The Addams Family

Other mistake: After days, when the evil Margaux sends messages through the neighbourhood app to warn everyone about the Addams allegedly about to "attack the town", on screen you see that there have been no new messages since the first time she used it, during Wednesday's arrival at school. Would be quite strange if days went by without a single new message. (01:03:40)

Other mistake: Bethany puts a mouldy sandwich in Parker's bag, then grabs a beverage from a student, pours it in the bag, and shakes it for good measure. When Wednesday later retrieves the sandwich, it's not wet at all. It should have been a soggy mess. (00:40:00)

Other mistake: In the sequence when Pugsley gives the 'reading' for the Mazurka, the written part of each of the three book pages is identical. The pages have also been flipped backwards. (01:07:50)

Other mistake: Not to dispute cartoonish antics, but in the climax of the movie, Pugsley's bombs destroy the boulders fired by the catapult without causing as much as a little bit of dust, while the house crumbles with a lot of detail in rubble, falling bits and assorted devastation. The whole explosion effects look really like they don't belong with the rest of the mise-en-scene. (01:11:30)

Other mistake: When Margaux is thumbing the message to the population to turn them against the Addams, the keys she hits do not match the text. (01:03:00)

Other mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Morticia wakes up tapping the van-shaped alarm clock. The emergency light in the following wider angle is casting a red shade on the table by the vehicle, something that was not happening at all in the close-up. (00:00:45)

Other mistake: The villagers cut the Addams' escape path demolishing the bridge using a flaming projectile from a catapult. Gomez looked towards the bridge (and we as audience got a clean view too) and there was nobody in sight; how did not just a small crowd but also a large mechanical weapon materialize so suddenly? With a fire that would have cast a light in the dark, even. (00:03:30)

Morticia: Is everyone all right? No limbs missing that weren't missing before you arrived? (01:14:00)
