Other mistake: When Gomez begins to flip through his desk calendar, we see that "today" is Thursday, March 28, 1991. He then turns to the date of the "next quarter". The left hand page shows Thursday, August 8, but the right hand page shows Tuesday, September 9. (00:11:15)

Continuity mistake: When Thing is using sign language to tell Gomez that Morticia is in danger, there's a blue coffee mug sitting on the table (to Thing's immediate right) that vanishes every time the camera angle reverses. (01:25:00)

Revealing mistake: During the Mamoshka dance, right when Gomez throws the knife high in the air (the one that lands in Fester's mouth), the camera goes to a wide shot when the knife is in the air, and you can plainly see that the jugglers are Fester and Gomez's stunts.

Deliberate mistake: At the beginning, the carolers are on the porch singing. The camera never pans, so this means that the carolers are facing away from the house (towards Gate) - seems rather odd. The only reasons for this would have been to make the clean camera move through the crowd and up the house.

Continuity mistake: When Thing frightens Fester in bed, the candles that Fester is holding instantly disappear from his hand and his bedside table.

Factual error: At the end of the Mamushka, Fester catches the final knife down his throat. With the length of the blade and the angle at which the knife is in his mouth, the point of the knife should be coming out the back of his head.

Continuity mistake: As they go down the slide, Gomez is in front of Fester. At one point, they change positions for a moment.

Continuity mistake: When Fester comes down to the party and the shot cuts to everyone stopping dancing when Morticia calls for their attention, close to the center of the room is a woman with very frizzy orange hair dancing with a man with lots of facial hair. When the shot cuts back to Fester and Morticia, this couple is right behind Fester near the door to the hall.

Gomez Addams: [admiring Mortisha, who is sleeping.] Look at her. I would die for her. I would kill for her. Either way, what bliss!

Trivia: The part of Morticia was originally offered to Cher, who passed because she felt that "The Addams Family" wouldn't do enough to boost her slumping (at least at the time) film career.

Question: How did Gomez and Fester Addams get back up to the first floor from the vault? All they enter was the slides.

Answer: No doubt the Addams house had one of many secret, confusing passageways to get to the higher floors (and other parts of the house) from the vault that the viewer obviously is not privy to.
