The Addams Family
Movie Quote Quiz

Pugsley: Are they dead?
Wednesday: Does it matter?

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

Gomez: Have no fear. The courts will decide. They say a man who represents himself has a fool for a client. Well, with God as my witness, I am that fool.

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.

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

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.
