The story almost comes off the rails, but Beetlejuice's charm lies more in the execution. The movie is crammed with visual invention and snappy comedy.

April 5, 2018
For sheer off-the-wall audacity, Tim Burton's demented Beetlejuice certainly demands respect, even if it's more enjoyable in concept than in execution.
March 30, 2018
Beetlejuice is so memorable and iconic because Burton took chances and dared to be different.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10
March 30, 2018
The movie's such a riot of invention we let him take it more or less anywhere.
March 30, 2018
Betelgeuse doesn't fully emerge until the film is half over, but Michael Keaton makes a strong enough impression in the role to explain why the picture is named after his character.
March 30, 2018
[Tim] Burton's marvellously imaginative view of the afterlife as a ghoulish extension of mundane earthbound problems is a visionary masterstroke crammed with wit and invention.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 30, 2018
An overly ambitious special-effects comedy obviously influenced by the success of Ghostbusters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 29, 2018
Starting with the title, not much about this movie makes sense. That's what's fun about it.
March 29, 2018
Amazingly, it all still feels fresh, even though Burton has since become something of his own franchise since.

March 29, 2018
The film is a dazzling display of director Tim Burton's unique pop culture sensibility.
March 29, 2018
Much as Joe Dante did in ``Gremlins`` and ``Innerspace,`` Burton delights in creating in live-action format the impossible effects of cartoons and comic strips.

It's an experience, rather than another helping of the same old thing.
January 2, 2011
Early Tim Burton is creepy, dark fun for tweens and teens.

November 3, 2008
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.
October 29, 2008
Quite possibly the most bizarre and flat-out surreal effort of Tim Burton's career...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
October 9, 2008
Tim Burton's imagination jumped into the saddle and held onto the bridle with Beetlejuice.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
October 7, 2008
...weird and unorthadox and innovative and clever, but the main thing is that it's funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
October 4, 2008
The character of Beetlejuice is hazy because the writers can never decide if he's a villain or an anti-hero...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 11, 2008
One of [Burton's] flat-out funniest films, with Michael Keaton giving a performance for the ages.
August 22, 2008
Beetlejuice means something good: that imaginative artists can bring a fading genre back from the dead.
