Random 90s Movie Review #3

Review #3 is for The Addams Family, from 1991.

23 years later (yikes!), and this movie is surprisingly not bad. 

*Casting was well done. Gomez and Morticia are total hotties; I'd say this is my favorite character for Anjelica Huston, and Raul Julia was a badass in the Street Fighter movie. Too bad that one was awful. Christina Ricci nails her role as Wednesday, and can you ever go wrong with Christopher Lloyd?

*Awesome raps provided by MC Hammer (who was just going by "Hammer" at this point).

*Plot revolves around a money scheme, much like other old tv shows turned into movies in the 90s (The Flintstones, The Beverly Hillbillies, etc.; any others you can think of?)

Why you should watch this movie: To see for yourself that Hammer's raps do indeed make sense when paired with the Addams Family.

Why you shouldn't watch this movie: You are an easily offended person and don't want to witness Wednesday asking a Girl Scout if her cookies are "made of real Girl Scouts" (this is actually my favorite scene).

My rating: One snap up. Still holds up well, at least for when you want to watch something silly.


  1. One of the few films where I actually think the sequel was better. Addams Family was amazing, but nothing beats Debbie.... ;)

    1. Why isn't Addams Family Values on Netflix?? They put the first one on there as a tease. Haven't seen the sequel since seeing it at a theater, so, needless to say I remember nothing. And now my interest is piqued.
