* So on ''America's Most Disgusting Unsolved Crimes'' early in ''Addams Family Values'', [[{{Airplane}} Captain Oveur]] says that the Black Widow targets wealthy men, seduces them, marries them, and then kills them on the wedding night for the insurance/inheritance. But then later during her slideshow Debbie makes it pretty clear that she marries for love (or whatever) and stays with it for a couple years before killing her husband when he really pisses her off.

* It's obvious with the other members of the family what sort of unworldly "monster" they are meant to be - vampire, werewolf-thing, mad scientist, witch, evil unearthly child, et c. But Gomez. I've never been able to work him out. Whose culture and folklore is he a monster to, and what sort of monster? He just looks generically creepy but not in a way that evoked any particular trope. Is his being a lawyer enough on its own?

Added DiffLines:

** Technically only Grandmama is actively supernatural. Morticia only dresses like a vampire, mad scientists and serial killers aren't magic, etc. The original comic Gomez does, however, look like some depictions of a werewolf's human form.

*** Everything Debbie is saying during her slide shows are all from her point of view. She's just milking sympathy from the Addams to make herself look good.
** She killed her parents because they bought her the wrong Barbie doll. She's completely unstable.
* The idea in Addams Family Values is that Fester is desperate for a girlfriend, leading him to settle for Debbie. Yet in the first movie, didn't Gomez say in the past he was jealous of Fester's great love life? Remember, Fester was dating the twins Flora and Fauna Amore, and Gomez stole them away? Then suddenly Fester can't get anyone else because...why? This is a family that managed to marry off Cousin Itt, after all.

to:

*** Everything Debbie is saying during her slide shows was a complete sociopath. They are selfish and arrogant even when they're not complete psychopaths. She believes that the world revolves around her, that she's always right, that she deserves to have everything she wants, and she's without any sense of empathy for others. She thinks nothing she does is wrong; all from her point of view. She's just milking sympathy from the Addams to make herself look good.

those people she killed? They deserved it.

** My take on it was that Gomez was a non-supernatural human, but had gone insane.

*** Maybe, young as he was, his success with women didn't lead to sex?

** He could be jealous of Gomez and Morticia’s stable relationship. One thing is to have a lot of love conquest and another is to have a solid marriage and a family.

* Why was there an Amy Fisher card in the "Schizos and Serial Killers" trading card collection? Technically she's neither; she never actually killed anybody.

** Maybe she was really heartbroken and cried herself to sleep. She may be an Addams, but she's still a little kid.
