IMDb profile

The Addams Family Reunion was the third movie of The Addams Family series, released in 1998. However, most members of the cast did not return to this direct-to-video installment; Raul Julia had died, Angelica Huston and Christopher Lloyd declined,and Christina Ricci and Jimmy Workman at the ages of 18 were considered too old to play the children. In the end only Carel Struycken and Christopher Hart reprised their roles. Ed Begley, Jr stars as the villain of the story, Dr. Philip Adams, a mean doctor who tries to poison his father (Ray Walston) and steal his fortune. In one of the film's most memorable scenes, Dr. Philip challenges Gomez in, darts, pingpong, and Tennis. Of course, Gomez proves to be unbeatable in all sports.

Plot

Discovering his grandparents have developed "Waltzhiemer's Disease", Gomez, knowing his family tree is enormous, organises a family reunion in the hope of finding a cure from unknown relatives. Unfortunately, the company who arranged the reunion misspells his surname and reunites him with the Adams family instead. Philip Adams (played by Ed Begley Jr.) is a scheaming doctor, who plans to poison his father and re-arrange his will. Many things happens at the resort where the reunion takes place. Gomez hopes that Dr. Adams can cure his grandparents, and Morticia spends time with the women. Fester and Thing do theire best to capture Butcher, a mutated puppy who feeds on human hair, and Puglsey falls in love with a girl named Gina. A family name, or surname, is that part of a persons name that indicates to what family he or she belongs. ...


Some fans felt that the sequel lacked the macabre humour of the previous films; others really liked it. Instead of the macabre humor of the two first movies, it had a humor more like the original series. This is also because this film was released by Fox under the banner of the Fox Family, and as such trying to make it more family oriented. As of 2007, there are no plans for a fourth film. So far the film is only available on VHS and has not had a DVD release, making it more difficult to find. Look up humour in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Trivia

  • This film conspicuously lacks Pubert from the second film, Addams Family Values. Some fans have reasoned that this takes place after the first film but before the second.
  • This movie shed some light on Lurch's family history, Gomez stated that Lurch was not a full Addams, he is also part Morcowski, part Coen, part Vergasso, part Murtagh, and part Torrence. Morticia said that she wasn't sure of where Lurch's kidneys came from. Gomez said that Lurch had the heart of an Addams. This clearly alludes to the fact that Lurch is some kind of Frankenstein monster; in the Addams Family books he is often described as "an experiment that Baron Frankenstein forgot".
  • When Lurch retrieves the woman from the pool, it is a play on Frankenstein.
  • Though they were at a wrong reunion, Pugsley had a crush on a girl that to his knowledge was related to him.
  • This movie has (just like the two previous movies) a dancenumber, Gomez and Morticia dances a Mambo (dance).
  • Unlike the other two films, which were distributed by Paramount Pictures, It was distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures instead.
