What used to be a childhood favorite, The Addams Family fails to recreate, or even build, the classic family. The main focus is on a gimmicky culture shaming plot, which focuses on Pugsley and Wednesday finding their identities. Save your money.

I am an avid fan of the Addams family, and rewatch their movies each Halloween season. When I saw there was to be an animated re-make, I pictured it to be a mixture of the timelessness of their previous films and the entertainment of The Nightmare Before Christmas - fun for the whole family. However, as a young adult, I was not in the least bit entertained. The story line was definitely created for children, depicting the importance of inclusion/acceptance and family bond. Which I'm sure is very important for the younger generations. Yet I just was unable to connect with my long-standing enthusiasm for the Addams family during this movie.
This movie reminded me so much of the 2012 version of The Lorax. It was a bland, uninspired rehashing of something we all know and love, created for the sole purpose of making money. With the same run of the mill "family friendly" animation we've all seen a hundred times. It even smashes you over the head with it's lesson in the same way.
First of all, the characters are beyond ugly. Morticia and Lurch were the only ones who looked decent and Gomez was the worst of all. In a movie where everything else is bland and washed of originality seeing random characters who looks that gross and greasy is nothing less than a shock. At first I thought it was to contrast the pretty plastic people in town, but many of them look just as hideous as the Addams family,
Second of all, the message. Honestly the fact that they took the "be yourself" message and included the Addams family themselves in it was a nice twist, instead of having the towns people be the only bad guys. However it's difficult to appreciate that when the only reason the towns people ever show up is to drill the point home, they literally sing a song with the lyrics "why be yourself when you can be just like every body else!" if you couldn't tell, subtly is not this movies strong point.
Third, the jokes were boring, they were the exact same LOOK HOW WACKY THIS FAMILY IS which is alright but when it's the only joke the movie knows how to tell it gets boring. Also there was a really weird foot fetish joke thrown in that made no sense. I only laughed once in the whole movie and that was because they made a joke about divorce that came out of nowhere and it surprised me.
Fourth, Snoop Dog. Who was in the movie as cousin IT however his voice is jumbled and pitched up, so you can't tell it's him unless you know already. That just makes it so much clearer that they only called him in to have his name on the box and make more money.
And lastly, the song that played at the end credits was atrocious, it sounded like an old Pitbull song, which if you couldn't tell, doesn't exactly fit the Addams family too well.
Overall the movie is harmless and if you need to shut a kid up for a couple hours this should do the trick. But don't waste your time on this movie if you're over the age of 11.
