PG-13 | | Drama, Fantasy, Romance
An artificial man, who was incompletely constructed and has scissors for hands, leads a solitary life. Then one day, a suburban lady meets him and introduces him to her world.
When Edward is cutting the neighborhood ladies' hair, the instrumental music playing sounds similar to a medley from Sweeney Todd, though not actually a direct sample. Tim Burton and Johnny Depp later did the actual Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007) in 2007.
Snuggle in, sweetie. It's cold out there.
Granddaughter: Why is it snowing, Grandma? Where does it come from?
Kim: Oh, that's a long story, sweetheart...
Peggy's glasses while she puts cream on Edward's face to fix his scars.
The 20th Century Fox logo is shaded dark winter blue and is accompanied by Edward's snowfall.
In order to secure a PG certificate in the UK the cinema version was cut by 8 secs to edit some violence during the climactic fight. A shot of Edward being kicked in the stomach was removed and his beating with the crowbar was reduced from 8 blows to 2. The video/DVD versions feature the same print with the cuts now lengthened to 15 secs. The cuts were fully waived by the BBFC for the upgraded 12-rated 2007 DVD release.
