Title: The Addams Family
Director: Barry Sonnenfeld
Run time: 1hr 39m
“The Addams step out of Charles Addams’ cartoons. They live with all of the trappings of the macabre (including a detached hand for a servant) and are quite wealthy. Added to this mix is a crooked accountant and his loan shark and a plot to slip the shark’s son into the family as their long lost Uncle Fester. Can the false Fester find his way into the vault before he is discovered?”
1:34 – Interesting font these credits have, some of it not that legible.
4:27 – It must take Thing quite a while to get around that massive house.
10:12 – I really need to think about summer/winter wardrobes.
12:08 – Thing seems to get around though.
16:34 – You wouldn’t have thought the Adammses needed a lawyer. Although perhaps for the things they get up to.
19:38 – I love having your own background music, judging the tempo in the room.
22:11 – Her accent was almost as good as Franck’s.
24:12 – I love how Morticia seems to float.
29:56 – I think we need a slide down to our podcasting bunker.
33:05 – That had the little music that occurs when Lara finds a secret. Treasure!
36:09 – Christina Ricci is so good and so terrifying.
40:54 – Pet vulture.
49:00 – They don’t look very much like brothers.

1:15:29 – If you learn any lesson from this film, it is to be nice to judges.
1:25:58 – Loving Thing, sometimes obvious CGI, sometimes just a hand through a table. Mostly very good though.
1:31:39 – Pugsley as mini me is genius.
I love this, particularly Wednesday. Anything that celebrates the weird is good by me. Watching it again after quite a long time made me see some of its flaws and that it wasn’t quite as good as I remembered it being. But I still love it, and it’s still very quotable to me.
