Plot

The story begins as Gomez (Raúl Juliá) mentions to his lawyer, Tully Alford (Dan Hedaya), that he has not spoken to his brother Fester since a quarrel 25 years ago. .Gomez's wife, Morticia (Anjelica Huston), invites Tully and his wife, Margaret (Dana Ivey), to a séance in which they will attempt to contact the spirit of Fester, believed to be lost in the Bermuda Triangle all of this time.^ FESTER (joyfully, to Gomez and Morticia) Come on!

Tully gets a surprise visit at his office from loan shark Abigail Craven (Elizabeth Wilson), and her son Gordon (Christopher Lloyd), who have come to collect what he owes them. .Gordon harasses Tully until he discovers the gold doubloons with which Gomez has paid the monthly expenses.^ TULLY I'm your friend, Gordon - think of the doubloons!

As they ask, they hear three knocks at the door. They answer it to find Gordon (as Fester with amnesia) and Abigail (posing as a psychiatrist named Dr. Greta Pinder-Schloss). .Gomez is initially overjoyed, but his elation quickly turns to suspicion as Gordon fails to remember key events from his childhood.^ FESTER (delighted, to Gomez remembering this childhood favorite) "Wake The Dead"!

Gordon attempts to break into the vault but is foiled by several treacherous booby traps, such as rusty chains, a toxic underground lake, and a piranha tank.
Gomez reconciles with Gordon, in spite of his doubts, and he and Morticia throw a party that draws an extensive portion of the Addams clan. .When Wednesday is sent to check on Fester, she finds Gordon in the bathroom, with Abigail shaving his head.^ FESTER (to Wednesday) I tell you what - we'll give you a head start.

Wednesday thinks that he is an impostor and flees to the family graveyard; Gordon pursues her, but soon has to get back to the party so that no one becomes suspicious.
.In the meantime, Tully has discovered that Fester, being the older brother, is legally in control of the entire Addams estate.^ Therefore, it is with no small amount of personal satisfaction that I declare Fester Addams legal executor of the Addams estate and rightful owner of all possessions and properties contained therein with one exception.

He enlists the aid of a cantankerous judge who lives next door to the mansion. As the party winds down, the family begins searching for the missing Wednesday — all but Gordon, who volunteers to stay behind at the mansion in case she shows up. When she is found, the family returns and finds Tully behind the locked front gate, holding a restraining order that bars them from the property. Gomez takes the issue to court, only to discover that his angry neighbor is presiding over the case. After Gordon wins in court, he, Tully, and Abigail return to the mansion and continue their efforts to reach the vault, much to the dismay of Gordon, who has started to grow attached to the Addamses.
.Meanwhile, the Addamses attempt to adapt to their new living situation as Gomez moves his brood into a motel.^ Morticia and Gomez have drifted into the front hall; they are moving toward the front door.

Cast

Differences from the television series

The film was much closer to the description Charles Addams made for the show, and followed his instructions closely.[citation needed]
The film differs from the television series in several ways. .The most significant change is that Fester is an Addams, Gomez's brother; in the series, he was the brother of Morticia's mother, Hester.^ FESTER (joyfully, to Gomez and Morticia) Come on!
  • Addams Family, The Script at IMSDb. 10 September 2009 16:43 UTC www.imsdb.com [Source type: General]

.Also, in the series, Grandmama was Gomez's mother, Eudora; the film notes that Gomez's parents were murdered by an angry mob, and subsequently implies that Grandmama is in fact Morticia's mother (even though Charles Addams originally said that the character was Gomez's mother), with Morticia frequently referring to Grandmama as 'Mama'. Both reflected changes to the family relations first made in the 1973-1975 animated series.^ Gomez and Morticia both look out.

Cousin Itt's voice is of a decidedly higher pitch in the film, and his hair is completely straight, lacking the curls he featured in the television series.
In the television series, Gomez Addams does not appear to have any supernatural powers, behaving like a normal (albeit eccentric) wealthy gentleman. However, in the film version Gomez Addams is capable of many feats, including moving at high speed and sword fighting with superhuman poise and alacrity. .Other members of the family also have a notably high tolerance of pain or injury; Morticia, for instance, seems mildly amused (if not aroused) by Abigail and Tully's attempts to torture her with a rack.^ ABIGAIL (shoving Tully toward the rack) Do it!

