Is ‘Addams Family Values’ on Netflix? Here’s How to Watch
Everyone knows and loves the Addams family, and few could forget the hit movie, Addams Family Values, featuring all of the infamous characters we’ve grown to adore. While a new reboot will hit Netflix in the future, is the old Addams Family movie available on the platform as well? Here’s what we know.
When did ‘Addams Family Values’ come out?
There have been multiple iterations of The Addams Family over the years, and the 1991 film brought the characters from the ’60s TV show back into the spotlight. Then, the 1991 cast was brought back with Addams Family Values. Addams Family Values was released in 1993, and The Hollywood Reporter reminds us it came out just before Thanksgiving.
The 1993 film centered around Gomez Addams (played by Raul Julia) and Morticia Addams (played by Anjelica Huston) as they welcome a new baby boy into the family. Unfortunately, Wednesday Addams (played by Christina Ricci) and Pugsley Addams (played by Jimmy Workman) aren’t pleased. The kids do their best to get rid of the baby, and dark, comedic antics ensue.
The Hollywood Reporter noted the film was a hit with critics and audiences, but it wasn’t a box office success. It earned just $48.9 million, which is $140 million less than the original film in 1991. But it’s forever remembered as an iconic slice of fun and mayhem for fans.
