The Addams Family Animation Movie Review
It is again all about family, love, inclusion and tolerance. The messages themselves make the movie in a timely fashion. While it is all based on a 60’s TV show, the movie moves into the future. Wednesday goes to school and the family reaches out to the people in a town nearby. The plot of the movie is based on the antagonist in the film, a mainstream, TV personality that ends up instigating people against The Addams using fear.
It creates for great conversation with the kids and the reverse bullying.
The soundtrack is great! Get ready to start singing with the rest of the moviegoers on more than one ocassion!
The animation brings back the loveable quirky characters that are the family. Unfortunately, to me, not enough. While star-sstudded, the acting does not deliver for me. In addition to that, some of the slap stick moments that could have you bursting out laughing, are just too bland. Some other parts that could be amazing pass by too quickly.
To Scary For the Littles?
No. It is not. Maybe a couple of places where sensitive children will fear for the family. Like when the crowd wants to get them, or their house is being damaged. Talking about the younger ones, there are no bad words or gestures that I can recall.
