QUICK TAKE:
Animated Comedy: A ghoulish couple moves to New Jersey, raises a family of outcasts, and eventually clashes with a nearby master-planned community founded on conformity.
PLOT:
On their wedding somewhere in Eastern Europe, villagers drive Gomez (voice of OSCAR ISAAC) and Morticia Addams (voice of CHARLIZE THERON) from their homeland and force them to relocate to New Jersey. They find refuge in an abandoned asylum on top of a mountain and make it their home, with their loyal pet Thing (as always, a disembodied hand) and the monstrous Lurch (voice of CONRAD VERNON).

Thirteen years pass, and Gomez and Morticia have been blessed -- they would joke, cursed -- with a daughter, the dour Wednesday (voice of CHLOE GRACE MORETZ), and a son, the explosives-loving Pugsley (voice of FINN WOLFHARD). Their mountain hideaway has been shrouded in mist for years thanks to a surrounding moat. But when that moat gets drained by a local developer, suddenly the Addams can see down in the valley and realize they're neighbors with a master-planned community named Assimilation that is all about happy living and conformity.

The community is spearheaded by a cable-TV home improvement celebrity named Margaux Needler (voice of ALLISON JANNEY), who immediately sees the Addams' creepy mansion as an eyesore and an eventual drag on property values. So, she sets a plan into motion to drive the Addams out. But little does she know that her sullen teenage daughter, Parker (voice of ELSIE FISHER), has made friends with Wednesday. Also, her plan is put into motion on the same weekend the whole Addams clan is descending on Assimilation to celebrate Pugsley's weird coming-of-age ceremony, including Uncle Fester (voice of NICK KROLL), cousin It (voice of SNOOP DOGG), and Grandma Addams (voice of BETTE MIDLER).

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Children will be attracted to its lively animation and spooky trappings during Halloween month, while the edgy humor and the tween characters Wednesday and Pugsley may appeal to the middle school set.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For macabre and suggestive humor and some action.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
