I saw the 1st and 2nd movies,and they didn't grow old. I have not see the 60's serie though.
We saw most of those early shows on b&w TV... the original characters were great.. classic shows..
No other actress was as sexy as Morticia than Carolyn Jones ... none.. no debate, it's absolute.
Edit: darn...gif doesn't work...oh well...
Christina Ricci as Wednesday is brilliant. The 60s show is good but does rely on recurring jokes in each episode.
I agree. She was fantastic. Even as a little kid watching back in the 60's I could see she was something special.
Angelica Houston was pretty good in her own way in the first movie, but yeah she's not a patch on Carolyn Jones.
It was a real change from the usual working class family type comedies... shouting matches over the kitchen table...
Gomez didn't need to go off each day to a job, they didn't stress about much... just carried on with their "normal" lives... and normal people flipped out at their normal...
most of us kids would have loved to live in that house... or have one in our street to spook us out.....
Both of those movies are excellent and the tv show too, although like any show from that era it's dated and kind of repetitive if you watch more than a handful of episodes. The first movie was one of the only times I've witnessed applause at a local cinema.
Loved them and the munsters.
Campy..but fun. And ya, a lot of the same schtick
but it worked.
The movies were fun but not something I readily re-watch. I grew up with both Munsters and the OG series, and slightly preferred the Addams, mainly because I was slightly crushing on Morticia at that time..
Ye. The Adam's Family brings back memories of my youth, too. That was a fun series to watch; the interactions between the family members and "outsiders" was hilarious!
Wednesday Addams could be my daughter .
One of the funniest things from the old series (in my opinion) was when Gomez (the brilliant John Astin) found a safe he’d forgotten was in the wall of the mansion...he hadn’t opened it in years, but spun the dial, opened the door, and said, “Ah! I’ve been looking for that!”
...and pulled out an already-lit cigar, started puffing away.
The absurdity of those old series—the Munsters and Green Acres, too—is hilarious. Good, clean comedy.
My daughter went to a costume party as Wednesday—she walked around with a deadpan expression and a single red helium balloon, and never broke character...she won first prize, and even stayed in character when she got on-mic and said, “This is the happiest day of my life. I hate you all for making it that way.”
well the actors in the movies were really good. Especially the kids. And Christopher Lloyd is the icing on the cake.
I had to admit i was thinking A. Huston was really pretty in the movies. I will have to check the serie.
One of my favorite scenes from the Movie versions
was the kids putting on Thanksgiving at summer camp.
loved the old series and the films.carolyn, whoa baby!
I’m more of a Munsters guy, but Addams Family is pretty good too, I still watch the movies from time to time
They did a 3rd t.v movie/straight to vhs of the Addams family that wasn’t as good
On t.v here they were playing the old series for a while, I wish they’d put it back on
I’m definitely a bigger fan of the TV series than the movies.
Also a Munsters fan as well.
Though the shows have similarities, there are very very different.
Herman Munster was a working class every-man who was the head of an average all American family, who happened to be monsters, Marilyn Munster notwithstanding.
The Addams Family were rich weirdos who’s free time was spent with their hobbies, when they aren’t ruining people’s lives by trying to be helpful.
my favorite scene from either movie.
