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?

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

the misunderstood monsters with predictable parent-child rifts.

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

The end was rushed and highly predictable.

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

Just plain boring.

Fell asleep 10 minutes before the end .

Yes, it did have the occasional funny bit which got be laughing but sometimes it was boring.

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


Entertaining enough .

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

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

absolutely worst movie ever .

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

, 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....

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.

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

Big waste of time and money.

Overall, The Addams Family is mostly bland and forgettable.

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

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.

The Addams Family is really enjoyable, because it reminds me of Hotel Transylvania.

Trying hard, dying slow .

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

Nothing special, but enjoyable.

But it was entertaining enough.

Her monotone voice was a bore.

The movie was kinda predictable and boring.

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

It was terribly boring.

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.

Overall, it was cute and I enjoyed it.

Even my kid was bored .

It's so boring.

I really enjoyed it.

Yawn .

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

I fell asleep .


Unbelievable boring.

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

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

Save your money .

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

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.

A total yawn .

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

I enjoyed it and would buy it on DVD.

Entertaining .

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.

It's genuinely smart, funny and entertaining.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Boring re-edit.

The movie itself is a bit hard to follow.

She just bored me as a villain.

generic and bland.

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

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

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!

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.

I just simply walked out

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

It was extremely dull.

Clever and entertaining...

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

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

I fell asleep twice .

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

Don't waste your time.

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

Cliche, contrived garbage .

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

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

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!

The plot is slow and unbearable!

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).

Save your money.

Awful waste of time and the source material.

Especially one as bland and sterile as this.
