Addams Family Values

Pubert is the latest addition to the Addams family and, to prevent sibling rivalry escalating to fratricide, Wednesday and Pugsley are shipped off to summer camp and a nanny is hired. Debbie Jellinsky (Cusack) is great with wrinkling baldies, which makes her the perfect nanny for Pubert and the unlikely wife of Uncle Fester. The question is..."Is she grave-digging or gold-digging?"

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

Trivia: A third film in the series was planned after the previous film became a huge hit with audiences. Unfortunately, this sequel only managed to pull in about half of the original's box-office in domestic markets, and shortly after release co-star Raul Julia became seriously ill and passed away after suffering from a stroke. As a result of these two developments, the third film was cancelled and instead, children's media company Saban later "rebooted" the series with the film "The Addams Family Reunion" and a television series entitled "The New Addams Family." Though "Addams Family Reunion" is often cited as the "third" film in the series, it actually has no connection to the plot of the prior films and was produced and distributed by a different studio.

Question: Why does the boy scream like a maniac when he spots the Michael Jackson poster on the wall?

Carl Missouri

Answer: If memory serves, it's a poster for Heal the World? I think he probably screams because this song was WAY over-played on radio stations at the time! It certainly was in the UK where I am from so I imagine in America it was over-played so much more.

Chosen answer: Not only is it a reference to Jackson's general scary weirdness, but also his alleged pedophilia (child molestation), causing the boy to react in fear.

Impossible, the first pedophilia accusations were made just a few months before the movie came out.
