What message do you think the film, Edward Scissorhands, gives?

For me, it is a message of isolation, prejudice and fear. The townspeople don't really understand Edward, they fear him a little, and so jump to the wrong conclusions about him. What do you think? Is it about prejudice? The integration of society? What do you take away from this movie?

That you cant change who you are, no matter how hard you try you wont always be able to fit in. Prejudice exists everywhere, there will always be something that will make you different. you just have to learn to love differnces.

to me it was just a story of not fitting in with your surroundings (generic suburbia), even if you put on your suspenders and try. :P

That people are always going to single out the guy that is different.

oh, i didnt know there is a message! haha.. i think the film was made to scare kids... if you are a naughty kid, edward will cut you into pieces!!! kidding aside, i think its about loving some1 and accepting him for who he is and not how he looks like. It's trusting some1 who is a total stranger, and believing that there is something good in him. And i think it's also about how crazy neighbors can change some1's life into a nightmare.

I recently purchased this film for my girlfriend and I hadn't seen it for a very long time. I think the main element of this film is group hysteria. When one person begins to question the behavior of the odd man out, it spiderwebs and everyone starts to agree. The film covers the topic of predjudice, isolation and the integration of society in a remarkable way. I think this movie proves something different for everyone, it's the modern day Frankenstein.
