I guess I do have one other minor quibble, and that was the casting of a boy in the role of Pirelli's assistant.

Burton employs his accustomed darkness to the already twisted material, making the story even creepierthe film allows Burton to expand portions of the story that were only touched upon on stage, particularly the back story of Benjamin, Lucy, and the Judge which makes the return of the clearly demented Todd much more plausible.
