Director: Tim Burton

Stars: Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keaton

 BEETLEJUICE is still one of my all time favourite comedies.  Alec Baldwin  and Geena Davis played recently deceased ghosts who seek the help of BeetleJuice (Keaton) a “bio-exorcist” to remove the new owners of their house.

Keaton was just brilliant in his performance of BeetleJuice and had me “LOL”.  A year later Keaton played Batman in Tim Burton’s version. (1989)

There are so many laugh out loud moments in BeetleJuice but my favourite was the dinner scene where all the guests became possessed and found them themselves performing Day-O (The Banana Boat Song) – Harry Belafonte.

(the end still makes me jump)
