Addams Family Values

Continuity mistake: When Wednesday and Pugsley are playing with the guillotine, Wednesday has a scroll in her hands, which she then rolls up. The shot changes and you can still see the rolled up scroll in her hands. However, the shot then changes again and you can now see Wednesday rolling up the already rolled up scroll.

Plot hole: It seems unlikely that Debbie would have managed to take the photographs of her husbands' murders she shows the Addams family at the end, especially considering the angle of the shot of the surgeon. He's not looking at the cam so she wasn't holding it.

Continuity mistake: The scarf that Debbie wears while she is driving disappears and reappears throughout the scene.

Continuity mistake: When Carol Kane is putting the skull into Joan Cusack's hand, the skull is facing towards Joan, but in the next shot it is facing away from her.

Continuity mistake: In the guillotine scene, right after they cut the watermelon, it stays with its inside pointing up, but in the next shot is put horizontal again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the children are being talked to by the nannies, there is a light in the left hand doorway beside the bed that in one shot appears and then disappears when the doorway is shone again.

Continuity mistake: When Wednesday and Pugsley won't join the group hug, Becky walks over to them, says, "Oh, they're just shy", and places her arm around Wednesday's shoulders. When the shot cuts to just Wednesday and Pugsley, Becky's hand is resting on just Wednesday's left shoulder, but when the shot cuts back to the four people, Becky's arm is once again around both of Wednesday's shoulders.

Other mistake: Toward the end, Pubert escapes the crib and is crawling away from the camera. It can be easily seen that it's an animated puppet due to the even movements. A second later, you see the live baby, and the movements are nothing like a moment before.

Other mistake: Debbie speaks of her first husband, a heart surgeon. Then he couldn't have been attending to the Pope when he had a cold.

Suggested correction: For someone with a serious heart disease, or recovering from surgery, a cold can be deadly. If he was his appointed physician he would be attending in case the heart can't handle it and he needs emergency surgery.

Visible crew/equipment: When evil Debbie Jellinsky is electrocuted, two stunt wires/cables are visible on her shoulders in the first close-up shot.

Revealing mistake: When they first arrive at camp and Joel goes to use his inhalers, the mouthpiece is actually in the storage position rather than the actuation position. The puff sound must have been added in later because the inhaler cannot be activated when it is put together that way. (00:22:20)

Continuity mistake: When Gary and Becky are explaining the jamboree to the campers, the campers' backs are all to the camera. On the left side of the bleachers in the second row, there is a blonde girl with wavy hair, and directly in front of her is Amanda. However, when we see Amanda clapping, there is no one behind her.

Continuity mistake: After Thing rescues Fester, at one point, Thing disappears while driving. Otherwise, he's on the wheel.

More trivia for Addams Family Values

Question: In the very last scene of the movie, we see Christina Ricci and David Krumholtz sitting in the Addams Family graveyard, and Krumholtz is placing flowers at Debbie Jellinski's tombstone, when a full human arm (presumably the late Debbie's) shoots out of the grave and grabs his wrist, sending him into screaming fits. However, Debbie was completely cremated to ash by electricity a few minutes earlier in the film. Nothing left of her but ash, shoes and credit cards. So, whose arm reached out from Debbie's grave?

Charles Austin Miller

Answer: It was a prank Wednesday was pulling on Joel. She mentions she would scare her husband to death and then smiles when Joel starts screaming.

BaconIsMyBFF

Yes, she said she'd scare her husband to death. But it is a very animate human arm that reaches out of the grave, causing me to wonder WHO was in the grave to pull off the prank?

Charles Austin Miller

I mean, if it was just a hand coming out of the grave, I would be satisfied that it was "Thing" taking part in the prank. But it was a whole human forearm (which Thing does not have).

Charles Austin Miller

There's no evidence in the film to answer the question. They never show you who the arm belongs to, and with good reason. It would ruin the joke. This is just one of those questions that can't be definitively answered.

This is also a reference to the end scene of Carrie.

Oliver Baum

Answer: We are never told whose arm it was that came out of the grave.

Answer: It could be Thing (The Addam's disembodied hand).

It couldn't be Thing. It's a whole arm that came out of the ground and Thing only goes to the wrist.
