Goofs

After Mike Teavee gets shrunk by the TV ray, Willy Wonka orders him and his father to the taffy puller room. Immediately afterward, Wonka has a very short conversation with Charlie and Grandpa Joe, they get into the elevator, and blast through the roof. They then fly down over the factory entrance, where Mike Teavee is already stretched and leaving the building, just 2-3 minutes after Wonka had given the taffy-pulling order. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: This is a story of an ordinary little boy named Charlie Bucket. He was not faster, or stronger, or more clever than other children. His family was not rich or powerful or well-connected; in fact, they barely had enough to eat. Charlie Bucket was the luckiest boy in the entire world. He just didn't know it yet.

Brilliant!
11 July 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in Antwerp at a sponsored movie event on the 4th of July.... I was a bit reluctant to go and watch this movie but I'm glad I did! Johnny Depp is a great Willy Wonka! I never thought that there would be a version that could match or even beat the original, but this one certainly has exceeded my expectations.... The film is hilarious, speaking as an adult, I wonder how the youth responds to this, but I rate this movie 8 out of 10 stars!

For those of you expecting a copy of the original with new actors, you'll be surprised how original this version is, go and bring your entire family with you! I'm sorry for the fact that this comment looks a bit like a commercial, but I'm really enthusiastic about this flick!
