Posted 6/16/2010

THE ADDAMS FAMILY Barry Sonnenfeld's 1991 big-screen translation of the 1960s television show inspired by Charles Addams' long-running New Yorker comic. If this version is at all entertaining, it's because of Christina Ricci's morbidly deadpan Wednesday Addams. At the Johns Hopkins University, Homewood Campus Wyman Quad June 18 at 8:30 p.m.
