* Did the police really just take Kim's word for it that Edward and Jim were dead and never go investigate the actual crime scene?

*Peg and Bill's son was shown to have a bunk bed, and Bill had a pull out sofa bed in his den. Why stick the guy with blades on his hands on a waterbed?

* This troper wonders, even though, it was obviously never done to keep the film going, why did they never just you know blunt/ cut a majority of the blades on his digits and place some kind of rubber/latex "tips"? if you look closely at his hands there are some joints in his "fingers" so simply reducing the size and shape probably would of made the whole "not cutting everything to shreds" thing a whole load more manageable.

** What's really odd is that the inventor was able to design a synthetic skin that could heal and scar, but saved something as simple and practical as fingers for last.

*** I would say he didn't have a penis. It would not be very wise to give your blade-handed robot a penis before you gave it hands.

** Arguably yes. The mad scientist wished to make a replica of a man he would consider his son, so it would be odd if he left something out.
*** ...Really? I mean, why would he think to add that on? Unless he's planning for Edward to then reproduce (and given that its unlikely he'd have the means to add in robot-DNA somehow, that's unlikely to ever be possible, even in a world where its possible to make a sentient scissor-handed robot), then I'd think it'd be far more odd for him to decide to give his robot son a penis.

Added DiffLines:

** There's a PornParody of the film, ''Edward Penishands''. Obviously some people find Edward sexually attractive (& he ''is'' played by Johnny Depp...).

** She didn't want people knocking at his door should they catch her sneaking off to the mansion. Aside from that, she said to her grand daughter that she wanted Edward to remember her as she was when he met her. After seeing his "father" die of old age, he probably couldn't bare seeing the same happening to Kim.

to:

** As added to the YMMV page, the 'Burton on Burton' book of collected interviews published in the 90's suggests that, for Burton, there ''is'' a small element of revenge fantasy in that scene, perhaps making it slightly less palatable. Jim's still a sadistic creep who nearly mowed down Kim's brother, probably could have killed her, and tried to kill Edward, but even so.
