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
Originally Michael Keaton refused the role because he "just didn't get it." Eventually however he came around after meeting Tim Burton and seeing "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure." See more »

You've read our book?
You can follow it?
Yeah. Why were you guys creeping around in Delia's bedroom?
We were trying to scare your mother.
Stepmother. Anyway, you can't scare her. She's sleeping with Prince Valium tonight.

In 1999, the film was re-released on VHS in the US with clamshell packaging. There are a few cuts to profanity in this release to make the film more family friendly: The barber in front of Adam's shop recounts an incident with a customer who had "hair down to his goddamn shoulders" it is altered to "hair down to his damn shoulders" using poor dubbing. Also the instance when Betelgeuse yells out "Nice fucking model!" and grabs his crotch is cut out. So after he kicks down the tree the next shot shows Adam putting it back up in the model. No other home video releases feature these cuts. See more »
Only Tim Burton could have created something as dark, bizarre, creepy and hilarious all at the same time. This is the case with Beetlejuice, just a funny, very well made movie that never gets old.
One thing I really like about this movie is the awesome use of practical effects and makeup. The people in charge of this really did a great job that I believe should always be appreciated in a film. Also, Michael Keaton in this movie: beyond hilarious. I'm giving the movie an 8/10 because it doesn't always make sense and I know it's not supposed to but there are a few things in the movie that just don't really add up. But that doesn't take away the fact that this is a very fun movie that I often like to watch.
Beetlejuice is is just a fun crazy time.
