Watching ‘The Addams Family 2’ Movie Online via Gomovies Site Now
“The Addams Family 2” builds on 2019’s thoroughly enjoyable animated movies you can watch on Gomovies 123Movies debut by being quirky and engaging, but it misses the warmth of the prior film and also feels more immature. The cartoon family is still amusing to watch, but the tale is geared toward younger audiences, and the storytelling lacks cohesion and finesse this time around.
Wednesday Addams (voiced by Chloe Grace Moretz) enters a very Addams-like project in her school’s mundane science fair, and despite her request that her parents Gomez (Oscar Isaac) and Morticia (Charlize Theron) not attend, they do. Wednesday has discovered a way to transfer personality traits amongst creatures by putting shards of their DNA in a drink, a finding that attracts the attention of Cyrus Strange, a wealthy computer tycoon (Bill Hader).
Wednesday’s disappointment (and perhaps a bit clinical depression) causes her to withdraw from her parents, especially after an unpleasant lawyer (Wallace Shawn) shows up with the news that Wednesday might not be an Addams after all.
For his part, Pugsley (Javon Walton) is still blowing stuff up, but he’s having trouble learning out how to talk to girls. Gomez appoints Fester (Nick Kroll) to assist him because he’s awkward and bumbling in comparison to his smooth-talking father. It’s not going so great. With both children rapidly growing up and a huge cloud over Wednesday’s parentage, Gomez and Morticia decide to take the family on a trans road trip to some of the country’s most haunted locations.
The film’s chaotic efforts to blend several ideas into one cohesive story doesn’t work. There are five credited screenwriters adapting Charles Addams’ iconically ghoulish characters, and while a team of scripters isn’t uncommon (especially in animation movie), the film’s chaotic attempt to blend several ideas into one cohesive story doesn’t work. The writing is fragmented and episodic; rather of telling a complete story, they’ve constructed a few interconnected sequences with gags that only work if you’re under the age of 12.
What the Differences with Addams Family Session 1?
In comparison to the earlier animated “Addams Family,” the plot lacks the warmth that this hilarious clan is known for. After decades, Gomez and Morticia are still stylish and hot for one other, and they enjoy their oddball crew, but we’re not feeling it this time. Instead of focusing on the emotional theme of parents and children growing apart — with one entering adolescence while the other questions her parentage — the writers of “Addams Family 2” appear to have forgotten that young viewers can understand complex emotional arcs such as families trying to reconnect.
The voice cast is once again completely immersed in their characters. Isaac’s Gomez voice is unmistakably Gomez, which begs the issue of why he has yet to play a Latino part in a non-animated film. Morticia is alive with Theron’s energy, sarcastic wit, and style, lending life to one of the less active characters. Although the entire cast blends nicely and injects movie proceedings with the majority of the joy on display, Moretz’s performance as Wednesday drives the picture through its brightest moments.
Returning co-directors Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan (“Sausage Party”) don’t contribute much fresh to the animated Addamses this time around, which works against them. Family life is about personal development and growth as a unit. Wednesday and the focus on her coming-of-age issues are absolutely on the right track for where the family could go from here, but the filmmakers would be well to keep in mind that any growing pains their characters are going through are shared by the children who will be watching the film.
Within minutes, it’s evident that Wednesday’s journey is “The Addams Family 2’s” emotional glue, but no paste can stick if there’s too much lint (or, in this case, silly puns and childish humor) on the surface. So, just enjoy it at home with 123Movies site on your hand.
