    It's two hours of your life wasted, time once spent that can never be regained. Don't go. Don't do it. [30 Mar 1988] show more

    So original that it'll be years before a major filmmaker attempts another one. We're talking black-belt cult-movie status here. [30 Mar 1988] show more

    For all the film's popped eyeballs and severed limbs, Beetlejuice retains an innocence that makes the grotesque humor very appealing. Burton has captured the sweet ghoulishness of a 12-year-old pouring over horror comics, dreaming of the greatest Halloween costume ever invented. [30 Mar 1988] show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Gets off to a start that's so charming it never lives it down. The movie is all anticlimax once we realize it's going to be about gimmicks, not characters. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The screenplay is foolish and Michael Keaton overplays the title role badly, but director Tim Burton gives the comedy a heap of visual imagination. [22 Apr 1988] show more

    By the time this irresistible treat is over, it has created some of the funniest moments and most inspired visual humor and design we may expect to experience at the movies all year. [30 Mar 1988] show more

    Hilarious…The joy of Beetlejuice is its completely bizarre -- but perfectly realized -- view of the world, a la Gary Larson's "The Far Side," or "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." [1 Apr 1988] show more

    Beetlejuice means something good: that imaginative artists can bring a fading genre back from the dead. [11 Apr 1988] show more

    Not since "Ghostbusters" have the spirits been so uplifting. [30 Mar 1988] show more

    A classic and was entertaing and funny. You would always think Horror/Comedy is a good mix. Very good Burton film!
