Once again I'm not sure exactly how to start this comment other than to praise Tim Burton, Beetlejuice is a movie that was based on his idea and is still remembered to this very day. He picked a great leading male, Michael Keaton as well as to pick a very strong cast that turned into what could have been a total flop into a cult classic that will be remembered for ages to come. Beetlejuice is a very strange movie that explores life after death, turning into a ghost and having to accept that you died, now move on. But what if there was one ghost who maybe had too much fun and just wanted <more>
to rock the living world? That's what Beetlejuice is about, the one zombie that you'd love to party with once but then ignore at the next party he's invited too.Barbara and Adam Maitland decide to spend their vacation decorating their idyllic New England country home. Upon returning from the trip to town, however, Barbara swerves to avoid a dog wandering the roadway. The couple's vehicle crashes through a covered bridge and plunges into the river below, killing Barbara and Adam. The couple soon returns home in spirit form and quickly come to the conclusion that they are dead. A book entitled Handbook for the Recently Deceased confirms the couple's suspicion that they are, in fact, dead. Barbara and Adam's peace is soon shattered when their house is sold and the new residents arrive from New York City. Charles Deetz, aspiring sculptor and Charles' second wife Delia, and Charles' goth daughter Lydia from his first marriage, move into the home. Juno, who informs Barbara and Adam that they must remain in the house for 125 years. If they want the Deetzes out, it is up to them to scare them away. Although the Maitlands remain invisible to Charles and Delia, their daughter Lydia can see Adam and Barbara and becomes their friend. Against the advice of Juno, the Maitlands contact the miscreant Betelgeuse, a freelance "bio-exorcist", to scare away the Deetzes, but they have their hands full now with this crazy psycho.Beetlejuice is an awesome movie, it's one of the funniest movies you'll see. I will be honest, it's a strange humor as it's a dark comedy, but it's all good. Seriously Michael Keaton is such a great comedic actor, he was the perfect choice, he brought the right amount of cockiness and comedy to the role. Also Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin had great chemistry as well as the perfect Leave it to Beaver-esquire type of couple that has a hard time accepting their world as the afterlife. Jeffrey Jones, Catherine O'Hara and Winona Ryder were perfect as the Deetzes, quite disturbing and awkward. I highly recommend this movie if you get the chance to see it, it's a great comedy classic.10/10
AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER, EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT! that's not just a quote (by Quinoa1984)
This is one of Tim Burton's best films. His sophomore effort shows the story of a married couple the Maitlands played with good degree by Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis who die accidentally off a bridge and wind up the target for a upper-class family including a young yet well played Winona Ryder and a weird yet scary ghost with the most named Beetleguise or Beetlejuice in a scene of laughs played to immense complexity by Michael Keaton. Sure this plot may sound a little anti-climactic being mainly gags and not really a focused story, but so what? In a film where you see sandworms <more>
from saturn, shrimps that attach after calypso and a nut who has seen the exorcist 167 time insert quote here , why bother with a plot. Great fun every time I watch. Reccomendable to anyone.
You gotta figure that only Tim Burton could come up with this! An ultra-zany story of rural couple Adam Alec Baldwin and Barbara Maitland Geena Davis , who accidentally get killed and witness a tasteless couple moving into their house, forcing them to hire "bio-exorcist" Beetle Juice Michael Keaton , is truly something else. With a new joke almost every minute, the movie never gets dull. And how about that soundtrack? "Day-O" in the most morbid comedy ever? Yep, it's all here. Great support from Catherine O'Hara and Jeffrey Jones as the tasteless couple, Winona <more>
Ryder as their disaffected daughter Lydia, and Sylvia Sidney as afterlife counselor Juno, make this one of the coolest movies of 1988!
"Go ahead...Make my millennium" (by native_girl333)
Beetle Juice... Beetle Juice... Do you have the guts to say it three times? Adam Alec Baldwin and Barbara Geena Davis are a newly wed couple but unfortunately an accident takes their lives. Their house is sold and Adam and Barbara are trying to scare the new owners away. They are unsuccessful. They seek help from exorcist, Beetlejuice Michael Keaton who is specialized in people. However Beetlejuice has his own plans...The world of Tim Burton is fantastic, colorful and full with extraordinary creatures. The main couples visit in a office in afterlife is great fun. Michael Keaton is <more>
having his own jubilation in the role of Beetlejuice. Once Keaton has had a chance to be a little bit gross and pervert. Winona Ryder is good in her role as dark and Gothic Lydia. Again Burton used his regular stars. The careers of Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin would ignite big a couple of years later."Beetle Juice" is vivid, colorful, funny and represents something different in the comedy scene.
