Review: “The Addams Family” Entertains All Ages
Pop culture fans must have been familiar with “The Addams Family”, a peculiar family whose story was told on a comic created by Charles Addams. Having been transformed into a live-action film in 1991, now the tale of The Addams family was turned into an animated movie by director Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan. The movie was dubbed by a series of A-list actors like Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, and Allison Janney. Gomez and Morticia Addams are a loving couple whose weird life made it hard for them to find a perfect neighbourhood. After marriage, they decided to start a life in New Jersey thinking that there would be no one that could protest their antics. Their life was peaceful for thirteen years, before reality TV star Margaux Needler aimed to build a neighbourhood called “Assimilation” near The Addams Family’s residence.
The move caused havoc in the family who at the same time was preparing Sabre Mazurka (coming-of-age celebration) for their son, Pugsley and preventing Wednesday, their daughter from her curiosity. The dynamics among The Addams family and their consolidation with their neighbours become the main attention for this movie. Throughout the movie, we can learn about how to be persistent with our own principle and lifestyle, but at the same time, compromise with others in order to live harmoniously. As this movie is projected towards family and all-ages demography, it is a tad less dark than the live action version. The bubbly animation and big eyed figures makes the movie become tolerable to children. If you are a fan of their dark and mysterious charm, then the animated version is not for you. “The Addams Family” is an entertaining film directed for all ages demography instead, and there is nothing wrong with that.
