The Addams Family (1991)
The siblings: Gomez (Raul Julia) and Fester Addams (Christopher Lloyd)
What puts them at odds? ‘Gordon’ has been raised by a manipulative loan shark as her own son and is sent to pose as the long-lost Addams brother and steal the family treasure. But he really is the long-lost Fester Addams!
Amnesia: it’s not just a problem for your love life or the search for your wife’s killer. It can also seriously mar family gatherings, when clinical forgetfulness leads you to believe you are in fact an outsider who hates your own clan and is out to get them. Amnesia could lead you to lock your family out of the family mansion and reduce them to penury – at least until you get struck by lightning and regain your memory. The Addams would be horrified by the notion of a moral, however, so we won’t draw one from this little tale. We’ll just note that Fester was always a natural Addams.
