The Addams Family 2 & The Many Saints of Newark | At the Movies

The theme of family predominates two latest movie releases: "The Adams Family 2" and "The Many Saints of Newark." The characters from Charles Addams’ legendary single-panel cartoons are back, with more problems to resolve, often hilariously. The young Tony Soprano also has problems to face, often with tragic results. Paul Willistein of the Lehigh Valley Press reviews both films: the animated feature film and the crime drama.

Listen to At the Movies every Monday at 6:25 PM during Lehigh Valley Arts Salon.

(Original air-date: 10/11/21)
