Johnny Depp, Wynona Ryder, Dianne Wiest and Vincent Price star in this unforgettable fairy tale from Tim Burton. Once upon a time, a kindly inventor created a charming young man named Edward. But the inventor died before he finished Edward, who had sharp metal shears for hands. Edward was sad and alone until a kind Avon lady invited him to live with her family in the fantastical land of Suburbia.

It remains curiously hollow.

Mr. Burton invests awe-inspiring ingenuity into the process of reinventing something very small.

Dark yet sweet underdog tale for older kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that there is sporadic violence in Edward Scissorhands. Aside from a woman attempting to seduce Edward wearing a lace bra (she mounts Edward while he is on a chair and attempts to use his scissors to cut off her clothes), sexuality is limited to courting rituals (kissing and hugging). Some of the garish set pieces, like Edward's haunted mansion, and the title character, with mean-looking, scissors for fingers, may be terrifying for young children. There is a mention of rape.
