Augustus' home town of Düsseldorf is shown to have old-fashioned houses with wooden frames, like in a Bavarian, Austrian or Swiss town. Düsseldorf is in Nordrhein-Westfalen, where there is no such architecture. Even more so, Düsseldorf is shown to be near a huge mountain range, of which there are none even remotely to the Ruhrgebiet, which is a rather flat landscape. See more »
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.

To be quite honest, the first make of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wasn't that much to sneeze at. With Gene Wilder playing Willy Wonka, for that time period you knew that it would be a enjoyable movie at that. But the second remake was amusing, literally. Johnny Depp's white-faced, denture wearing, womanly haircutted Willy is embarrassing to look at it in itself compared to the goofy but likable 70's Wonka. With stupid sub plots and scenes that look like hallucinations, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a terrible and embarrassing mistake of a classic musical. Gene Wilder himself told press: "Why remake a classic?". I agree 100%. Good to see in the dollar movie or rent but definitely not worth $8.95 of my hard earned money.
