I love the movie I had to watch it for school and do a 300 word assignment on it. It was so much fun, they are all such good actors.

Ashley (10 out of 10 )
Great movie!

Matthew Foster (10 out of 10 )
I loved this movie! I kept on getting it and watching it over and over. Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors, but he did a wonderful job. But a problem was that they left out talking on the script but I loved the special effects and the music made me cry! Marvellous movie.

Tyler (5 out of 10 )
Pretty ok movie I guess. Not Johnny Depp's best but still alright.

Misty (1 out of 10 )
I agree. The script was a huge disappointment.

JohnnyLover (10 out of 10 )
I love Edward Scissorhands so much, it's funny at the start, gets sadder in the middle and then makes me cry at the end. I also think Edward is HOT! I love this and all of Johnny's films so much, wicked!

sadie (10 out of 10 )
I loved this movie, it made me cry! I think they should have got together i nthe end. The film was absolutely superb, I give it ten out of ten. Brilliant!

Kaorii (10 out of 10 )
Oh my goodness! This movie is THE BEST! I love it so much. I've seen it 6 times before but I still cry everytime I see it. Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder were AWESOME, not just because Johnny is really cute either. Danny Elfman's music is great and Tim Burton did a wonderful job with this film. See it!

Stacii (10 out of 10 )
I loved this movie! Edward Scissorhands is gorgeous. I watch it all the time! Best film ever and good script.

kirsty (10 out of 10 )
I love this film, one of the best I've seen. Love Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, think they're both great.

lauren (10 out of 10 )
Fabulous movie. Everyone thinks it's sad, but it is HILARIOUS! I laughed my head off. Johnny Depp, you are the coolest guy in the world. Tim Burton usually makes crap movies but this one I loved. Rented it and watched it with my friend literally ten times in a week. "THENK YOU" ha! Cinematography is cool too.

Chris (10 out of 10 )
I loved this movie. I love all of Tim Burton's movies! The only part I didn't like is Old Kim's voice in the beginning. It kind of scared me. In surround sound. In a dark living room with my girlfriend. God it gives me chills still.

Gem (10 out of 10 )
I love Edward scissor hands THE MOST. I just spent a lesson watching it. Because I can! And I'm getting a poster for the back of my door because Edward is a beautiful "Uncommonly Gentleman"!

Stacey (9 out of 10 )
Very funny!

Ellie (10 out of 10 )
How could you not give in 10 stars? It's the best movie ever! Johnny is so cute.

hailey (10 out of 10 )
The music makes me cry and the ending makes me cry. Great Tim Burton movie and great cast, especially Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder.

Script Critic 12 (10 out of 10 )

This film rocks my socks.

hailey (10 out of 10 )
I love this movie! I watch it every day I can. It makes me cry at the end. One of tim burton's best.

tony (4 out of 10 )
Creeped me out.

Brittney (10 out of 10 )
I LOVE the movie. I only saw it once, like last tuesday and it's friday now. I'm 100% going to buy it SOON. Winona and Johnny both work well with Tim (both worked with him more than once). I'm so glad Tim has such a different way of seeing things. Anyway, I'm rambling. Love the movie, the script was ok. I like the sheep part.

katty (10 out of 10 )
How could it creep you out? It is so sweet. I love edward scissorhands and I feel so sorry for him. I hate the girl's boyfriend though, he is so mean.

alexis (10 out of 10 )
I loved it! It was something everyone could relate to and johnny depp was wonderful.

emily (10 out of 10 )
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is good to finally show others what it is like to be different. I loved how the music highlighted the different scenes in the movie.

Sarah (10 out of 10 )
This is one of my favorite movies ever made. It's well created and to me, it's considered a classic fairy tale. Johnny portrayed a vulnerable character that a lot of people could relate to.

Josh (2 out of 10 )
It was horribly scripted. The movie was so boring, I fell asleep. There were a few interesting parts but overall, the movie sucked.

Finnbarr (7 out of 10 )
What is with this script? No scene transitions, no setting descriptions, I mean the dialogue sounds great but still, I think this is a transcript someone has written.

Katie (10 out of 10 )
I love Johnny Depp and Tim Burton. The movies are always amazing when they work together. I just watched Edward Scissorhands yesterday and fricking loved it. It was funny in the beginning but was really sad at the end. And he was so mysterious and I could totally relate to him being sad and enraged on the inside but totally calm on the out.

Steph (10 out of 10 )
I think Johnny Depp has done such a fantastic job playing Edward Scissorhands. He's so hot, handsome and very attractive. He even has such cool hair. Yippee for him.

danielcwr (3 out of 10 )
Potato, they didn't have a potato in the film. A film without a potato just isn't worth my time.

shabnam (10 out of 10 )
I think that Johnny really shows his art in this movie and of course Tim directed it very good.
