Review: Edward Scissorhands

Director: Tim Burton

Starring: Johnny Depp, Wynona Ryder, Dianne Wiest

Year: 1990

Genre: Romance/Comedy

Rated: PG-13

Length: 105 min.

IMDB Summary: An uncommonly gentle young man, who happens to have scissors for hands, falls in love with a beautiful teenage girl.

Zany and weird, Edward Scissorhands is best described as a cult classic. There's nothing new about the plot--boy likes girl, and must overcome obstacles to be with her--but the concept of a man with giant scissors for hands is somewhat of a novelty to the big screen. Perhaps this accounts for the success of the film, which also features the acting talents of a young Johnny Depp. Although I personally found it a bit weird and far-fetched for my taste, you may well enjoy Edward Scissorhands for the cult classic that it is.

For Parents:
Some action violence (including mild stabbings), sexual innuendo, gothic tone toward end of film

My Rating:
