The Addams Family DVD|
Director Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black) brings his distinctly cartoonish sensibility to this feature film version of the old Charles Addams comic strip. Anjelica Huston was born to play Morticia Addams, matriarch of the ghoulish Addams clan, while the late Raul Julia is a very agreeable, lusty Gomez. But it's Christina Ricci who arguably steals the show as their stone-faced daughter, Wednesday. As is often the problem with adaptations of comics or television shows, somehow an original story has to be implemented that doesn't clutter things up. But clutter is an issue here as the script gets tangled on a lame plot concerning efforts to steal the Addams' house and fortune. Still, it's fun to see an ideal cast reanimate an old favourite. --Tom Keoghfrom£3.59 | RRP:

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play Looking for something creepy spooky kooky and altogether ooky? When long-lost Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) reappears after twenty-five years in the Bermuda Triangle Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) plan a celebration to wake the dead But Wednesday (Christina Ricci) barely has time to warm up her electric chair before Thing points out Fester’s uncharacteristically “normal” behaviour Could this Fester be a fake part of a diabolical scheme to raid the Addams fortune?
Fusing together the old New Yorker cartoons and the 1960s sitcom, this film pits the weird Addams family against a crooked lawyer who finds someone to impersonate long-lost Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd), in an attempt to steal the family fortune. While Gomez (Raul Julia) welcomes Fester into the household, his daughter Wednesday (Christina Ricci) soon becomes suspicious of her new-found uncle.
