Great film. Good for everyone. Loved Carl. No Violence. Wish there were more films like this.

The most curious thing about this magical-realist how thin and soft it is, how unpersuasive and ultimately forgettable even its most strenuous inventions turn out to be. Full Review

A misfire. The film that wants to be lighter than air instead crashes to earth with the swiftness of a concrete parachute. Full Review

There's delight to be had from watching Burton conjure up one fantastical Edward-inspired scenario after another. Full Review
Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle
A long-winded indulgence in tear-and-a-smile whimsy, elevated above the merely irritating and saccharine by compelling art direction. Full Review
Mike Clark
USA Today
Has enough tasty bait to satisfy an array of moviegoers: Burton fans, Albert Finney fans, fans of tall tales well spun by experts and fans of movies that don't look like any other. Full Review
