Family guide to new movie releases

Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service on

Published in Parenting News


Rated PG for macabre and rude humor, violence and language.

What it’s about: A sequel to the 2019 animated feature that updated the classic Addams Family cartoons for a new younger audience. This time, the Addams Family hits the road!

The kid attractor factor: The animation, the voices, the gently spooky humor.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Maybe you feel different from your family, and that's okay. It doesn't mean they're not your family anyway.

Violence: Some kaiju-style monster fighting and other macabre happenings


Language: No swearing, just some mildly rude jokes

Sex: Some flirting and discussion of picking up women. Plus Gomez and Morticia are always smitten.

Drugs: Snoop Dogg voices Cousin It — there are a few veiled references to reefer.

Parents’ advisory: A cute animated film for the whole family in time for spooky season.
