"Burton cranks up the visual comedy of the character's self-mythology and lets it rip, sometimes to joyously dizzy effect."
USA Today - 01/13/2004
"[T]he movie gets better as it goes, as Steve Buscemi and Helena Bonham Carter show up and the story works its way to a finale that can make grown men sniffle."
Chicago Sun-Times - 12/24/2003
"[A] great-looking film, with a fantastical visual style that could be called Felliniesque if Burton had not by now earned the right to the adjective Burtonesque."
