Thanks to the carelessness of a cute little dog, newlyweds Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin are killed in a freak auto accident. Upon arriving in the outer offices of Heaven, the couple finds that, thanks to a century's worth of bureaucratic red tape, they're on a long celestial waiting list. Before they can earn their wings, Davis and Baldwin must occupy their old house as ghosts for the next fifty years. Alas, the house is now owned by insufferable yuppies Catherine O'Hara and Jeffrey Jones. Horrified at the prospect of sharing space with these obnoxious interlopers, Davis and Baldwin do their best to scare O'Hara and Jones away, but their house-haunting skills are pathetic at best. In desperation, the ghostly couple engage the services of a veteran scaremeister: a yellow-haired, snaggle-toothed, profane, flatulent "gonzo" spirit named Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton). The problem: Beetlejuice cannot be trusted-especially when he falls in love with O'Hara and Jones' gloomy, black-clad teenaged daughter Winona Ryder. Beetlejuice producer David Geffen, director Tim Burton, and composer Danny Elfman were also involved in an animated TV-series spin-off.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: [The] actors, not surprisingly, are limited by the stupidity of their material.
Fresh: Beetlejuice means something good: that imaginative artists can bring a fading genre back from the dead.
Fresh: Luckily, Keaton pops up from his grave to liven things up when the antics pitting the good ghosts against the intruders become a trite cat & mouse game.
Fresh: The joy of Beetlejuice is its completely bizarre -- but perfectly realized -- view of the world.
Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice!
Now this is one movie that Tim Burton directed that is hilarious as heck. And it features the ghost with the most, Beetlejuice himself.
I LOVE TIM BURTON!!
Beetlejuice is a pheonmenal movie and I love Tim Burton, You have to buy/rent this movie =D
This movie is in a world of it's own - literally. Tim shares his great imagination with us, like he does in mostly every one of his fantastic movies. Love it!
