Trivia

In the novel, Mr. Wonka tells Charlie he's won the factory while they're flying in the Great Glass Elevator, and in order to ensure that the boy's other grandparents won't have to get out of their bed - which won't fit through the shack's door but will fit in the elevator - to move there, he crashes it into the shack to pick the family up. In this adaptation, Mr. Wonka doesn't break the news that Charlie's won the factory to anyone until after he's crashed the elevator into the shack, and to make matters worse he doesn't intend to take anyone but Charlie back to the factory.

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 MadMax-6See 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!
