Trivia

After Veruca falls down to the incinerator, Wonka reassures the group by saying it is only lit on Tuesdays, to which Mike Teavee comments that "Today is Tuesday". The factory tour commenced on Feb. 1, and that day in 2005 was actually a Tuesday. See more »

Goofs

When Willy Wonka dips the pink ladle into the chocolate river, the chocolate is spilling over the edge of the ladle. But when he hands it to Charlie, the outside of the ladle is completely free of chocolate residue. 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.

Pay no attention to the hysterical naysayers
10 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

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!
