    A classic... Edward Scissorhands is a sharp salute to the oddball in all of us.

    Simple, funny, gorgeous, sad, and sweet, perfect for playing over and over.

    A delightful and delicate comic fable.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Depp, as the the fragile but irresistibily fabulous title character, is a delight.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Berry

    An ambitious and quite beautifully conceived fairy tale for the 90s.

    Empire Full Review
  • Elvis Mitchell

    Like a great chef concocting an exquisite peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich, Mr. Burton invests awe-inspiring ingenuity into the process of reinventing something very small.

  • Peter Travers

    Edward Scissorhands isn't perfect. It's something better: pure magic.

    The theme--that just beyond the edge of the perfectly normal lies the truly bizarre--is realized with intelligence and visual flair.

  • Rita Kempley

    Tim Burton remains the Wizard of Odd with this eye-filling if problematic confection.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The disappointment is that Burton has not yet found the storytelling and character-building strength to go along with his pictorial flair.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    The Spielbergian attempt at sweetness--heralded by references in Danny Elfman's score to the Nutcracker Suite--never fully convinces.

  • Michael Wilmington

    Perhaps the most original movie fantasy creation of the year: an icon of tenderness and artistic alienation that clings, stickum-like, to your mind's eye and the softest, most woundable parts of your mass-culture heart. [7 Dec 1990, Calendar, p.F-1]
