Overview

Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands opens as an eccentric inventor Vincent Price lovingly assembles a synthetic youth named Edward Johnny Depp. Edward has all the essential ingredients for today's standard body, with the exception of a pair of hands. For what is initially thought to be a temporary period, he is fitted with long, scissor-like extremities that, while able to trim a mean hedge, are hardly conducive to day-to-day life.

Overview

Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands opens as an eccentric inventor Vincent Price lovingly assembles a synthetic youth named Edward Johnny Depp. Edward has all the essential ingredients for today's standard body, with the exception of a pair of hands. For what is initially thought to be a temporary period, he is fitted with long, scissor-like extremities that, while able to trim a mean hedge, are hardly conducive to day-to-day life. When the kindly inventor dies, however, Edward is left lonely and cursed with some very heavy metal for hands. He is eventually taken in by Peg Boggs Dianne Weist, an Avon lady who takes pity on him after seeing his bleak existence. Edward, in spite of his inherent ability to slay anyone he comes across, is a gentle soul whose only wish is to be loved. His impromptu family has, at best, a limited understanding of Edward, but he finds himself drawn to Peg's weary but sympathetic daughter, Kim Winona Ryder, who is dating Jim Anthony Michael Hall, the neighborhood bully. Meanwhile, Edward finds himself a local celebrity after the town realizes that his talents include creative hedge trimming and an unrivaled ability to cut hair. His so-called friends are proven fair-weather when Edward is accused of a crime, after which his only supporters are Peg and Kim. ~ Tracie Cooper

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A contemporary fairy tale from director Tim Burton, Edward Scissorhands tells the unusual story of a man-made youth with scissor blades for fingers Johnny Depp, who lives alone in the abandoned mansion of his dead creator Vincent Price in a fantastic cameo. Soon poor Edward is discovered, and then adopted, by a kindly Avon lady Dianne Wiest. In the first of his starring roles for Burton, Depp makes an arresting lead with his black latex jumpsuit, pasty white skin, and Medusa-like hair. But it is through an unusual warmth and tenderness that Depp's performance truly defines Edward. Weist and Alan Arkin are superb as the amiably clueless parents who welcome him into their home, and Winona Ryder, in a full turn from her brooding teen in Burton's Beetlejuice, is radiant as their cheerleader daughter on whom Edward develops a hopeless crush. As engaging as the love story is Burton's savage lampooning of suburbia, which he presents as innocuously bland-looking but seething with petty intrigues and thinly veiled intolerance. His sympathies clearly run to Edward, whose bittersweet experiences in the "real" world will both delight and haunt viewers of this charming cinematic fable. The tenth anniversary edition DVD cements Edward Scissorhands's place in Burton's oeuvre, featuring an entertaining and informative audio commentary from Burton and composer Danny Elfman.
All Movie Guide
The misunderstood outcast is one of the most cherished of Hollywood heroes, and in Edward Scissorhands director Tim Burton shows us why. The story is a touching fable, an old-fashioned parable of love and intolerance -- but with a distinctly Burton-esque spin. The film is proof of just how different the director's visual style is: the fairy-tale suburbia he creates is a perfect example of his astonishing, uniquely Gothic look. What's more, the performers who populate this world do it proud. Johnny Depp is perfect as the gentle, emotionally fragile title character who just wants to be accepted, and Dianne Wiest's saccharine, Avon-lady mom is delightfully loopy. This was Vincent Price's last feature film, and the melancholy mix of conventional horror movie, social satire, and quirky comedy seems appropriate, as does his part as the mad (if kindly) scientist who creates Edward. Ultimately, Burton chooses to end the film with a fitting Frankenstein homage, as the community casts out the monster it never learned to accept -- an ending which may not sit well with viewers hoping for a more uplifting conclusion. Edward Scissorhands is a charming tale, beautifully realized, and, like its protagonist, nothing if not unique.

    If you haven't seen it, you must now.

    For the very few that never saw this movie, need to see it immediately. This movie is such a great movie to observe the different kinds of people and how easily we turn someone into the villain. Johnny Depp does a wonderful job as well as Winnna Ryder, Dianne West, and Anthony Michael Hall.

    THIS IS A GREAT MOVIE!!!

