Most boring garbage I have ever watched.

Now the story is mediocre, it offers you nothing new, and it brings us the repeated lesson that we are all equal and we have to accept it, please I have seen that many times, the villain is the worst, it is boring, it is ridiculous , it is annoying, it really has nothing good and I saw it as a totally unnecessary element in the film, the worst of all is that in the end they let you keep your work despite what you did and it seems that nobody has any problem with that .

Watered down, "safe" and completely bland version of The Addams Family.

It's really boring and don't go here if you expect a good movie.

I enjoyed it quiet a bit.

Overall, The Addams Family is mostly bland and forgettable.

But it was entertaining enough.

Absolute Snore Fest .

Almost everyone knows well The Addams Family original film, it is really entertaining and it is one of those films that passes generation to generation leaving its mark.

It was just worse than boring.

The film is boring, cloudy and cheerless...

Totally enjoyable kids film, ignore the moronic bad reviews .

The animation is dreadfully boring.

I found myself squirming in the theater and even falling asleep.

Enjoyable with some good adult humor.

Please, if you are reading this, maybe sitting on the fence, save your money for something else.

Entertaining .

Entertaining .

The plot is slow and unbearable!

However, it is an enjoyable time waster for the family.

Awful waste of time and the source material.

The family at the center clearly care for each other, but because of the darkness in the humor, it rarely comes off as saccharine, providing inoffensive yet entertaining October fun that'll really make you screa-um.

It Was REALLY Boring, I Went To Watch This With My Sister And My Dad And We Hated It And Most Of The Time It Felt Like The Movie Was Trying To Be Cool With The Kids, Also I Slept For Like 20 Minutes While I Was Watching The Movie.

I fell asleep.

Turns out that this animated movie was actually rather entertaining.

Not only a complete disgrace to the Addams Family, but the package itself is ugly, unfunny and an absolute bore.

This 2019 "The Addams Family" CGI animated movie is definitely well worth watching, regardless of if you are familiar with the family or not.

It's boring and just don't go here.

I just simply walked out

Borderline unwatchable .

The jokes were hit or miss (missing a great deal more than they hit) and was completely predictable and dull.

The plot was basic, predictable, and nothing to rave about.

However time for my final negative unfortunately the film had very dull and slow pacing for a large majority of the run time.

The animation was fine but the script was thin, everything was completely predictable, and all of the humor had been done better somewhere else.

It's entertaining.

Yes what they did around the house was funny and strange at first but it got fairly repetitive with the parents.

Unbelievable boring.

The plot was so boring and lame, I just couldn't finish the movie, This was NOTHING like the cartoon or the 90's Movies.

Lurch becomes an awesome character in this movie Sadly, the rest os just plain boring.

Usually we leave the theater with them chatting about what they just saw.

In a movie where everything else is bland and washed of originality seeing random characters who looks that gross and greasy is nothing less than a shock.

I fell asleep twice .

Despite this, I found the film engaging, fun, and funny.

It was confusing, I'm not sure if she stayed with them or whatever, it wasn't specified.

With dull animation.

But to add, my son only found it remotely entertaining.

I fell asleep .

Just plain boring.

Funny and Entertaining .

however, it was only a medicore start and that's not a good film, the 2019 animated adaptation of the Addams Family is just another dull, bland, cliched, cheap looking and not very funny animated kids film, it does ha be okay animation, a few chuckles here and there and I do like a few characters and the voice acting is great!

I found the details to be stunning, atmosphere engaging, characters ludicrous and the plot alluring.

The Addams Family is entertaining, and perfect to be watched with your family.

How anybody could attempt another mining of the rich Addams Family comic vein and come up with something this boring and pathetic is beyond me.

The normal people, especially villainous home renovator Margaux Needler (Allison Janney), are pretty predictable and uninteresting.

Entertaining enough .

From the start, the movie captures the audience with a creepy, yet, fun and entertaining vibe.

My wife fell asleep and both kids kept asking and poking holes in the storyline on the way home.

Boring .

Nothing special, but enjoyable.

I loved Adams family but this movie version is very boring.

Still have one boring post credit scene!

This movie is enjoyable and very funny, my wife laughed out loud actually which isn't typical for her.

absolutely worst movie ever .

Unimpressive animation and a boring reboot.

Plot is bland, very similar to many other kid movies.

The script and direction lacked in making this film worth watching.

Save your money .

Instead it is what it is - a dull, generic affair which is put to shame on almost all fronts by something like Hotel Transylvania - in its third outing!

Entertaining and quite enjoyable .

Trying hard, dying slow .

We find our fiendish friends learning how to assimilate into their new neighborhood, only to experience some predictable pushback from the status quo.

Don't waste your time

I enjoyed it and would buy it on DVD.

Fell asleep 10 minutes before the end .

Especially one as bland and sterile as this.

the misunderstood monsters with predictable parent-child rifts.

"The Addams Family" is a funny and entertaining movie for the family.

, however the charm is completely lacking and overall just plain boring.

Cliche, contrived garbage .

Daughter Wednesday is bored of the solitude she is confined to and is determined to venture out beyond the gates of her family's mansion.

It's so boring.

The Addams Family is a boring and dull reboot to the Addams Family movies.

boring .

It was boring and it had way too much boomer humor for me or my sister to enjoy it.

I really enjoyed it.

However, there's some unexpected social critiques here laying a foundation for the spooky schtick.

This is definitely a one time watch, I don't know why people are very negative these days, bashing a film makes them feel superior about themselves, I enjoyed it for what it is.

Too boring.

