This movie was overall incredible. This is my favorite movie, and I watch it constantly. A man with scissors as hands is such a wild and odd concept, I never expected it to be anywhere near as moving as it was. All of Tim Burton's films are wonderful, (especially The Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice) but Edward Scissorhands tops them all. Major kudos to Tim Burton.
After making a total of zero sales, local Avon represenative Peg Boggs(Diane Wiest) decides to attempt a sale at the Gothic castle at the top of a mountain, looming over a cheerful Suburbia neighborhood. Peg soon discovers that no ordinary man lives in the castle, but an unfinished creation named Edward(Johnny Depp), who has lived his life with scissors replacing his fingers. The glass-half-full Peg takes him to her home, where he is warmly welcomed by Peg's family and friends.
Edward soon begins to discover the rich life of civilization, where he flaunts his talents in topiaries and dog-trimmings, while Peg plasters his face with her Avon cosmetics. He also meets Kim(Winona Ryder), Peg's daughter, who fills him with love and desire. But things take a turn for the worse, and the neighbors that once loved him suddenly reject his differences.
This movie contrasts comedic scenes ("I have a doctor friend that might be able to help you.") with melancholy, sad acts ("Hold me..." "I can't.") I honestly can't get enough of this movie. If it doesn't capture your heart and mind right away, you need emotional development. This movie pulls you into it's storyline and makes for a great classic. Watch it even if it doesn't sound very good. Overall a triumph.
