Corpse Bride is a film about a man who unwittingly says his vows to a deceased woman and she arises from her grave to seal the deal in this "lively" animated musical movie by Tim Burton. There is also a dark suitor who seeks to gain the hand of a bride and kill her to gain a wealthy dowry, or so he thinks. Not really as captivating as A Nightmare Before Christmas, but it still has heart, an interesting cast, and some tunes that are fun, performed by spiders, skeletons and possibly historical figures from the past. See it before it disappears

Corpse Bride mistake picture

Audio problem: In the scene where Victor plays the piano for the first time in the movie, we hear him playing long, sustained notes, which obviously need to be played with a pedal down. However, he doesn't use the sustain pedal. What's more strange is, the piano does not even have a sustain pedal.

Maudeline Everglot: Hmpf! As if that has anything to do with marriage. Do you suppose your father and I like each other?

More trivia for Corpse Bride

Question: In one of the extras, Tim Burton says that he got the idea for Corpse Bride from a story. He said just that it was just a few paragraphs, but what is the story that he is talking about?

Answer: It's a 19th century Russian Jewish folk-tale - the story starts quite similarly, with the lead character saying his vows while putting the ring on what he believes to be a stick. The tale generally finishes with the rabbis annulling the marriage and the living bride vowing to honour the memory of the corpse bride throughout her marriage - which ties into the Jewish tradition of honouring the dead through the lives of the living.
