One truly sad thing about the Addams Family Values film? Debbie never realized she fit in EXACTLY with the Addams family.
So she was a black widow serial killer who murdered all her ex-husbands for the cash. Um, you think any of them gave a shit about that? Heck, they’d have been impressed. Even Morticia seemed a bit in awe of her at the end.
It’s heavily implied in the film that all Debbie was ever really looking for was love and acceptance. Well, she’d kind of found it. She just didn’t realize it.
Man, that family would have loved her, no matter what. If she’d only given them the chance.
The eternal appeal of the Addams Family is that even though they’re weird, quirky and borderline psychopathic, they are *still* far more genuine, honest and nice than the corrupt cesspit of bourgeois America that surrounds them.
You know, kids? I've been thinking. At the end of the day, Halloween isn't about candy or costumes. Or even scaring people. It's a day when the whole family can get together at one place and celebrate what really matters... PURE EVIL!
