The Addams Family 2 may not live up to the first film, but it still gives young audiences a kooky trip with a spooky family.
It seems only fitting that even the spookiest family would have trials they need to overcome just like the rest of us. Throw in a family vacation, and you have the makings for a good ole fashion family disaster.
Wednesday Addams is bringing a new level of tween/teen to her character as she becomes increasingly annoyed by her family. As a parent of a new teen, I can see what the film was trying to bring to the story for parents. It’s a challenging time, and it’s not all rainbows and butterflies, or in the case of the Addams family, bats and rainclouds.
Families will enjoy the short escape on a road trip with a strange family. It does, however, take the family out of their spooky home and places them around the country in “regular” settings. This takes the creepy feel out of traditional Addams Family films. There is something about seeing the Addams at Niagra Falls or the Grand Canyon that doesn’t sit right. They put their own spin on the visit but it still feels a bit disconnected from the stories we know and love.
The music is a ton of fun though. We get a special performance from Snoop Dogg, who voices Cousin It. As well as new collabs from Megan Thee Stallion, Maluma and Rock Mafia, and Christina Aguilera’s new rendition of the famous theme song.
The Addams Family 2 is now in theaters and available On Demand.
Everyone’s favorite spooky family is back in the animated comedy sequel, The Addams Family 2. In this all-new movie, we find Morticia and Gomez distraught that their children are growing up, skipping family dinners, and totally consumed with “scream time.” To reclaim their bond, they decide to cram Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, and the crew into their haunted camper and hit the road for one last miserable family vacation. Their adventure across America takes them out of their element and into hilarious run-ins with their iconic cousin, It, as well as many new kooky characters. What could possibly go wrong?
