Brilliant dark comedy
| Original Score: 4/5
August 14, 2003
Burton's breakthrough film. Marred by boring leads.
| Original Score: 4/5
May 20, 2003
[The] actors, not surprisingly, are limited by the stupidity of their material.
March 10, 2003
This comic spook tale borrows a page from the Topper storyline, but does it with imaginative fun and style.
February 6, 2003
Tim Burton's freshest work, and perhaps the purest embodiment of his funky world view. Count the number of people whose careers were made here; that's no fluke.
| Original Score: 4/5
December 19, 2002
An excellent, twisted, funny film back when Burton didn't get in the way of his own filmmaking.
| Original Score: 4/5
November 7, 2002
One of Tim Burton's earliest works, and quite possibly his best, when his eager energy wasn't completely swamped by his self-indulgence.

One of the all-time great ghost movies, and certainly the funniest.
| Original Score: 4/5
July 26, 2002
Coasts by like a rocket, thanks to Keaton's inspired performance and Burton's dark-carnival lunacy.
| Original Score: 4/5
January 1, 2000
The movie is all anticlimax once we realize it's going to be about gimmicks, not characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
The joy of Beetlejuice is its completely bizarre -- but perfectly realized -- view of the world.
January 1, 2000
Not since Ghostbusters have the spirits been so uplifting.
January 1, 2000
Burton makes good use of all the possibilities offered by the plot and gives us some wildly original creatures, most notably Michael Keaton as the terrible Beetlejuice.

[A] tournee of mediocre special effects.
