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

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.

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.

this was the second johnny depp movie that i saw, (after pirates of the caribbean) and it was really good. it's my third favorite movie, and third favorite johnny depp movie. i reccomend that you see this one after you see your first johnny depp movie, because if you see something like Ed Wood or Once upon a time in mexico, (as your second johnny depp movie) you won't get to good of an impression.

This movie made me look at someone that was different and say''there's nothing wrong with them.'' This movie gave thrills and spills. Even though this movie made me cry it was really inlightening.

This Allegorical tale about judgment and selective hearing is sure to haunt you and charm you. Edward's story id told with superb acting and passion. This funny/sad film is (in my opinion) Tim Burton's best!

Edward Scissorhands is based on the story starring Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder. An inventor decided to make a man, but died before Edward, the man he invented, could have hands. Edward was left with scissors for hands. This movie is a very great movie. It has a mixture of love scenes, also, some funny parts, and some sad. I like this mainly because of Johnny Depp is in it. Also, it has a mixture of emotions.

Edward is portrayed as a real outsider trying to belong, but once you've seen the whole movie, for women especially, you see this handsome, sweet gentle man and you just fall in love with him!

This moved me in a way few other movies have. The meaning of the movie is profound. The performances by Johhny Depp and Winona Ryder are absolutely phenomenal. The imagery is moving in this very beautiful movie. It is so emotional and wonderful. I highly recommend it.

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!

I remember watching this movie as a little kid,maybe 8-years-old,and I vividly remember the part where Edward is sitting alone on a curb when the town is searching for him and a shaggy dog comes and sits next to him,Edward reaches over and clips the hair from the dog's eyes,and the dog licks him in the face,that part made me really sad,I almost cried at the end. And Johnny Depp is so young in this movie compared to the deep tan and bumbling words in Pirates of the Carribian,this movie brings out the softer innocent side of the A-list badboy Depp,bolth movies he did an astounding job!I absolutly love him! I know he's in alot of Tim Burton's films,a good actor for them indeed!

i saw edward scissorhands as a young child, and thought it was great.but now that im older and into movies, i appreciate it more. never has a movie been funny, sad, happy,etc. all mixed up with tim burton's dark filmmaking. and YES it made me cry, with just two little words at the end, nothing has ever moved me more than this movie,its perfect!

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.

Tim Burton's second best film, the first being Nightmare Before Christmas. This film captures anti-social, depressed, feel like you're going to destroy everything individual. This is Tim Burton's most involved film. The DVD is widescreen, great sound and a cool menu in which a book folds out to a castle. If you're a Tim Burton fan, I highly recommend you buy this DVD.
