The Addams Family 2 – Movie Quotes and Positive Lessons

The Addams Family 2, the new MGM animated film and sequel of The Addams Family is now available and you might be wondering if it’s too scary or safe for kids, and whether it teaches positive lessons. I compiled the Addams Family 2 movie quotes and positive lessons for you, and I’ll be providing the official mom review.

Everyone’s favorite spooky family is back in the animated comedy sequel, The Addams Family 2. In this all-new movie, we find Morticia and Gomez distraught that their children are growing up, skipping family dinners, and totally consumed with “scream time.” Relatable?

To reclaim their bond they decide to cram Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, and the crew into their haunted camper ( which boasts a TLK2TH licensce plate) and hit the road for one last miserable family vacation.

Their adventure across the U.S. takes them out of their element and into hilarious run-ins with their iconic cousin, It, as well as many new kooky characters. What could possibly go wrong?

The Addams Family 2, Cast And Crew

The Addams Family 2 was directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon, and it’s based on characters by Charles Addams.

With a screenplay by Dan Hernandez & Benji Samit and Ben Queen and Susanna Fogel and a story by Dan Hernandez & Benji Samit.

Produced by Gail Berman, p.g.a., Conrad Vernon, p.g.a., Danielle Sterling, p.g.a., Alison O’Brien, p.g.a. and with executive producers Kevin Miserocchi, Jonathan Glickman, Cassidy Lange, Andrew Mittman, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth.

The voice cast includes Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Kroll, Javon ‘Wanna’ Walton, Wallace Shawn, with Snoop Dogg as ‘IT’, with Bette Midler and Bill Hader.

What Moms Need To Know about The Addams Family 2 Movie

The Addams Family 2 has a PG rating for macabre and rude humor, cartoon violence, and language. It’s not your typical family movie, and that is expected from this franchise.

Now, you know I’m not very fond of scary themes. Fear is one of the lowest vibrations there is, while laughter is expansive.

However, The Addams Family 2 is very funny. If you have a dark humor and so does your child, then this is your movie.

As far as danger and violence, there are explosions, fighting, red paint, a battle, strange creatures, and many characters are hurt or held captive.

Just like in the original, Wednesday’s (voiced by Chloë Grace Moretz) desires and tries to harm her brother Pugsley (Javon “Wanna” Walton), and the intensity was turned up in this sequel.

When it comes to language, you can expect bullying, insult words like “weirdo” and “freak” and you can see some other terms in que Family Addams quotes I compiled for you below.

As far as adult content, there is a joke about “tentacles” that seems to be a substitute to “testicles,” and there’s dating advice provided by Uncle Fester (Nick Kroll) and subsequent pick up lines and flirting. Adult characters drink in at least two scenes.

The very affectionate and suggestive relationship between Gomez (Oscar Isaac) and Morticia (Charlize Theron) as a married couple continues to play out in The Addams Family 2 as it did in the first installment.

Positive Lessons from The Addams Family 2

The Addams Family 2 was entertaining and you will like it if you’re an Addams Family fan; however, you can still find lots of positive lessons in this movie that you can discuss with the children.

The movie depicts what can happen when we assume instead of clearly communicating and it has a message of the true meaning of family and unconditional love.

My daughters and I had several discussions after this movie about the suggestive material, what jokes were cruel, what movie quotes we enjoyed, and how our family is different and similar to The Addams Family.

I think this last piece is very important because The Addams have a strong set of identities and they are distinct and unique as a family – and they own it wherever they go.

What does it mean to be a Fernandez? If they were going to make a movie called The Fernandez Family and we were starring in it, what would it be about? (Replace with your family name)

What qualities, traits, and virtues are displayed by most of the members of our family?

What are some things that make each member different and special?
