It's an experience, rather than another helping of the same old thing.

Early Tim Burton is creepy, dark fun for tweens and teens.

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...

Tim Burton's imagination jumped into the saddle and held onto the bridle with Beetlejuice.

...weird and unorthadox and innovative and clever, but the main thing is that it's funny.

The character of Beetlejuice is hazy because the writers can never decide if he's a villain or an anti-hero...

One of [Burton's] flat-out funniest films, with Michael Keaton giving a performance for the ages.

Beetlejuice means something good: that imaginative artists can bring a fading genre back from the dead.

A surreal, demented delight.

A minor classic.
August 18, 2008
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.

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.
June 1, 2007
Very clever black comedy full of great characters and situations.

Leave it to Tim Burton, with his affinity for the misunderstood monster, to be as sweet as he is funny, and not terribly scary, though that's part of his point...
