In this ’90s take on our favorite spooky clan, we learn that the Addams family has actually expanded to include young baby Pubert. Wednesday and Pugsley are less than pleased with his arrival. That's when their new babysitter—who’s eyeing Uncle Fester's big bucks—decides to enroll the kiddos in summer camp. Obviously, it's not the children’s cup of poison. Camp Chippewa is the location of the famous Thanksgiving play scene that goes awry at Wednesday’s direction, giving Kill Bill a run for its (stage) blood-gushing money. You know we’re in for trouble the minute Wednesday, who stars as Pocahontas says, “Wait. We cannot break bread with you.” Rated PG-13.
Thanksgiving is around the corner, and with it family, turkey, movies and hopefully plenty of wintry good vibes. We can’t help with the turkey – you’re on your own there – but we can make a few suggestions of films to keep the little people in your brood occupied while you dust off the board games and catch up on Uncle Chuck’s latest predictaments.
And because you don’t need us to tell you that Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings are evergreen viewing options at this festive time of the year, this selection of kid-friendly films digs into some of the lesser-visited corners of the streaming world. There aren’t too many on-screen Thanksgivings out there, because while Hollywood loves a good family Christmas, it’s rarely had much urge to recreate the late November (avoid sharing the grown-up joys of Planes, Trains & Automobiles with the children). But there are a few goodies like A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving to keep them out of trouble.
