This delightful follow-up to The Addams Family is blessed with an even blacker vein of humour than the original. Gomez and Morticia (Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston) have a new baby, much to the displeasure of their other children (Christina Ricci and Jimmy Workman), while Fester has fallen under the spell of the youngster's scheming black widow nanny (Joan Cusack). Once again, the playing is faultless, but it is Ricci who effortlessly steals the show, whether trying to bump off her new sibling or creating havoc at an all-American summer camp. The sets are wonderful, the cinematography exquisite and Barry Sonnenfeld's direction is exhilarating. The perfect antidote to more traditional, sentimental family fare.


Spooky couple Gomez and Morticia hire a nanny to look after their new baby son - and stop him suffering an early death at the hands of his jealous elder siblings. Romance soon blossoms between the new childminder and Uncle Fester, but he does not realise she is planning to kill him once she has got hold of the family fortune. Comedy sequel, starring Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christopher Lloyd, Christina Ricci and Joan Cusack.
