Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Addams Family isn’t perfect but it certainly tries hard and, whilst every joke doesn’t land, just enough do to make this a pretty diverting and often fun 90 minutes. A great voice cast (Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Bette Midler & Finn Wolfhard) with some witty Tim Burton/ Laika inspired animation help the film along and for sure I was never bored, even if the film does little better or different than the original live action movies. So a fun distraction for sure but hardly essential viewing.
Best Bit: School.
