About ‘The Addams Family 1991’
Expounding the misadventures of the spectacularly macabre Addams gens, the film is designed on the characters from the cartoonist Charles Addams and the 1964 TV series produced by David Levy. This uncanny and inky comedy movie ‘The Addams Family 1991’ was the big-screen debut of Director Barry Sonnenfeld.
The Addams Family was released to great box office success in the late fall of 1991. A follow-up sequel was released two years later, entitled The Addams Family Values (which is currently airing on Netflix).
‘The Addams Family 1991’ Movie Plot
‘The Addams Family 1991’ movie focuses on an odd, grotesque, blue-blooded family who reconnects with what they believe to be a long-lost relative, Gomez's brother Fester Addams, who is actually the adopted son of a loan shark planning to swindle the Addams clan out of its stupendous wealth and fortune.
Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) reappears after 25 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 unusually “normal” behavior. Could this Fester be a hoax and part of an evil plan to raid the Addams fortune?”
