how awesome is beetlejuice?

Please, help me settle an argument with a few friends who just watched Beetlejuice for the first time.

They did not like it.

I love it.

They found it in my collection amongst other such classics as Encino Man, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and this little gem, Sands of Oblivion. I’ve yet to add Weekend at Bernie’s II to my astounding menagerie of cinematic hits, but arguably, Beetlejuice is so damn fantastic is negates the need for additional necro-partying.

I mean, come on! Beetlejuice (I’ve said it three times now!) launched a television cartoon spin-off AND the career of Tim Burton AND a late-eighties calypso revival!

What else do you want?!