It mix funny and creepy in a creative way and it delivers a nice and enjoyable plot.

Boring and outdated humor.

But don't waste your time on this movie if you're over the age of 11.

The gags were all over the place, no cohesive plot and worst of all, it didn't engage either the kids or the adults with the jokes.

They are all dull and forgettable.

This was actually very enjoyable...

, however it suffers from a poorly executed story, with not very effective humour, bland, ugly and unprofessional animation, characters that offer very little and are forgettable, that and Snoop Dogg as Cousin It is just there for a celebrity camo, if you have a family or kids and if they want to just see something related to Halloween and kills some time with something that the kids will enjoy, this is....

Too boring, for the best parts just look at the trailer.

The movie was kinda predictable and boring.

4 year old,6 year old and mum and dad all really enjoyed it.

My nieces were bored, I showed them the 90s films the night before, which they laughed the whole way through.

No story, utter rubbish do not waste your money my kids wanted to leave after 20mins

Don't waste your time.

A really enjoyable animated movie of the addams family.

As years go by, their son Pugsley is preparing for a family coming of age tradition.

She just bored me as a villain.

Here the weird but lovable family, face some unexpected challenges.

Animation film also can bored!


boring to my 11yo sister .

I went into the theatre expecting a fun and entertaining movie, and I left with an added sense of nostalgia, love, and appreciation for the iconic Addams Family (even though I was never a big fan).

Boring and cliche storyline .

Save your money.

generic and bland.

The movie itself is a bit hard to follow.

Horrible, awful, boring.

A total yawn .

I was willing it to atleast be mildly entertaining but struggled to stay awake let alone enjoy it despite not actually being tired.

It was well-animated, though I am not a huge fan of how they made Gomez look here, I can overlook it because the film, was on the whole, fun, entertaining, and other than a couple elements; very un-PC, which is very refreshing in this current trend to push hyper PC content that seeks to please a select group, and pleases no one.

The characters are entertaining, and the voice acting is decent all around.

Movie started out good, had some funny moments, but as it progresses it turns out to be a regular cliche.

I will say that my kids (12 & 9) enjoyed it though.

I left before the movie even finished because it's literally a waste of time.

Yes it picked up in the final act which i loved but i would of liked them to make the films plot be consistently interesting and entertaining which i am afraid they were not able to do.

It was terribly boring.

For a movie that speaks so proudly about individualism and uniqueness, the Addams Family is a decidedly bland and sanitized children's movie.

Boring re-edit.


Now, some exceptions to my enjoyment of children's films is the new terrible 2018 Grinch, which was so bad I could tell even the children were not entertained and I actually walked out of theater, this coming from an adult whom enjoys children's films.

Plus at the end, the rest of the residents put their prejudices behind them when they realize that The Addams are a family like any other regardless of how they dress or their taste for darker things - die mad that this movie blatantly instilled human decency or as some of the slower people call (P.

And i also did get bored of some of the more key addams characters.

It was a bland, uninspired rehashing of something we all know and love, created for the sole purpose of making money.

I would have enjoyed it if I had it as a kid along with my sister.

This version is angst-y and cliche, Wednesday especially.

Don't waste your money on this one, not even good to see it in DVD.

A large majority of the film was just repeated days at the house which despite there being fun parts to this i got bored in places.

But this movie is so boring!

I found it slow and the story didnt seen to jump out at me.

Even the kids who came to watch it with us were bored and confused, and I can't blame them.

But everyone in my family was bored...

with that said, this is one of the most blandest, lifeless and average looking animated films I have ever seen, the humans look more creepy then the family do, they have that ugly cheap look to them, i get why they look like that but it looks like they are from a different film, like Parker and Margaux's design looks unprofessional, the backgrounds and the town it self look very dull and average, overall?

Clever and entertaining...

The most boring and lame animated "remake" off all time .

Yawn .

Overall, it was cute and I enjoyed it.

I fell asleep and my daughter woke me.

I had low expectations going in, but came out having enjoyed it.

Unfortunately, this movie does not do justice to these characters, this brings us the typical adventure that one of the children wants to explore, there he urges and that his parents do not leave it, blah, blah, blah, I just say that he prefers to keep a quite mediocre and repetitive story, something we have seen many times.

The movie was really uneventful...

It has 2 or 3 funny moment and lot of boring moment they just use stars to we go and see the movie

The animation is excellent, the addams family characters look very similar to the original cartoon panel drawings & the fun & hilarity is in the character, actions & reactions of the family themselves, there's very little plot because after all this is the everyday story of the addams family, thankfully the writers stayed away from adding stupid inane jokes & decided to instead allow the comedy to flow through the story.

And her motivations for going against the addams was bland and poorly executed.

It's genuinely smart, funny and entertaining.

An hour and a half of absolute boredom.

About twenty omitted into the show, I was about ready to leave.

My sister is 11 and she found the film tedious to say the least; halfway through it she asked me if we could leave.

The end was rushed and highly predictable.

Entire film full of boring conversation and overuse scene!

Many of the gags are outside the story arc and some are very contrived.

"The Addams Family" tests it's macabre boundaries as a "family film" and turns out to be quite enjoyable and funny.

wasted 90 minutes for nothing , hoping that something will happen and I really struggled to stay awake in the meantime.

Her monotone voice was a bore.

Even my kid was bored .

I knew they would expand the lore and make it fit into todays world, but what they did made for a boring plot line that just seemed to drag on.

Too many boring conversation and annoying overuse scene!

Fun for kids but they picked wrong actress to play wednesday and it has cliche villain

It was extremely dull.

Big waste of time and money.
