Addams Family Values

The Family Just Got A Little Stranger. It's love at first sight when Gomez (Raul Julia) and Motricia (Anjelica Huston) welcome a new addition to the Addams Household - Pubert, their soft, cuddly, mustachioed baby boy. As Fester (Christopher Lloyd) falls hard for voluptuous nanny Debbie Jilinsky (Joan Cusack), Wednesday (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) discover she's a black widow murderess who plans to add Fester to her collection of dead husbands. The family's future grows even bleaker when the no-good nanny marries Fester and has the kids shipped off to summer camp.

The Addams Family

Looking for something CREEPY...SPOOKY...KOOKY...and altogether OOKY? Come join The Addams Family for the most hilarious scarefest of this season or any other! When long-lost Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) reappears after twenty-five years in the Bermuda Triangle, Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) plan a celebration to wake the dead. But Wednesday (Christina Ricci) barely has time to warm up her electric chair before Thing points out Fester's uncommonly "normal" behavior. Could this Fester be a fake, part of an evil scheme to raid the Addams fortune?

Seraphim Falls

A great-looking, well-acted Western in the old-school tradition, Seraphim Falls is definitely worth a look for fans of the genre. There's nothing really new here (which explains why it played only briefly in theaters), and more than a few critics noted its obvious similarities to Clint Eastwood's classic The Outlaw Josey Wales. Still, you have to admire director and cowriter David Von Ancken (a 10-year TV veteran making his feature debut) for delivering an engrossing post-Civil War revenge story (cowritten with Abby Everett Jacques) that isn't hobbled by its overly familiar plotting.

The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou

In The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, director Wes Anderson takes his familiar stable of actors on a field trip to a fantasy aquarium, complete with stop-motion, candy-striped crabs and rainbow seahorses. And though Anderson does expand his horizons in terms of retro-special effects and a whimsical use of color, fans will otherwise find themselves in well-charted waters.

The Postman Always Rings Twice

In The Postman Always Rings Twice, Jack Nicholson teamed up again with his Five Easy Pieces and King of Marvin Gardens director Bob Rafelson for this 1981 version of James M. Cain's hardboiled novel of lust and murder. This version takes a much grittier (and sexually explicit) approach to the material than the slick 1946 MGM version starring John Garfield and Lana Turner. Nicholson plays Frank Chambers, a drifter who happens upon a roadside diner run by Cora Papadakis (Jessica Lange) and her swarthy Greek husband, Nick (John Colicos).

Manhattan Murder Mystery

Diane Keaton stars as Carol Lipton, a bored Manhattan housewife who becomes convinced that her nextdoor neighbor has committed a murder. When her skeptical husband, Larry (Allen), rejects the idea, Carol turns to a flirtatious friend (Alda) to help her search for clues. And as their enthusiasm for the case grows so does their interest in each other. Spurred on by jealousy - and by a seductive writer (Huston) who's also excited by the murder mystery - Larry reluctantly joins the chase, only to learn that much more than his marriage is at stake.

Crimes And Misdemeanors

American auteur Woody Allen explores themes of good and evil in this masterful modern-day morality play. When opthamologist Judah Rosenthal (Oscar-nominated Martin Landau) is threatened with ruin by his mistress if he doesn't marry her, he considers the ultimate solution to his problem: murder. Meanwhile, documentary filmmaker Clifford Stern is faced with an equally heinous moral dilemma: selling out. Allen compares the choices both men make, using a double storyline to brilliantly pair sharp comedy with harrowing drama.

Smash: Season 2

In Season Two, Broadway-bound musical Bombshell has competition on its heels in the form of Hit List, a rock musical written by two Broadway newcomers that threatens to tear apart the very fabric of Bombshell's team. As tension mounts on the road to Broadway, new romances are formed, loyalties are betrayed, and rivalries are reignited, all leading up to theater's biggest night -- The Tony Awards. Also starring Tonyr Award winner Christian Borle (Broadway's Peter and the Starcatcher), Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean), Krysta Rodriguez and Andy Mientus.

Smash: Season 1

The "show within a show" concept gets a full-throttle workout in Smash, released here with all 15 first-season episodes on four discs. The many trials and tribulations involved in mounting a Broadway production, in this case a musical about the life of Marilyn Monroe, are depicted in creator Theresa Rebeck's TV series. But there's an operatic element here, too--soap operatic, that is, as the behind-the-scenes tumult is designed to be a good deal juicier than what happens onstage. Not that the legendary Monroe ("There was something about her," says one character.
