Producer: Tim Burton
Fleeing a disastrous wedding rehearsal, Victor Van Dort practices his vows in the woods outside town and accidentally slips the ring onto the hand of a dead young woman who rises out of the ground and responds with "I do." Oops.
Magnificently animated (from frame one, it’s so good you won’t believe or even notice it was animated), voiced and designed, this is another fun, warm and wacky entry into the canon of Tim Burton but there’s not much flesh on these bones. (Sorry.) This isn’t in the same class as Burton and Elfman’s timeless masterpiece The Nightmare Before Christmas. Danny Elfman’s okay songs largely tell you nothing while the dialogue too often tells you stuff that you had already discerned or felt. But at least you do feel it, especially with the unexpectedly beautiful final shot, while "I’ve got a dwarf and I’m not afraid to use him" may be destined for quotable classic status.
This movie contains mild adult references and mild unpleasant scenes, violence.
