It's the rare sequel that is better than its original, and yet Addams Family Values qualifies.

A screenplay by Paul Rudnick that specialises in delightfully arch, subversive humour.

There's plenty happening in this far superior sequel.

Wittier and more consistent than the first Addams Family movie.

You've got to respect a comedy that makes light of arson, torture, and murder in these squeamish times.

Like the first movie (but even more so) the plot is mere conduit for Addams one-liners.

The cast is uniformly wonderful, with young Ricci providing a depth to her character well beyond her years.

An equally silly but funnier sequel, which has something more resembling a plot than its predecessor.

Uneven as it is, Addams Family Values is considerably more enjoyable than its predecessor.
