Synopsis / Plot
The kooky and spooky Addams family, stars of cartoons and TV, are here in their feature-film premiere. A swindling lawyer attempts to get his hands on the family fortunes by planting an impostor in their midst. As the fiend (Christopher Lloyd) who claims to be their long-lost Uncle Fester attempts to find the location of the hidden vault, Morticia (Anjelica Huston) and Gomez (Raul Julia) plan a fete that will wake the dead, and only Thing and Wednesday (played by the appealingly morose Christina Ricci) begin to suspect that Uncle Fester is acting a little too "normal" to be the real Fester.
