As I grew up watching The Addams Family in the '60s, I was was really looking forward to this animated version. I was so disappointed. It was absolutely awful!!! I thought it may have just been a generational thing, but my 11-year old granddaughter and her best friend watched it with me, and they both thought it was lame, too. It isn't often I recommend a pass on a new animated film, but if you are a fan of any other version of The Addams Family, you be best to skip this one. However, if you've never seen any of the other Addams Family films or the sitcom, you may find some value in it.
