Once upon a time in a castle high on a hill lived an inventor whose greatest creation was named Edward. Although Edward had an irresistible charm, he wasn't quite perfect. The inventor's sudden death left him unfinished, with sharp shears of metal for hands. Edward lived alone in the darkness until one day a kind Avon lady took him home to live with her family. So began Edward's fantastical adventures in a pastel paradise known as Suburbia.

A man with scissors for hands is taken in by a suburban family.

The style and the sense of humor are fun (and of course Tim Burton has been trying and failing to recapture it for more than two decades). The attempt to force drama in the second half is tedious.
