It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
When Willy Wonka decides to let five children into his chocolate factory, he decides to release five golden tickets in five separate chocolate bars, causing complete mayhem. The tickets start to be found, with the fifth going to a very special boy, called Charlie Bucket. With his Grandpa, Charlie joins the rest of the children to experience the most amazing factory ever. But not everything goes to plan within the factory.Written by
Charlie's father works at a toothpaste factory which produces Smilex toothpaste. "Smylex" is also the name of the poisonous gas concocted by The Joker in Batman (1989), also directed by Tim Burton. See more »
When they are showing the winners of the 3rd and 4th golden ticket winners, there are 4 shots of Charlie watching the TV. In the first and third shot, grandma Georgina's head is upward off the pillow. In the second and fourth shots, her head is resting on the pillow laying down. 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.

I usually wouldn't write a review for a movie that already has so many but I have decided to come forward and defend this one, particularly since a lot of the negative reviewers sound like they have descended into hysterics. I really don't understand what all the caterwauling is about. You would have thought that Tim Burton produced a film advocating Satanism for children or something. It's really not that serious and people need to get a grip. To be clear I have seen both the original older rendition and this one and I HAVE ENJOYED BOTH. It's a DIFFERENT movie and I find the acting therein SUPERB. I have watched this film many times and the jokes, facial expression and banter never get old. The cast did an outstanding job. I find myself laughing EACH and EVERY time I watch this. As far parental advisories I watch this with my children all the time. (Admittedly there about perhaps TWO scenes that may be very briefly disturbing.) And I am big on parental guidance when it comes to movies and I am quick to protect my little ones and quick to protest, yes PROTEST, when Hollyweird gets out of line. But I really don't see what the fuss is about. (But of course, it is clearly for each parent to decide.) For those who insist on comparing this film to the original and posting your protestations online please calm down. Know that you are doing the public a diservice with your hysterics. Please step aside and allow others to view this film for its own merits. For those who have an open mind go forth and enjoy this. You won't be disappointed!
