Who dares trespass into my candy factory? Don't you know it's dangerous out down here? Good thing I was able to shut everything down. I'm Tuffy. I'm an Oompa Loompa intern.
[Tom & Jerry look confused]
You mean you never heard of Oompa Loompas? Why, they only run Wonka's entire candy operation. Mr. Wonka brought them here years ago from a strange and dangerous land.

Firstly, the DVD cover claims it's an 'original movie'.
Yeah, let's talk about that.
This is a huge recreation of the Gene Wilder movie, complete with the look of the movie, the look of the original characters, huge chunks of dialogue, the incidental music as well as the songs, the basic plot. There's the obvious addition of tagalongs Tom and Jerry (and a mouse who wants to be an Oompa Lompa), and a subplot of T&J trying to stop Slugworth when he seemingly sneaks into the factory during the Golden Ticket Tour, but really, 'original movie'? That's chutzpah.
The animation hurts. It's like some Eastern European ripoff that would have been made soon after the Gene Wilder movie. The voice actors approximate the original cast voices to varying degrees of success (I find it hard to criticise the voice actors, they're just collecting a paycheck).
I'm old, but I'm not so set in my ways that I can't appreciate a good remake - if the remake can bring something good and interesting to its interpretation. This, like that Gus Van Sant Psycho remake, fails that requirement. Though I suppose it will amuse the younger and less demanding demographic.
I still wonder why Tom and Jerry are the only animals in this world that can't talk. And why the makers didn't put a warning at the start to tell kids that chocolate is highly toxic to cats and mice and other animals.
