Great book! I better get a new gum! I want a balloons and the TV!

I found this film to be a much better adaptation of the story over the first movie. Burton kept the whimsy of the original story, but also had the darker undertone that runs under Roald Dahl's books, which was missing from the first film. I thought Johnny Depp's Willy Wonka was closer to what Dahl intended over Gene Wilder's performance.

The movie is not that creepy. I watched it at school and I
liked Willy Wonka.

I liked it. Like most commenters, I've seen the original movie and read the book. The Umpa Lumpa songs were a highlight along with the squirrels, and of course Christopher Lee.

Really creepy. I wouldn't show this to my 5-year-old daughter, who loved the book. We're going to check out the original movie.

Another movie that Johnny Depp makes worthwhile to watch!

It's similar to the book, but not as similar as I would enjoy... But it is in my top 10 movies list!

Willy Wonka: Do you like my meadow? Try some of my grass! Please have a blade, please do, it's so delectable and so darn good looking!
Charlie Bucket: You can eat the grass?
Willy Wonka: Of course you can! Everything in this room is eatable, even *I'm* eatable! But that is called "cannibalism," my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies.

Willy Wonka: I sure hope no part of him gets left behind.
Mr. Teavee: What do you mean?
Willy Wonka: Uh, well... sometimes only half of the little pieces find their way through. If you had to choose only one half of your son, which one would it be?
Mr. Teavee: What kind of a question is that?
Willy Wonka: No need to snap, just a question.

Willy Wonka: You're all quite short, aren't you?
Violet Beauregarde: Well yeah, we're children.
Willy Wonka: Well that's no excuse. I was never as short as you.
Mike Teavee: You were once.
Willy Wonka: Was not. Know why? Because I distinctly remember putting a hat on top of my head. Look at your short little arms. You could never reach.

Based on the beloved Roald Dahl tale, this comedic and fantastical film follows young Charlie Bucket (Freddie Highmore) and his Grandpa Joe (David Kelly) as they join a small group of contest winners who get to tour the magical and mysterious factory of eccentric candy maker Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp). Aided by his diminutive Oompa Loompa workers (Deep Roy), Wonka has a hidden motivation for the tour, one that he will reveal only after the children in the group show their true colors.
