|Gomez, morticia and their ghoulish household are prey to a scam involving long-lost uncle fester.|
Editor's NoteWhen long-lost Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) reappears after 25 years in the Bermuda Triangle, Morticia (Anjelica Huston) and Gomez (Raul Julia) ecstatically begin plans for a celebration that will wake the dead. Meanwhile, an evil lawyer is plotting ways to get at the ghoulish family's fortunes--which are stashed somewhere within a secret vault inside the family mansion. Only the Addams's daughter, Wednesday, played by the brilliant and stunningly stoic Christina Ricci, and the Addams's detached hand servant, Thing, suspect that something rotten is afoot. But can they prove anything before the vault is found and the Addams family is plunged into poverty? THE ADDAMS FAMILY is not only the cartoon and television family's film premiere but is also the directorial debut of talented cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld. It has a winningly dark sense of humor that manages to be both lighthearted and macabre.

Plot SummaryThe kooky and spooky Addams family, stars of cartoons and TV, are here in their feature-film premiere. A swindling lawyer attempts to get his hands on the family fortunes by planting an impostor in their midst. As the fiend (Christopher Lloyd) who claims to be their long-lost Uncle Fester attempts to find the location of the hidden vault, Morticia (Anjelica Huston) and Gomez (Raul Julia) plan a fete that will wake the dead, and only Thing and Wednesday (played by the appealingly morose Christina Ricci) begin to suspect that Uncle Fester is acting a little too "normal" to be the real Fester.
