Look up Chas Addams masterpieces on the Inter-Webs. Brilliant stuff!
