Looking for a movie to watch this weekend?

Take a look at what you can enjoy without leaving home.

Here’s what will be playing on broadcast and cable television.

Friday October 20

Addams Family Values (1993)

Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia return to the mysterious world of a somewhat sinister family in this follow up to the original movie hit. The second installment is light, fun and wonderfully odd.

4:15 p.m. Friday and 9:15 p.m. Saturday, Freeform

Hocus Pocus (1993)

Bette Midler, soon to end her Broadway run in Hello, Dolly, shines in this delightful Disney rendition of what happens when witches from Salem return on Halloween. A grand tale.

6:20 p.m., Freeform


Mahogany (1975)

Diane Ross’ first film after snagging an Oscar nomination for Lady Sings the Blues is rarely seen these days. Although the story is a mess, Ross is radiant as an ambitious designer.

8 p.m. TCM

Monster-in-Law (2005)

Jane Fonda reminds us what a savvy comedienne she can be in this silly story about a domineering mother who tries to influence her son’s love life. Jennifer Lopez costars.

8 p.m. E!

Saturday October 21

Kiss Me Kate (1955)

Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson sing snappy Cole Porter songs in this movie version of the Broadway hit, inspired by Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. But Ann Miller steals the show.

12:15 p.m. TCM

Viola Davis in The Help.

The Help (2011)

Emma Stone, currently earning raves for her turn in Battle of the Sexes, makes us think with her portrayal of a young writer searching for truth in the Deep South in the 1960s.

8 p.m. Bravo


The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Leonardo DiCaprio has a great time as an over-the-top stock broker in Martin Scorsese’s overdone and overlong adaptation of Jordan Belfort’s book. This is not a family film.

8 p.m. FXM

Brief Encounter (1946)

Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard create movie magic as people tempted to begin an illicit affair in Noel Coward’s classic romance that inspired many films. Directed by the great David Lean.

8 p.m. TCM

Sunday, October 22

Wuthering Heights (1939)

Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon portray tragic lovers Heathcliff and Cathy in the first movie adaptation of Emily Bronte’s classic novel. The film’s intensity refuses to age.

12:15 p.m. TCM

Old Acquaintance (1943)

Bette Davis and Miriam Hopkins have chew a lot scenery as friends who personally and professionally compete. Remade in the 1980s as Rich and Famous with Candice Bergen.

6 p.m. TCM
