  • In the surreal, wonderfully cartoon-like comedy BEETLEJUICE, a childless couple, Barbara and Adam (Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin), move to the country only to be killed in a car accident while passing over a quaint covered bridge. Their ghosts return to their beloved Victorian home, and find the HANDBOOK FOR THE RECENTLY DECEASED, which not only lets them know they're dead, but comes in handy when they learn that they can continue to live in their house, even though a new family--from the land of the living--is moving in. The new owners, fresh from the city, are quite a strange group themselves, and include the overpowering hipster mom Delia (Catherine O'Hara), her pompous SoHo interior designer Otho (Glenn Shadix), her meek husband Charles (Jeffrey Jones), and their morose teenage daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder), who befriends the ghostly couple. Though the threesome attempt to scare Delia from ruining the house with redecoration and her unpleasant personality, their attempts fail. As a last resort, they call upon the services of the demented, terrifying, but hilarious "bioexorcist," "Beetlejuice" (Michael Keaton). Director Tim Burton scores big with witty site gags, incredible special effects and sets, and a unique ensemble of characters. BEETLEJUICE is a visually inventive and imaginative comedy taken to a uniquely grotesque and funny level by the manic performance of Michael Keaton in the title role.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...BEETLEJUICE springs to life....A hoot..."

    "...[A] mind-boggling, sporran-whirring fantasy-reality teaser..."
    Film Comment

    "...An uproarious ghost comedy....The film is a dazzling display of director Tim Burton's unique pop culture sensibility..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "This movie does for Harry Belafonte's 'Banana Boat Song' (aka Day-O) what ADVENTURE did for 'Tequila'."
    USA Today

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat counts here is the outlandish special effects, the genius set-pieces and the now typically Burton view of the afterlife as an extension of the everyday."

    "Tim Burton's second feature has Michael Keaton doing a sensational star turn in the title role of a self-styled bio-exorcist. After two decades the film remains one of the funniest ghost stories ever made."
    Wall Street Journal
