Corrected entry: When Thing tries to use sign language to signal to Gomez that Morticia is in danger, what he spells out is complete gibberish. There are a few Gs, Ns and Es but nothing that resembles an actual word.


Correction: That's the point. Thing is panicking and unable to focus on doing it right.


Corrected entry: In the scene where the THING is holding on the the back of the car, you can see that it's someone with a black sleeve (the hand is very hairy).

Correction: I just watched the scene, and you CANNOT see a black sleeve.

Corrected entry: Margaret escapes from the Chinese finger prison, but in the next scene she's still struggling to free herself.

Correction: Not true...grandmama laughs at her because she got caught in it again after they released her the first time.

Corrected entry: In the Shakespeare play scene you can see thick black hose (feeding fake "blood") along Pugsley's left leg, and the thin hose under Wednesday's left foot, when she slightly slips.

Correction: Of course you can. Within the context of the film, Fester helped them stage the scene, so the hoses you see cannot be labeled an actual movie mistake.

Correction: Look a little closer, it quite is.

Corrected entry: When Tully and Gomez are discussing the business and Gomez goes off to the vault, they have just been sword fighting and Thing puts the sword away. Tully then goes to spy on Gomez. How does Thing not 'see' this? We know he can sense things somehow because he finds the fingertrap, knows where he's going etc. In addition, immediately after, he is in the kitchen pointing out the fingertrap.

Correction: We don't know that Thing was paying attention to what Tully was doing. Tully was supposed to be trusted.

Continuity mistake: During the play, when Pugsley slices Wednesdays throat, there is blood on the front of her shirt. When she turns to face the audience, the front of her shirt is clean.

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

More quotes from The Addams Family

Trivia: The seedy motel sequences were shot at the Wampum Court Motel in Sylmar, CA, a 1950s relic that had definitely seen better days. To enhance the fleabag image, two gaudily-painted signs were added for the film, touting "air conditioning" and the deliberately misspelled "kitchins."

More trivia for The Addams Family

Question: It is revealed at the end of the film that Gordon is in fact the true Fester. However, all the photos and Gomez's home movie show young Fester as being completely bald. Then how did Gordon manage to have a full head of hair which he had to shave off in order to initially pose as Fester?

Answer: Presumably when Fester was lost in the Bermuda Triangle, whatever supernatural forces caused him to lose his memory also made him grow hair. This gets reversed at the end of the movie when he's zapped by lightning, restoring his memories and destroying his hair follicles as well.

Answer: I guess we assume he always shaved his head.
