AND ANOTHER THING ABOUT THE ADDAMS FAMILY MOVIES…. they got the character of morticia addams ALL wrong. she is more serious than gomez, yes, but she isn’t as emotionally distant as they try to portray her as

same with the kiddos. they are outright cruel in the movies. this is not a character change that i appreciate, and i appreciate it less the older i get

the whole addams family is strange and unusual, but they are not cruel. that is a fundamental trait of them that the movies lack. they got gomez alright i suppose, out of all the characters, but everyone else has this modern attitude of mean spiritedness that just totally misses the mark


@shade THANK YOU. I felt so disconnected from this portrayal but I also feel like everyone talks about it like it's the normative version of the concept.
