The Addams Family is a computer animated comedy film based on the comics of the same name by Charles Addams. Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan, the film tells the origin story of the eccentric Addams clan as they move into their iconic haunted house in New Jersey and get caught up in a rivalry with the hostile neighbors of the nearby community Assimilation.

Gomez Addams, voiced by Oscar Isaac, is the wildly passionate patriarch of the family who deeply loves his wife Morticia, voiced by Charlize Theron. Together they have two children - their solemn daughter Wednesday, voiced by Chloë Grace Moretz, and mischievous son Pugsley, voiced by Finn Wolfhard. The rest of the clan includes brilliant Uncle Fester, voiced by Nick Kroll, Grandmama, voiced by Bette Midler, their butler Lurch, and Thing, a hand that crawls around on its own.

When Gomez and Morticia decide to move their family to New Jersey from the dreary location they were previously living in, they buy a dilapidated mansion in the woods and fix it up into the ultimate haunted house, installing traps, secret passages, a graveyard, and more. This draws the ire of reality TV host Margaux Needler, voiced by Allison Janney, who lives in the idyllic planned community Assimilation near the Addams' new home. Viewing the Addams' love of the macabre as a threat to her neighborhood's perfect image, Margaux tries various schemes to get rid of them.

Meanwhile, Wednesday Addams struggles to fit in and connect with people, even her own family, as she feels like an outsider. When she meets Parker, a local boy, she begins to develop her first real friendship. However, this friendship is tested when Parker's mother turns out to be Margaux, leading Wednesday to question where her loyalties truly lie.

The Addams Family embraces the unknown and finds joy in the mysterious, providing a stark contrast to the shallowness and artificiality of Assimilation. As they face pressure to conform from their neighbors, the Addamses must stay true to themselves and what makes their family so special. Ultimately, the film is an ode to celebrating your own uniqueness and not being afraid to stand out. With stunning animation, a talented voice cast, and no shortage of morbid humor and charm, The Addams Family brings a fresh perspective to the iconic clan.

The Addams Family is a 2019 kids & family movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 27 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.8 and a MetaScore of 46.
