The Corpse Bride is a creative, darkly comical take on what feels like a traditional ghost story. It's amusing, but also somewhat ignorable. When compared to some more masterful pieces and ridiculously innovative tales we've become accustom to seeing from Tim Burton, it falls flat.
This is an excellent example of Tim Burton getting comfortable in his style. Everything about this movie is drenched in his style. Which, while it certainly not a bad thing, it would have been nice to see him venture a bit further out of his comfort zone.
