Garbage

Saw with my 10 year old daughter and we were both left wishing for that 2 hours of our lives back. It was so poorly written and for such a cliche story line, it’s hard to imagine that at the same time, it made no sense. I get that it’s the Addams Family, but it was so depressing and the jokes failed to add any buoyancy to Wednesday’s trademark negativity. And to echo another parent, the movie makers failed to acknowledge that there are ACTUALLY child adoptees that may watch this and be made to feel terrible. There is a scene that parodies the pig blood prom from Carrie. Red paint spills on a bunch of little girls and they are all covered in “blood” running around. Disturbing especially since kids won’t even pick up on the reference. Anyway , find a better movie. We recently enjoyed Nim’s Island.

Too much violence

There is strong language and violence. After your child watches this they will want to rob banks, join the mafia, drink sprite in alleyways, learn karate at the cobra kai dojo, summon Pinocchio at 3am, and pee. If your children experiences any of these affects, make sure they play Garfield gets Real the game before it is to late.
