The Addams Family is back with more of the same macabre fun, but with the addition of a new little bouncing bundle of misery and pain added to the family. The nostalgia I have for these first films is certainly increased by the fact that probably this and "Casper"(1995) as a child made me develop my first celebrity crush on a young Christina Ricci. Although again the overall plot of the film is weak, the terrific cast and all their dark charms are back to deliver a sequel that I honestly prefer.

Not as good at the first one, with a weird plot structure and a whole lot of very broad social satire - dedicated to the admirable goal of making fun of rich white people, but having a very weird and '90s-y idea of how that works (including well-intentioned but uncomfortably-executed racial politics). That said, I understand why there's so much nostalgia for it - there's a ton of great jokes, great performances, and just the kind of pushback at societal norms that kids of that age need.

Meh. I like the Addams Family, I guess. Humor could have been darker. Any scene with Christina Ricci is gold, though. Holy shit. She was hot back in '93. I'm allowed to say that as I was 10 years old at the time.

Better and funnier than the first. Takes the Addams Family and puts them in the real world, where they can really do some hilarious damage. Once again, Julia, Huston, Lloyd and Ricci are perfect, but this time the plot is MUCH more interesting. Joan Cusack turns in one of her funnier performances as a psychopathic gold digger. Great skewering of "All-American Values" that we just don't see any more. "He's quite the lady killer." "Acquitted!"

It might just be my morose sense of humour but I found both Addams Family films hilarious, and this is one of those sequels where I wasn't disappointed in the least to say, "This is more of the same". There are more clever one liners in five minutes of this movie than in most other entire comedies.

In some ways this sequel is better than the original movie. Most of the original cast comes back and there are some new additions that really give this sequel some punch. I loved Joan Cusack in this movie. I am glad that Carol Kane took over for the Granmama. The baby added to this movie in many ways and I usually hate babies as a gimmick in movies. All of the scenes at the camp helped add some fun color to the movie thankfully. I couldn't have done another 2 hours at the mansion.

It retains all of the humor and style of the first Addams Family movie, but the story just isn't as memorable. Still, for a sequel to stay so true to the original, without going for cheap laughs or a new audience, is a feat in and of itself. Pretty good!

A.F.V reunites the great cast and focuses the plot again on Fester, but the story involving his marriage to a crazy babysitter is more developed than it was in the first film. The adherence to narrative is pleasing, but it comes at the expense of spontaneity, especially when plot mechanics begin to dominate. The set design also doesn't seem as meticulous, although it's still impressive.Thankfully the humour is darker, and Pugsley and Wednesday's rebellion at summer camp is black comic gold.

Sequel that shouldn't exist to a movie that has no business being anywhere near as good as it is, and it isn't just Raul Julia to thank. The goings on are completely redundant, but Joan Cusack is way, way funnier in the A-story, and the summer camp B-story is funnier than anything in the first film.

I simply do not believe my Addamses would be flirting with other people while dancing (of all things!) with one another. what are they, some loveless 90s sitcom couple? props to the dedicated moonbeam of light that will not leave Morticia's face for a moment, though

Is the score high because of fond childhood memories? At least partially, but it's also a lot more interesting, even if it's probably too horny for a family friendly film.

A disappointing snoozefest. It retains the awkward pacing, plot holes and lazy script of the '91 film (it even rehashes its main idea - why are these guys getting scammed all the time?) but without its charm or humour. The focus on a moronically lovestruck Fester is an odd, grating choice, while the camp subplot is neglected by the movie itself (and rightfully so as it's utterly and bafflingly useless). The saving grace is the cast, now including Joan Cusack and the always delightful Carol Kane.

Julia, Lloyd and Huston star as the older members of the most awesome family in fiction history, but they naturally do not compare to the disturbingly perfect little Christina Ricci as Wednesday Addams, whose scenes pretty much make the movie. Indubitably one of the greatest films of all time...

While this has a much better plot than the first, the returning ingredients don't quite mix together as well as they did the first time, with the humour and production design not as dark this time around and the film suffers somewhat because of it. The casting remains perfect though and fans will enjoy another outing with titular family.

Watched on Thanksgiving due to the Thanksgiving scene in the movie, which was pretty fun. Like the original, it takes a bit of time to adjust to the humor of the Addams Family.

"It is a rare feat to make a sequel better than its predecessor but here Sonnenfeld manages to do just that. With such a strong adult cast, it comes as a surprise when the children steal the show. With such dry and morbid humour, it feels that at times he was filming more for the parental viewers than the childrens."

With the same zany charm & oddball humor of the first film, it gets off to an iffy start, but finds its groove & pulls it together by the finale. Featuring great performances from Julia, Ricci, Cusack, Lloyd & the rest of the cast as well as a Christine Baranski appearance, it's a bit more over the top and a bit more ridiculous than its predecessor, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. For fans of the Addams clan, it'll be a fun ride, but it's likely not for everyone.
