Set back in the late 1800s in a Victorian village, a man and woman by the names of Victor Van Dort and Victoria Everglot are betrothed because the Everglots need the money or else they'll be living on the streets and the Van Dorts want to be high in society. But when things go wrong at the wedding rehearsal, Victor goes into the woods to practice his vows. Just as soon as he gets them right, he finds himself married to Emily, the corpse bride. While Victoria waits on the other side, there's a rich newcomer that may take Victor's place. So two brides, one groom, who will Victor pick? Written by

During "According to Plan" when Maudelaine Everglot opens the safe, you see she is wearing a gold wedding ring. However, when she closes it, the ring is gone. It reappears later. The same thing happens to Nell Van Dort. In one shot she has her ring on but in the next it's gone. See more »

i just saw this movie at the Toronto film festival. Tim Burton, as with
most of his movies, makes the setting and visuals the most important
part. And what a beautiful movie it was, the animation was astounding.
You could tell that each frame was tirelessly worked on in order to
make each little piece have its own distinct look. The plot is
unimportant, and cliché, but that doesn't matter. This movie shouldn't
be watched for the storyline. The voice acting was very convincing,
especially the lead, Johnny Depp, who does a great job as the shy,
clumsy Victor. The only character i really didn't think was needed was
the worm, who was just included just for some childish comedic relief,
which took away from the dark mood of the picture. Though not as
enjoyable as "Nightmare Before Christmas" it still was a very good
animated movie. 8.5/10
