Trivia

The mentioning of Debbie's axe-murder of her second husband (and Grandmama's nostalgic sigh when she sees the slide) is a reference to the Addams family's having many ancestors and past cronies who were infamous serial killers, such as Zodiac, The Axeman, Jack the Ripper, et cetera. Wednesday and Pugsley's geeky summer camp pal (David Krumholtz) has a card collection of serial killers. See more »

Goofs

When Wednesday, Pugsley and Joel are taken to a cabin for punishment, they are to watch various videos, such as "Bambi". Although Wednesday is quite unmoved and tells Joel they will escape, Joel says; "But it's Disney!". However the next shot, showing the outside of the cabin, is overlaid with the soundtrack from "The Sound of Music" and "Annie", which were released by 20th Century Fox and Columbia respectively, not Disney. However, two of the three movies titles the camp counselors say are Disney movies ("Bambi" and "The Little Mermaid"), so it is reasonable for Joel to anticipate watching Disney movies. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Wednesday: [giving a funeral to a cat in a shoe-box] Come, sorrow; we welcome thee. Let us join in grief, rejoice in despair, and honor the fortunate dead.
Grandma: Dearly beloved...
Wednesday: [the cat mews and Wednesday shakes the box] Shh! Quiet!
Grandma: [starts piling dirt on the box]

Alternate Versions

When Joel first enters the Harmony Hut to join Wednesday and Pugsley, after Gary takes his book away, he looks around and shrieks in horror to see a poster of Michael Jackson on the far wall. This part has been removed from some TV broadcasts. See more »

An improvement on the original film
19 October 2002 | by sorannoSee all my reviews

Almost everybody who was in the original "The Addams Family" returns to reprise their roles in this sequel which is actually better than the first film. The laughs come at a faster and better pace and Joan Cusack makes a delightfully sinister villain who masquerades as a nanny, marries Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd), and wants to get her hands on the Addams Family riches. It's up too all of the Addams along with new arrival Baby Pubert to stop her. Thing and Cousin Itt are also along for the ride once again.
