While the Japanese children are waiting to enter the Tokyo candy store, all of the text on the Wonka bars is written in traditional Hirgana. However, when the children enter the store, some Wonka bars are seen with the logo now written in English. These bars still retain the flavor and Golden Ticket contest announcement written in Hirgana, though. 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.

The original Willy Wonka left things unsaid for us, the Burton remake beats us over the head with elements because we must be too stupid to understand anything. Why does Charlie have to have a dad in the remake? Would it hurt society if he didn't? There is no warmth to the film or the characters. I hated the weird voiced and, at times, mean spirited Wonka. The oompa loompas were terrible and it seemed lazy to me by duplicating one person. I can't go on because I don't remember the other things that bothered me and there is no way that I can put myself through that poor excuse for a movie to refresh my memory. I am trying to repress that part of my memory. Awful.
