WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In the kooky world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with the same challenges faced by any other family, including the spookiest nightmare faced by every family: the Addams kids growing up. The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday is now an 18-year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with a boy from a normal Ohio family and to make matters worse, she has invited the boy's family to the Addams' home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they've managed to avoid for generations: change!
