Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie takes the original Addams Family cast to its logical extreme -- and that means more violence (often involving newborn Pubert), more sexual innuendo, worse language and a lot of themes that are just too much for kids. Even so, the dialogue remains extremely witty.

Sexual Content

A voluptuous villain has explicit sexual designs on Uncle Fester; seduction and discussions of virginity.

Violence

Again, much more than in the first movie -- or perhaps it just feels more problematic, since a baby is often the intended victim.

Language

More than in the first movie- -- frequent mild language.

Social Behavior

Despite their strange clothes and quirky behavior the Addams family still love each other and that isn't diminished by all the weirdness. It also shows the importance of being true to yourself and never conforming to fit in with others.
