Joan Cusack is the absolute savior of this. Through sheer charisma she overcomes the "bros before hoes"-y vibe of her plot arc. You find yourself rooting for her. Ricci crushes her many one-liners, but I still wish they'd've given her more to chew on. The Gomez/Morticia dance scene is really great, as is, of course, Wednesday & co taking over the Thanksgiving play and doing murder on the bougie "Pilgrims". LMAO!
Joan Cusack is funny, but when you already have great characters like Morticia and Wednesday, it's incredible to think that you would focus on other characters. Like make the movie about them. I feel it's weaker than the first film, but I've yet to make up my mind.