BEETLE JUICE is one of the funniest and most odd "family" films ever to have been made. There are pretty awesome special effects at work sand worms, Beetle Snake, and a scene where Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin compete to see who can make a scarier face , tons of make-up, some legitimately eerie moments, and a hilarious performance by Keaton as the troublesome everyman ghost, Beetle Juice.Classic Tim Burton combining humor and scares, the morbid and the silly, and the bizarre visual flair we've all come to know and love. Danny Elfman, as usual, makes the film sound just right, <more>
and Harry Belafonte's "Banana Boat Song" is used perfectly. Twice.There's some blood and some creepy stuff going around: plenty of dead bodies mostly doing and saying funny stuff with all sorts of ailments, constant talk of the afterlife, some risqué jokes that will most likely go over the brow of your ten year old, and one of the best usages of the "F" word in cinema history.Everything about the film is exceptional, and if you like your horror with some humor, look no further.
Tim Burton Batman, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street directs some good actors in a great and humorous horror comedy. Adam Alec Baldwin and Barbara Geena Davis are newlyweds. They live in a big house on a hill outside a town. One day they drive home after collecting something and die from falling off a bridge in their car and drowning. Somehow they came back, and then they discovered that they were dead. Now that they are dead their house has been bought by a new family. Delia Catherine O'Hara and <more>
Charles Jeffrey Jones with their daughter Lydia Winona Ryder . Adam and Barbara are trying everything to get the family out of their house. Then they find a doorway to the dead world, it's here where they get advice from Juno Sylvia Sidney . But they don't take her advice, they decide to let out a "bio exorcist" called Beetlegeuse/juice Michael Keaton . When he is let out of his grave he causes all sorts of trouble for the newlyweds and the family. It won the Oscar for Best Makeup, and it was nominated the BAFTAs Best Make Up Artist and Best Special Effects. It was number 41 on The 100 Greatest Family Films it's a 15! , and it was number 88 on 100 Years, 100 Laughs. Very good!
It may take two or three viewings to warm up to "Beetlejuice". It has a kooky, cockeyed sensibility and a rhythm that is by turns easy, lazy and frenetic. A charming couple in New England die and come back to their beloved home as ghosts, determined to rid the place of the horrendous new tenants. Possibly the most benign and engaging performance ever by Alec Baldwin; Geena Davis, Winona Ryder and Sylvia Sidney are also very appealing. The new couple from New York who take over the house Jeffrey Jones and Catherine O'Hara aren't as well written or thought-out as the other <more>
characters and some of their bemused, dry-ice comic lines take a few seconds to reach you. Of course, there's Michael Keaton, wildly comic as Betelgeuse. I recall hearing comments back in 1988 that Keaton wasn't around enough to make the picture worthwhile, but that's only if you watch the film for the fast quips and sight-gags. Keaton is truly wonderful, but he's also bombastic, and I felt there was just enough of him to satisfy--it's really not his story anyway, it belongs to Baldwin and Davis; Betelgeuse is used as a horny, vulgar punchline. Director Tim Burton is very careful not to overload the movie with raunch; he is surprisingly careful in setting up this story, and he works magic within a dubious scenario: a comic fantasy about dead folks which ultimately celebrates life. ***1/2 from ****
Tim Burton's Beetlejuice is a great film. The director was given free reign to make his own film visually and it is great. The casting is good, but the standout is Michael Keaton. Keaton is absolutely hilarious in the title role. This movie is very funny and well done.
Great Dark Comedy (by sblair80)
This is a classic example of Tim Burton's macabre humor and fantastic mind. Beetlejuice puts you into a world where both the "Living and the Dead" come together. The Maitland's Baldwin and Davis are a happy married couple living in a sleepy Conneticut town and who are getting nestled in for their vacation together at home. The peace and quiet comes to a tragic end when they meet their deaths in a car accident. Now as ghosts, they witness their beloved home being taken over buy New York yuppies and make an unlikely alliance with the families daughter Ryder . To make sense <more>
of what to do in the after life, the Maitland's look to seek the aid of Beetlejuice! The "Ghost with the Most". From there, everything turns into a hilarious and horrific adventure where Micheal Keaton shines with his comedic talents. This movie is a must for any horror and comedy fan, and a no brainier for Tim Burton fans out there.
