Depp's a young man created by loony scientist Price, who dies before he can attach hands to his boy-creature. Then the boy is rescued from his lonely existence outside of suburbia by an ingratiating Avon lady. With scissors in place of hands, he has more trouble fitting into suburbia than would most new kids on the block, and he struggles with being different and lonely in a cardboard-cutout world. Visually captivating fairy tale full of splash and color, however predictable the Hollywood-prefab denouement.

Edward Scissorhands
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

Edward Scissorhands came out in 1990 with a running time of 100 minutes. This film can be purchased on VHS and DVD. Edward Scissorhands has a mixture of fantasy, comedy, drama and romance. Johnny Depp (as Edward Scissorhands), Winona Ryder (as Kim) and Dianne Wiest (as Peg) star in this fun film. Edward was created by an inventor and died before he could finish him. Poor Edward was left with scissors as hands instead of actual hands. Peg finds Edward and takes him home to stay with her and her family. Edward becomes pretty popular with the towns people. He finds he is talented in cutting hair and hedges on bushes. Edward soon falls for Peg’s teenage daughter, Kim. When Edward gets framed for a robbery, he doesn’t feel wanted in the town. So he feels the best thing to do is head back to the mansion where he originally came from. I really enjoy this movie. Johnny Depp does a very good job. I used to watch this movie all the time when it first came out.
