The Addams Family

Revealing mistake: In the part in the motel where THING is doing morse code on the table to Gomez you can see the cut-out in the table where the guy's hand is sticking through the table.

Revealing mistake: The first time we see Thing running down the hallway at the start of the film, the bluescreen is visible at the top of the screen; where the wrist area begins.

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 man juggling with Fester isn't Raul Julia, but his stunt double.

Continuity mistake: The chutes that Wednesday and Pugsley use changes positions when Fester chases Wednesday.

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."
