What defines a loving family? Is is the rosy-cheeked cheery-faced privileged bullies at Camp Chippewa, or is it The Addams Family?
Pause for thought.
The answer is, and always will be, The Addams Family's honest depiction of love and acceptance. This is not only on full display once again in Addams Family Values, but includes a clear message from writer Paul Rudnick on America's republican views on "family values", and how that is always code for exclusion and hatred.
Addams Family Values is timeless; a perfect Thanksgiving movie, a perfect Halloween movie, and the perfect depiction of a familial love that can be any race, any sexuality, any belief and any gender. And it adds an iconic Joan Cusack performance to the mix, just in case you were wanting more.
"But Debbie... PASTELS?"
I would love to hear your thoughts on Addams Family Values !
