After the scientific fair, Gomez and Morticia decide to take the family on a road vacation, which causes complications for the Addams Family 2. Their children are maturing too quickly, skipping family dinners and choosing to spend more time alone, as teenagers do. Wednesday, in particular, appears to be despising her parents by the day, and is wrestling with larger problems about her identity. Pugsley, on the other hand, has developed a strong interest in females and is seeking advise from Uncle Fester (Nick Kroll). IMDB
The three-week road trip from their home in New Jersey to Death Valley, California, would have been an excellent opportunity for the film to ramp up sarcastic insights about American life, but it fails to do so. In fact, what happens at each place, from Niagara Falls to Miami and on to the Grand Canyon, feels like more of the same. When the family members do interact with other individuals, both the “normie” Americans and the Addams family are depicted in a way that barely piques curiosity. How many jokes about obnoxious, selfie-obsessed tourists can you make before it becomes tiresome?
