Adam and Barbara are a normal couple...who happen to be dead. They have given their precious time to decorate their house and make it their own, but unfortunately a family is moving in, and not quietly. Adam and Barbara try to scare them out, but end up becoming the main attraction to the money making family. They call upon Beetlejuice to help, but Beetlejuice has more in mind than just helping.Written by
When Barbara is frustrated after failing to scare the Deetz's, she says to Adam: "What's the good of being a ghost if you can't frighten people away?" When she says this Mr. Deetz is reading a magazine with an add on the back that states: "Hands-On Experience Required." This is a subtle allusion to the importance of Beetlejuice in the film's plot, and something the Maitland's don't have, due to their being recently deceased. See more »

When the Geffen Company logo appears, it is accompanied by a ghoulish version of the Banana Boat song (sung by the film's composer Danny Elfman). See more »
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.
