Whether the sequel to the hit ‘90s revival of Charles Addams’ altogether ooky brood is better than the original is up for debate (both are a funeral procession ahead of the animated reboot). But Addams Family Values is undeniably among the best Thanksgiving movies of all time. Any who would say otherwise need only watch Christina Ricci’s Wednesday transform a pilgrims-and-Natives Thanksgiving pageant into a Kill Bill-calibre massacre. It’s a holiday classic. Eat your heart out, Capra.