Songs

The soundtrack for The Addams Family was released on December 3, 1991 and features most of Marc Shaiman's film score. The complete version of "Mamushka" was cut from the film after a key audience demographic from test screenings complained the song brought the movie to a stand-still.[1] .In all officially-released versions of The Addams Family, only one minute remains of the "Mamushka" scene, but there is a workprint (which has yet to circulate heavily) that contains the complete scene.^ Therefore, it is with no small amount of personal satisfaction that I declare Fester Addams legal executor of the Addams estate and rightful owner of all possessions and properties contained therein with one exception.

Deleted scenes

In addition to the complete "Mamushka" scene, there were several other major scenes filmed but cut from the final movie. Most of these scenes were deemed too violent and grotesque; they involve the following:
  • The introduction to Gomez and Morticia Addams in Tully and Margaret's point of view as well as Gomez leading Tully to his office
  • The aftermath of the sword fight including bills for "The Fester Addams Community"
  • The retrieving of the Addams' fortune and the leaving the mansion and Tully's entrance to see Abigail and Gordon
  • Grandmama's fog machine malfunctioning, falling off the roof of the Addams' mansion, and nearly decapitating Gomez
  • Grandmama ripping out Wednesday's loose tooth by tying it to a trap door and flinging it open
  • Wednesday depositing her newly-removed tooth into a cigar box full of animal teeth and glass eyes
  • During Gomez and Tully's sword fight, Gomez telling Tully he wished he would "drop by more often," to which Tully confesses that he's "a bleeder"
  • Letting Fester and Dr. Greta Pinder-Schloss in and letting them take their seats while having a chat
  • Fester climbing into the mansion's attic and seeing several glass display cases containing stuffed vampire bats
  • Wednesday catching Fester snooping around the attic and informing him that the one large empty glass display case is reserved for a school bully
  • When Morticia is trying to figure out why Gomez is so suspicious of Fester, Grandmama reads a passage from a large book that recommends they "Drain all his blood, replace it with vinegar overnight. Leave a headless rooster beneath his pillow. Smear his forehead, palms, and feet with the tears of a stillborn monkey. Add milk." Mortcia then reacts in disgust at the suggestion of adding milk
  • Fester showing Wednesday and Pugsley a hand grenade
  • Before Wednesday and Pugsley's performance, Gomez inviting Judge Womack to play a round of golf in his cemetery, to which Womack replies he'd "rather rot in hell"
  • A longer scene of Wednesday and Pugsley's theatrical performance (which includes more blood and Pugsley's severed prosthetic arm falling off the stage and landing in Judge Womack's lap)

Reception

With a domestic gross of $113,502,246 and a worldwide gross of $191,502,246, The Addams Family proved to be a financial success, as it eventually became the seventh highest grossing film of 1991.
Despite this, the film received mixed reviews. Critics were divided almost in half as Rotten Tomatoes, a web site which aggregates reviews from critics, proves that only 58 out of 100 critics gave a positive review. Although the RT Community gives it a much more gracious rating of 78%, the provided Rotten Tomatoes consensus reads: "The movie is peppered with amusing sight gags and one-liners, but the disjointed script doesn't cohere into a successful whole."
Jonathan Rosenbaum of the Chicago Reader called the film "A collection of one-liners, and that's about it," while critic Steven Crum wrote a positive review, saying that it was a perfect translation of the 1960s sitcom, and was just as ghoulishly hilarious. Despite the disjointed plot, some critical praise was given to the casting and visual style. Variety magazine wrote, "Despite inspired casting and nifty visual trappings, the eagerly awaited Addams Family figures a major disappointment."

Accolades

The Addams Family was awarded Best Horror Film of the Year in 1991 by the Horror Hall of Fame. Carel Struycken appeared at the award ceremony to receive the award on behalf of the cast.[4][5]

The Making of The Addams Family

A TV documentary, "The Making of The Addams Family", was produced to promote the film in 1991.

DVD release

The film been released on DVD in 2000 with only the 2 theatrical trailers as special features. It was subsequently (in 2006) re-released with its sequel on a single disc, with no new features.
