Thanks to the carelessness of a cute little dog, newlyweds Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin are killed in a freak auto accident. Upon arriving in the outer offices of Heaven, the couple finds that, thanks to a century's worth of bureaucratic red tape, they're on a long celestial waiting list. Before they can earn their wings, Davis and Baldwin must occupy their old house as ghosts for the next fifty years. Alas, the house is now owned by insufferable yuppies Catherine O'Hara and Jeffrey Jones.

Beetlejuice means something good: that imaginative artists can bring a fading genre back from the dead.
Luckily, Keaton pops up from his grave to liven things up when the antics pitting the good ghosts against the intruders become a trite cat & mouse game.
With its sophisticated yet accessible blend of comedy and the macabre, I knew Beetlejuice was likely to be one of those films I would never tire of. But a classic? It's been 20 years. I'm willing to throw that blue ribbon on it.
Quite possibly the most bizarre and flat-out surreal effort of Tim Burton's career...
Daylight comes to Beetlejuice in this anniversary DVD, but apparently the bonus features wan' go home.
Tim Burton's imagination jumped into the saddle and held onto the bridle with Beetlejuice.
...inventive and funny, something that has eluded Burton for a while now. (Blu-ray Edition)
...weird and unorthadox and innovative and clever, but the main thing is that it's funny.
One of [Burton's] flat-out funniest films, with Michael Keaton giving a performance for the ages.
Darkly humorous and visually inventive, Burton's second film, which deservedly won the Makeup Oscar, fulfilled the promise he showed in his debut, launching a brilliant career with Batman and other original movies, many of which starring Johnny Depp.
Very clever black comedy full of great characters and situations.
- Betelgeuse: Let's turn on the juice and see what shakes loose.
- Otho: You've read my mind! So few clients are up for the experience!
- Receptionist: ...And if I knew then what I know now, I wouldn't have had my little accident!
- Betelgeuse: It's showtime!
- Betelgeuse: We come for your daughter, Chuck.
- Lydia Deetz: My whole life is a dark room.
