Tim Burton's Corpse Bride

Goth kids around the world can breathe a collective sigh of relief. They've finally got something to obsess over, other than Nightmare Before Christmas. Besotted to the gills with Edgar Allan Poe, Tim Burton has unleashed another macabre musical. Johnny Depp voices a shy 19th-century pianist nervous over his upcoming arranged nuptials to the daughter of a snooty rich family. Thanks to a grim misunderstanding, though, our boy finds himself married to the titular dead gal. The film's design is wondrous and--despite all the grisly trappings--loaded with whimsy and light humor. 76 minutes PG.
