Beetlejuice

Synopsis

WEIRDLY YOUNG ALEC BALDWIN and WERIDLY NOT-THAT-DIFFERENT GEENA DAVIS die, and discover that the AFTERLIFE was written by TIM BURTON. And that they have to spend it with CUTE GOTH WINONA RYDER and CRAZY LECHEROUS BATMAN, which, you know, doesn’t really sound too bad?

I LOVE these reviews!
Why not pop round our place so you can review a film in a different setting – see if it has any effect on the style…

Aside from the babysitting issue, you’re on 🙂 I should warn you that booze is an essential ingredient to these (as if you hadn’t figured that out already).

Another FRbtN on its way tonight!
