“We danced the Mamushka while Nero fiddled, we danced the Mamushka at Waterloo. We danced the Mamushka for Jack the Ripper, and now, Fester Addams, this Mamushka is for you,” Gomez Addams said.
A dark comedy that was basically revamping from the TV series created a new group of characters that really embodied the original characters from the show.
I enjoyed this film and its sequel, I don’t own them. However i adore the scores to these films! The score was composed by Marc Shaiman and the film was directed by Barry Sonnenfeld.
Here is the basic plot…When a man (Christopher Lloyd) claiming to be Fester, the missing brother of Gomez Addams (Raul Julia), arrives at the Addams’ home, the family is thrilled. However, Morticia (Anjelica Huston) begins to suspect the man is a fraud, since he cannot recall details of Fester’s life. With the help of lawyer Tully Alford (Dan Hedaya), Fester manages to get the Addams clan evicted from their home. Gomez realizes the two men are conspiring to swindle the Addams fortune and that he must challenge Fester.
You can find the score on Amazon through third party sellers.
