The Addams Family is not your typical family: they take delight in most of the things that "normal" people would be terrified of. Gomez Adams is an extremely wealthy man, and is able to ... See full summary »
After a single, career-minded woman is left on her own to give birth to the child of a married man, she finds a new romantic chance in a cab driver. Meanwhile, the point-of-view of the newborn boy is narrated through voice-over.
When an adorable baby boy is added to the Addams household, Wednesday and Pugsley do not hate the baby, they just aren't necessarily excited about his existence. Ok, yeah they do hate the baby. So Wednesday and Pugsley must get rid of the new addition one way or another. Meanwhile a new nanny is added to the household who overtakes Fester. The Addams must stop the nanny, but how?
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 »

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 »
This film is one of those rare gems, a sequel that is as good as, or even better than the original.
Christina Ricci fulfills all the promise that she showed in the first film, as she really steals the film from her more established co-stars.
The scenes at camp produce some of the best one-liners, and it is great to see an American film that is self-mocking about its image concious rich societies. Lines from Ricci like " Is that your overbite?" and "When they woke up all their old noses had grown back!" are superb and will be much loved in the UK, as it is how much of the States is perceived over here.
Also, Amanda in this movie, is also played by the same girl who played the Girl Scout in the first movie.
Add a little bit of romance between Wednesday and another kid at the camp and you have something for everyone in this wonderfully funny and worryingly endearing movie.
