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.
Trivia: The man playing Joel Glicker's father is Barry Sonnenfeld, the film's director.
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.
Trivia: The baby's name, "Pubert," was actually the original intended name for Pugsley when the comic was turned into a sitcom in the 1960's. Comic creator Charles Addams pitched the name, but it was rejected as it sounds like a number of other words including "puberty" and "pubic." (Which were quite taboo at the time.) The name was finally used thirty years later in this movie for the Addams new baby.
Debbie: Isn't he a lady killer?
Gomez Addams: Acquitted.
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?
Question: I'm just curious but is it possible to actually kill a member of the Addams family? Fester survives both the bathtub electrocution and the bomb explosion, Pubert can stop the guillotine blade with his bare hand, and in the first film Pugsley willingly lets Wednesday electrocute him with no apparent ill-effects.
