Charles Addams’ dark characters get the film treatment in Barry Sonnenfeld’s THE ADDAMS FAMILY, which is something of a cross between the actual New Yorker comics and the 1960s television show. Not trying to lean too far to either, the movie stays at a safe plane, even incorporating a vague plot involving two grifters, Gordon and Abigail Craven, posing as Uncle Fester and a renowned psychiatrist (Christopher Lloyd and Elizabeth Wilson) who are in cahoots to rob the Addams of their fortune and house. The problem arises when Craven seems to go against his take-the-money-and-run attitude and when the Addams themselves appear to enjoy every minute that they’re being taken advantage of. It suits the dark humor well, because since the Addams live in an alternative universe of their own creation in which dark is light, repugnant is beautiful, pain equals pleasure, death is life, and chaos equals order, it leaves the door open for many of their Gothic eccentricities to pull the rug over Lloyd and Wilson over and over again. It’s clever, although its only problem is the “needing to introduce the characters we all know” setup which like in all movies based on comics or television shows, looks obvious.
But despite this, everyone is uniformly excellent. Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston lend their looks to embody their cartoon counterparts and are the romantics at the heart of this decidedly perverse story. Christopher Lloyd is also great in his representation of Uncle Fester. But hands down: the one who walks away with the entire movie is Christina Ricci who plays Wednesday as if she were living the role day by day. There’s a sadistic gleam in her eyes and her voice that not many child actors have and I think that any other actor of the time that this film was made would have been unable to fit into this difficult part. Other than that, the tone of the movie is perfect: as dark as it wants to be, but never letting its Gothic setting drown it in an inescapable mire. On the contrary, we’re constantly aware that this is a typical American family who lives upside down and who are happy in being so even when we gawk and cringe at their oddities.
Unique and Funny
I didn’t find anything so interesting in the beginning of the movie, except for its unique characters and costumes. I also didn’t fully understand if the they were all ghosts or what, and yeah, I fell asleep a little of boredom. But when I found out the plot, it started to get my full attention. The humor was so funny.
Little Christina Ricci, her acting was awesome, and so the others. Btw, at first I thought the woman who played Morticia Addams was Cher because they looked very similar to me, from the distance. Funniest thing was when the Thing tried to explained the urgent situation to Gomez when it itself had problem talking cause it is just a hand with no mouth, LOL. Also when Morticia acted weird by cutting the all the roses, the red flower, instead of the bad leaves or thorns. So hilarious.
