Based on 19 Critics
  • One of those rare films that communicates the exquisite joy of the moviemaking process. [7 October 1994, Friday, p.B]

  • Half-factual, half-fanciful and all funny, this labor of love is also unexpectedly touching. [28 September 1994, Life, p.5D]

  • What Burton has made is a film which celebrates Wood more than it mocks him, and which celebrates, too, the zany spirit of 1950s exploitation films - in which a great title, a has-been star and a lurid ad campaign were enough to get bookings for some of the oddest films ever made. show more
