The Movie is very simple and doesn't say much like many of its characters, but what is said in its message is very meaningful. This is a movie that only gets better with time, I can see myself watching this movie for ages. It was easily my vote for best picture.
Funny, unique, sad, and sweet are just a few words that can used to describe Edward Scissorhands, but perhaps the best word is Moving. If you can resist the final scenes or Danny Elfman"s haunting score must you be made of stone.
Ignore the consensus to this movie it totally underscores this film. This movie displays "Will Ferrell prime" as I like to call it, this movie shows that fresh, imaginative, impeccably acted, well written movies still can be made.
This movie is outstanding in many ways, not just in entertainment but in the way Allen portrays the 1920's with Ella and Scott Fitzgerald and Hemingway. Over all this is an amazing film that should be treasured for years to come.
