ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES written by Paul Rudnick and directed by Barry Sonnenfeld in 1993, is the sequel to the 1991 comedy film The Addams Family.
Christina Ricci‘s Wednesday Addams is forced to go to a summer camp that she, obviously, hates. During her staying there she has to take part in a play: she is a Native American and she gives a hilarious and biting monologue about the first Thanksgiving and the last 200 years of Native American-white people relations, she leads the other social outcasts — who have all been cast as Native Americans — in a revolt, capturing Gary, Becky and Amanda and creating chaos in the camp.
Wednesday: Wait! We cannot break bread with you. You have taken the land which is rightfully ours. Years from now my people will be forced to live in mobile homes on reservations. Your people will wear cardigans, and drink highballs. We will sell our bracelets by the road sides, you will play golf, and enjoy hot hors d’oeuvres. My people will have pain and degradation. Your people will have stick shifts. The gods of my tribe have spoken. They have said, “Do not trust the Pilgrims, especially Sarah Miller.” And for all these reasons I have decided to scalp you and burn your village to the ground.
This monologue can be used by teenagers and for mean characters casting.
Ok, so now check it out!
Stay tuned…as every Monday I will post a “female movie monologue” hoping that this can make it easier for us girls!
