A Fanfic Review of The Addams Family
If you’re a fan of The Addams Family, you’re probably familiar with Wednesday. She’s the older of the two children of Morticia and Gomez. Her twin is Thursday. And she’s a shy girl. But she’s also very curious.
During Halloween in August, Wednesday gets an invitation to participate in a contest. It’s an experiment. However, it goes badly. So the students cast a spell. They cast it as a prank. They’re told they will receive a prize. What they don’t know is that the spell will make them turn into normal people for three to four days. This means that Wednesday has to deal with being a “Normal” Addams.
In the meantime, Thing appears out of different boxes in the same room. He’s always there to help, but he speaks in rapid gibberish. At times, he wears a feather duster. Sometimes he sits in the living room fireplace.
While Thursday isn’t totally sure who Uncle Fester is, she’s curious about him. That’s why she asks for him to do something once again. When she does, he helps her dance. But afterward, he’s locked up in his own body.
Wednesday is not so happy with her new life. She’s not quite sure how she’s supposed to fit in. Plus, she’s not so sure she likes being a “Normal” Addams. Luckily, she has a few friends, including her cousin, Itt.
As it turns out, Thing isn’t the only character to have an unusual connection to the Addams family. Their pet lion, Kitty Kat, is also connected. Since the cat’s father was believed to have eaten Dr. Mbogo’s father, it’s unlikely that Kitty Kat will get any help from him.
Another character is Lurch, a butler and servant for the Addams family. He’s also very tall, wearing a bowler hat. In addition, he has a habit of removing the hats of the male visitors. Eventually, he responds to the banging knight armor.
Gomez Addams is a spook in the 1960s. His daughter, Bella, is a would-be chef. There’s also a boy named Alex, who is destined to become a demon lord of sin called LUST.
Meanwhile, a ragtag Hale pack is on the run. The distant family takes in the ragtag pack. Ultimately, they’ll all find a way to live again.
Aside from the main characters, there are also plenty of cameos. In addition to Lily Munster and Captain Daniel Gregg, there’s also Wadsworth from the TV show Clue. The film also features Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Fester.
Also in the movie, you’ll find some funny quotes. For example, Morticia’s painting was lampooned in several episodes, and the legal system was lampooned in the episode “The Addams Family in Court”.
