For this one I am going to squeeze in two because they are closely related and they are both family friendly this time around. or at least mostly :)

The Addams Family - 1991/ Casper- 1995

So let's start with this. If you watch a classic Addams Family episode, this is pretty darn close to it's source material. Which is rare in remakes.

Also let's talk about this guy.. Barry Sonnenfeld, he directed this movie... where I have I heard that name before .... oh yeah.. this!

Now onto Casper...

Let's start with the fact that it also is very close and respectful to it's original source material. Of course, it is a given that Casper's might have been tweaked and the character's behavior tweaked a little. But let me just say that I was a Casper cartoon fan before this movie came out and I was very happy with how they portrayed him.

Then let's simply talk about the special effects and huge things that were done behind the scenes for this movie.

This movie was first all done by Amblin entertainment which is known to be attached to E.T.

and it was pretty ground breaking animation at the time!

    What a great mytake! Interesting research on how they translated Casper from cartoons to "life". I love Casper and The Adams Family! <3
    Is this still revelant?

    I love this version of The Addams family I love this group of actors. I try to get into the newer ones but I just can't I my heart always goes back to this group of actors. I did not know that fact about the two adam family filmings and MIB connection to Barry Sonnenfeld. Cool fact! I remember being very impressed with how Casper appeared in that movie it was the thing back then like amazing graphics the story was awesome I was a little sad that he had to stay a ghost but I get it if he turns into real boy then there will be any more Casper the ghost anyways thanks for the my take and thinks back good memories of good films good childhood memories
