The Addams Family
For 25 years uncle Fester has been missing. An evil doctor finds out and introduces a fake Fester in an attempt to get the Adams Family’s money. The youngest daughter has some doubts as to the sincerity of the new uncle Fester. The fake uncle adapts very well to the strange family. Can the doctor carry out her evil plans and take over the Adams Family’s fortune?
This movie is based on Charles Addams’ characters and the early sixties TV series. The violence in the film is supposed to be fantasy based and much of it is obviously a joke, reflecting the macabre sense of humor of the family. It should be noted that there are several incidents of this kind of violence. One funny moment is seen when Gomez uses his combo to his safe, which is 2-10-11 and it stands for two eyes, ten fingers and eleven toes! Although the film has some funny moments, a neighbor of the Addams “damns” Gomez a couple of times after Gomez’ golf ball crashes through his window. The Dove Foundation never awards our Seal to a picture when a character is “damned” or told to “Go to H…” Therefore, we are unable to award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this picture as a family-friendly film.
