"Jack Nicholson is often painful to watch as the hypochondriac writer, which is only to his credit. Depending on your mood, this film is either soppy or heartwarming - I'm inclined to think the latter."
"Eye candy. And not Johnny Depp - the visuals in this film are pretty near perfect. Tim Burton nails the creepy atmosphere so well. I'm not normally into the horror end of things, but this is amazing."
