Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there is sporadic violence in Edward Scissorhands. Aside from a woman attempting to seduce Edward wearing a lace bra (she mounts Edward while he is on a chair and attempts to use his scissors to cut off her clothes), sexuality is limited to courting rituals (kissing and hugging). Some of the garish set pieces, like Edward's haunted mansion, and the title character, with mean-looking, scissors for fingers, may be terrifying for young children. There is a mention of rape.

Sexual Content

A woman wears figure-hugging outfits and attempts to seduce Edward. She is seen on top of Edward wearing a lace bra, using his scissors to cut off her clothes.

Violence

Edward accidentally nips his face, then a little boy's. Edward is beaten with a stick repeatedly, and he stabs an attacker in the chest, causing him to fall out a window to his death. Mention of rape.

Language

Only three occasions of suggestive talk, one expletive.

Social Behavior

An inventive take on the ugly-duckling motif, Edward proves once again that real beauty is on the inside.

Consumerism

Mom is an Avon lady, but besides the focus on make-up and hair, film is brand-free.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Dad serves Edward a drink, after which Edward gets visibly drunk and sick.
