...For every dulcet song, there's an unsettling side, uttered with a wide-eyed manic energy...

With a single gleam of his eye, Wilder pulls off more hints at a devious personality than all Johnny Depp's white make up, and bad wigs combined. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- Probably the best film of its sort since The Wizard of Oz. It is everything that family movies usually claim to be, but aren't: Delightful, funny, scary, exciting, and, most of all, a genuine work of imagination. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- The film has a rosier reputation than it earns, but its strengths are awfully good, and [Gene] Wilder is one for the history books. Full Review

It's Gene Wilder, at the top of his form, who makes this uneasy amalgam work, but [Mel] Stuart must surely deserve some of the credit... Full Review

Product Description:

A wry and amusing musical about a world famous candymaker who hides five golden tickets in candy bars for five lucky children. Young, good-natured Charlie (Peter Ostrum) wins one of the tickets hidden amongst thousands of Wonka chocolate bars. What have Charlie and the other four kids won' A tour through Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, led by the loveable, eccentric, but often mean-spirited Wonka (Gene Wilder) himself. The factory itself is like a fantasy world: crazy color schemes, wild inventions, secret rooms, busy oompa-loompas, and lots and lots of delectable sweets. But Wonka has a hidden agenda, and during the tour he tests each child's character and honesty. Based on Roald Dahl's children's book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."
