Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: inspiring, wacky, and infused with Burton's unique romanticism suffused with, but not subsumed by, a gothic sensibility
- Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: This full-length animated movie was shot in stop motion, with all the febrile, twittery fascination that the medium exerts; it has a magic-toy shop feeling, with unexpected objects stuttering into life.
- Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Tuesday, December 3, 2013
Fresh: The script's non-stop momentum suits the roller-coaster photography -- and the punchy running time brings things to a close before eye-strain sets in.

I wish i knew why every girl i have dated (which i admit is not a big number) has been obsessed with this movie. i have the same kind of fascination watching my father with his hunting knife, waiting for the opportunity to use an Arby's coupon so he can viciously rip it away from the other coupons with his knife. it brings simple joy to his face so i laugh and nod and shut the hell up and eat my beef n' cheddar.
