Four troubled orphans from four separate movie scenarios who are bound together in a wacky chocolate factory after receiving golden tickets to go on an 'epic adventure.'

There they must seek the help of a randy lion, a hoard of mutants from the x academy, students of witchcraft and wizardry, funky swash-buckling pirates and a mischievous beaver to defeat the evil white bitch!

Trivia

Crispin Glover plays Willy, a spoof of Johnny Depp's portrayal of Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005). Glover and Depp previously worked together in What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993) and Dead Man (1995) and later in Alice in Wonderland (2010). See more »

Goofs

(at around 19 mins) When Lucy went into the wardrobe, a large number of objects poured on top of her when she opened it. However, when Edward goes in (at around 28 mins), there is nothing in the room and the wardrobe is neat and closed again. This is probably deliberate. See more »

why do studios accept to make movies like this?!?
26 January 2007 | by bourgeoismarc-1See all my reviews

There is nothing original here whatsoever-same old big breast jokes, oral sex jokes; sloppy tongue-kissing, spoofing of movies not necessarily worth spoofing, and using the same old actors (i.e. Adam Campbell) from other horrible spoofing movies. It is disappointing to see that actors who have received some acclaim from both critics and the public alike have starred in this-the worst movie ever made-worse than Grease 2. And only a few minutes longer than a regular TV show except without interesting commercials, it is highway robbery to make anyone pay to see this half-baked movie where writers, producers, actors and directors have only put half an effort to do something that at least would be satisfactory. And half is giving them too much credit. Unfortunately for Kal Penn, Jennifer Coolidge, Faune A. Chambers and Crispin Glover (you waited for this movie to return to the big screen? where were you last couple of years? in detox?), I won't be running to the theatre any time soon to see one of their movies any time soon.

Studio decision-makers have to take a stand against these movies-and so does the industry. Pre-teens, teens and young adults have shown that they have interests in seeing well-written, acted, developed and intelligent movies. Don't take the easy way out to do these useless piece of junk.
