 Addams Family Values (1993) on IMDb

Sonnenfield’s comedy sequel sees the Addams family welcoming a new baby boy but then making the mistake of employing devious nanny (Joan Cusack). She pretends to fall in love with Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) and then marries him, intending to murder him for his inheritance. Meanwhile, the family teenagers, Wednesday (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman), are none to happy about their new sibling and will stop at nothing to get rid of  him. While the first film did better business at the box office and was deemed a strong adaptation of the madcap TV series, Addams Family Value goes deliciously more macabre and satirical in its humour and was seen by many critics as a rare example of a sequel that is better than the original.
