Tim Burton's idea of a comedy.  Michael Keaton, as Betelgeuse, reminds me so much of my obnoxious uncle that I could barely get through the film.  Winona Ryder became wildly recognized with this movie, which is another unfortunate event that surrounded it.  Then there's Geena Davis.  What can a person say about Geena Davis, other than, "I'm sure glad HER 15 minutes are up!"?  There are a few semi-alright jokes, and the usual gothy style Burton directing, which I kind of dig; but, for the most part, this movie sucks from start to finish, and the casting director should be shot.

I'd give it 5 Juicy squirts out of a possible 10
