Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good As animated films go, this is easily the best of a weak year, and now that Burton has achieved a degree of mainstream success with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, maybe audiences will flock to see this during the pre-trick or treat season.
USA TodayFull Review Very Good Corpse Bride is an unexpectedly touching celebration of love told in a quirky and inventive style.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 140 moviegoer opinions. GREAT OPINIONS! Especially considering this is a very strange, Tim Burton, animated movie. It's obvious that "Corpse Bride" has a much wider appeal than I would have expected. I fully expected the kids and teens to rate it very high, but when you get such high opinions from the adults, it's truly an exceptional movie. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND "CORPSE BRIDE" TO EVERYONE! DON'T MISS IT!
