ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES (1993) **

This mediocre sequel is better than the first, but it still ain’t all that great.  Joan Cusack plays a scheming nanny out to steal Uncle Fester’s (Christopher Lloyd) money.  Wednesday (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) are sent to summer camp and have the best scenes (again).  Their Thanksgiving play is just as funny as their Hamlet play in the first movie.  The film has some funny gags but is hampered by a lame plot and idiotic ending.  Angelica Huston and Raul Julia return as Morticia and Gomez, and Christine Baranski and Peter MacNichol are funny as the camp counselors.
