Added DiffLines:

** After they're forced from their home in the first movie and Gomez slips into a lethargic depression, the normally humorous BaitAndSwitch gag formula that's proven itself for laughs so far is used to heartbreaking effect.

Added DiffLines:

* The very first lines in the first film as FridgeHorror sets in. The family has been holding a seance for Fester every year for 25 years in hopes of contacting him. A seance is usually invoked to summon the spirit of someone who is ''dead''. When Gomez laments, "And, for 25 years... nothing. I'm beginning to think my brother truly is lost." He was more comforted with the idea that Fester was dead versus being cut off from him forever.

Added DiffLines:

* As infamously terrible and cheesy as ''Addams Family Reunion'' was, it does manage to throw in a surprisingly heart-wrenching scene where Gomez actually breaks down in tears over his parents becoming "normal". Helps that Creator/TimCurry, a ''very'' good actor in his own right, decided apparently to [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously take the bad film seriously]].

* The Addamses being forced to move out of their home. Each member looks absolutely ''dejected'' as they are seen packing up their belongs into the family car. Even Gomez, who played the AFoolForAClient card in court to fight the restraining order, suffers a HeroicBSOD that he takes a good while to recover from as a result of the loss (quite jarring when you remember the Gomez of the series happily shrugging off such losses). Further, as the car pulls away from the house, you can hear Fester -- who's been watching them from a window this whole time -- crying in the distance.
