Set back in the late 1800s in a Victorian village, a man and woman by the names of Victor Van Dort and Victoria Everglot are betrothed because the Everglots need the money or else they'll be living on the streets and the Van Dorts want to be high in society. But when things go wrong at the wedding rehearsal, Victor goes into the woods to practice his vows. Just as soon as he gets them right, he finds himself married to Emily, the corpse bride. While Victoria waits on the other side, there's a rich newcomer that may take Victor's place. So two brides, one groom, who will Victor pick?Written by

During "According to Plan" when Maudelaine Everglot opens the safe, you see she is wearing a gold wedding ring. However, when she closes it, the ring is gone. It reappears later. The same thing happens to Nell Van Dort. In one shot she has her ring on but in the next it's gone. See more »
Hear ye, hear ye, ten minutes to go 'til Van Dort's wedding rehearsal.

Emily is referred to on-screen by name, but is only credited as "Corpse Bride." See more »
This film is 100% spectacular, in my opinion. As we all know from the previews prior to the release, Johnny Depp's character must choose between his living and dead brides, essentially. To be perfectly honest, throughout most of the film, I was undecided on who I thought he'd choose and be able to work it out with. This is accounted for by wonderful story-fying and lovely screen writing! Danny Elfman is the musical genius still, not that I had any doubts.
Overall, throughout my viewing of the film, I was in awe, gales of laughter, near tears, or just plain excited! Tim Burton has done it again.
