Dark Shadows 2012 ★★

Ultra-lite entertainment is perfectly cast (though many cast members are underutilized), but coasts on fish-out-of-water gags and amiable atmosphere. It makes for an easy couple of hours, but offers little creativity and absolutely no wit. Besides, it's hard to get excited about what is essentially a lame version of a movie Barry frickin' Sonnenfeld has already made… 20 years ago… twice! (The Addams Family and Addams Family Values are both exponentially smarter, funnier, and more memorable efforts.) Meh.
