The film suffers from tepid performances, feebly drawn characters, and a meandering narrative.

Burton piles on the artistic gore for this rendition. He just forgets to add the terror.

Tim Burton should get a creative divorce from Danny Elfman and keep his girlfriend Lisa Marie out of his films.

A film which looks great but, in the end, is not the sum of its body parts.

For about an hour it's a fine, ghoulish carnival sideshow, and that has its charms, but there's a thin desperation about the climax.

A "Hollow-wood" production that couldn't be more hollow or Hollywoodish.

Without Depp's appeal or Burton's sense of humor and wildly creative style to buoy it, this script would play like one of those over-produced, under-intelligent literature plunders that TV networks run during sweeps week.

A plot sufficiently twisty to confuse younger viewers and not original or interesting enough to become more than a big ho hum for the adults.

As for that tagline, heads are more likely to be scratched, and it's the eyes that will be doing the rolling during "Sleepy Hollow."

Both sleepy and hollow.

Sleepy Hollow has an aesthetic that seems based on album covers. It doesn't feel like the work of an artist in any way.

Devoid of originality and cunning.

The Burton trademark special effects are typically fun, but the late release and lackluster performances make Sleepy Hollow feel exactly like its title: sleepy and hollow.

It's really too bad the script stinks.
