“Addams Family” Animation Falls Short of Expectations

by Gillian Detesta

There are absolutely, positively, no other words I can use to describe the new “The Addams Family” movie other than horrendous.   

Let me start out by saying that I am and always have been a huge fan of  “The Addams Family,” so when I first heard that an animated version was coming out, I was beyond excited.   

Then I saw the trailer.    

I was almost instantly turned off by the movie. I didn’t like the animation style as soon as I saw it.  

Then, Fester opened his mouth and let out one of the worst voices I’d ever heard in my life. Fester has no teeth, so he has a lisp. I get it, but the combo of the lisp on top of his harsh, loud voice was just too much for me.   

Even after not really enjoying the trailer, I decided to see this movie. I didn’t have high hopes for it, but after all, it is still “The Addams Family,” and my friend wanted to go.  

I shouldn’t of gone. 

It was probably one of the worst 1 hour and 45 minutes I’ve ever had.  

The overall plot was pointless.The main conflict didn’t pick up until over halfway through the movie, and the whole problem was solved within 3 minutes. 

I’m not joking. 

This movie was a flop, and I wouldn’t recommend it.  

As sad as it is to say, this movie was a subpar two out of five stars for me.
