30 Date Movies That'll Get You Laid

Edward Scissorhands (1990)

Stars: Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder

Edward Scissorhands represents what pop culture has tried to condition women to want: danger and kindness. He's dangerous in that he was given freakin' scissors for hands. And yet if you can get past these lethal appendages, he's sweet and naive—even childlike. This is you. All your arrogance, your anger, your emotional inaccessibility, your general dickishness—these things are not your fault. These are the scissors society gave you instead of hands. She knows that, and she has the feeling that it's up to her, like Kim (Ryder) in the movie, to get past those scissor-hands and release the real you.