    Edward Scissorhands is an absolute classic. Directed by the brilliant mind of Tim Burton, this bizarre tale takes place during the late 50's early 60's in a small suburb. Of course Tim couldn't resist anything short of crazy for this town, as all the houses are brightly colored, almost identical in shape and structure, and nothing short of amazing. The town itself with its bright colors and cheerful design sharply contrast that of the mansion on the hill, where we begin the movie. Inside the dark mansion, we meet the Inventor; played by the brilliant Vincent Price who creates a human out of loneliness, who is fully functional, save for the temporary substitution of scissors for the human's hands. Edward (epically played by Johnny Depp), as he is later known by, is discovered by Peg Boggs(Dianne Wiest), a travelling Avon saleswoman, who desperate for a sale, cruises up to the dark mansion at the top of the hill. Peg takes Edward home where he soon meets the beautiful Kim (Wynonna Ryder), and her ignorant boyfriend Jim. At first, and throughout most of the movie, Edward is accepted by the community because of his unique abilities with his Scissorhands (haircutting, dog grooming, landscaping) But his lack of completion, due to his creators death, becomes his undoing. He is convinced to help Jim break into Jim's house in order to steal some money for Jim and Kim, where he is abandoned as the police arrive. From this point, Edward starts to turn for the worst. The climatic shift comes during Christmas Eve, where Edward, while climbing down from an ice sculpture, accidentally cuts Kim's hand. Jim then tells off Edward, which infuriates him. Edward then goes on a rampage, destroying the same creations he once made for the town. He is eventually chased back up to the mansion, where he and Jim have a dramatic fight scene resulting in Jim's death. Kim, also present at the mansion, kisses Edward, and walks out of the mansion with a scissor contraption and claims that both Edward and Jim died when the roof collapsed. Overall, Edward Scissorhands is an excellently performed, amazingly designed movie that should be watched by everyone.

    One of my top 10

    Good, but weird film that really sparked my interest because of it's director Tim Burton. He just can't really make a bad or terrible movie. Usually, he always hits a home run with his films. This is also Johnny Depp's film role.

    A Hot Guy with scissorhands? That's hot.

    Ok, so I just watched this movie today for the very first time in my life and I fell in love with it. People it will make you cry your eyes off..if you have a soft mushy chick flick side like me.I loved how Johnny portrayed the role of Edward and he did a fantastic job. It makes me wish they would make a sequal to it now...like that's gonna happen. Oh well...it's nice to dream.

    Touching

    I love this movie. Johnny Depp was wonderful with Winona Ryder. I remeber seeing this movie when I was little and liking it. One of the few who loved it before they (I) knew who the heck Johnny was. More importantly this movie can teach you about life. Two thumbs up!

    Tim Burton's Best

    This is Tim Burton's best film. I love it. This movie is sweet, scary and hilarious. The music is wonderful, and is a work of art all on its own. When Tim Burton and Danny Elfman get together, they make something that just cant be explained in words.

    Perfect...

    This is my favorite movie. I bought the DVD without seeing it first because I knew I would like it. And I was right! This story is very emotional because most people can relate to Edward: the person who wants so desprately to fit in but never can. He loves everything, but hurts whatever he touches. He wants people to see him for what he is and not what he looks like (his hands). This film is very personal to Tim Burton, because he felt what Edward felt for most of his life. It's not all sad though, a lot of this movie is pretty funny. It made me laugh out loud. The music by Danny Elfman is wonderful, and Johnny Depp did a perfect acting job. Watch this movie, you'll love it!

    A Fable of True Creativity

    This movie was the second Johnny Depp movie I saw after Pirates of the Caribbean. I truly fell in love with him by the end of this movie. The soundtrack is unbelievable. I listen to it every day! I rented this movie for a week. By the time I had to return it, I bought the movie, and I had seen it over twenty times(Trust me, I counted)! Johnny Depp is truly an amazing actor!

    This Was Johnny Depps First Grate Movie

    Even though I have only seen this movie once when i was really young I still remember. It was funny and sad and also frightening. (I accually was kind of scared at first). When he gave all the dogs the haircuts I laughed really hard because it was funny. And the end was really scary too because he killed the guy and he fell out the window that scared the tar out of me. Johnny Depp was really good in this film portraying a man with no hands. Another funny part was when Edward Sissorshand got all the face cream on his face and he looked really funny. All in all this was a really good movie and really good acting to it. The brain would probably have something to say but he wasn't here so Its just me Pinky.

    A Fairy Tale All It's Own

    The dark scenes, the resonating light effects, the props, and the directing. Tim Burton makes another startling movie of gothic film noir perportions. The camera work in the ice sculpting scene was well done, it presents itself in an almost kinetic form. This movie is mainly famous for it's incredulous acting done by the then rookie, Johnny Depp. Depp was able to create a character that seemed hideous and repulsive, but he won the audiences' hearts over by creating emotion for his character, he is understandable. The dreamlike state and perposeful fakiness make the real star the director, Tim Burton. Burton creates a modern fairytale in ways no one could possibly comprehend, he blends cult film status with morality lessons and he has his painting. This movie will live on in the hearts of millions, just like E.T. did a decade ago.

    A Fantastical Tale

    This quite possibly, in my opinion, is the greatest fairy tale ever told. There is nothing but pure beauty and splendor in this film. It shows you how disgusting civilization can be and how it can take away from innocence. Tim Burton is one of the few genious filmmakers and I'm thankful he made this story.

    Family of Johnny Depp movie-watchers

    If our whole family had to pick one actor that we spend the most time watching, Johnny Depp wins, hands down. My son, E.T was born in 1990, and grew up watching it (nice to have a 10th Anniversary Edition!). My husband and I grab every film he makes for our library. This is a favorite Depp flick of all time. The cast was great, the story was fairy-tale like, but you would believe anything Johnny Depp did on screen. Even though this is one of Depp's first films, it is one showcasing his many talents and characteristics of the Oscar winner he will indeed be in the very near future.
