Director Henry Selick combines stop motion with live action to produce a Tim Burton wannabe world of carnival rides and alien farm animals where those in limbo must face their subconscious fears. After a car accident leaves him in a coma, coy cartoonist Stu Miley (Brendan Fraser) gets trapped in this low-grade land of nightmares where he spends the next one and a half hours preventing Monkeybone, his annoying animated creation with a limitless libido, from obtaining the dreaded "nightmare juice." Whoopi Goldberg, the minister of death with a combustible head, and her grim reaper minions dressed in shredded toilet paper aid the animator by sending him back to the real world in the body of an athletic organ donor. Also to the rescue is Bridget Fonda, the devoted girlfriend, who conveniently works at a sleep institute. However, nothing really could save this weak Beetlejuice imitation, not even Chris Kattan's Olympic-caliber dismounts.
