Reviews & Comments
Leave your comments about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
|Chicago Tribune Michael Wilmington A peach of a story delightfully imagined by Dahl and lushly realized by Burton. It's full of witty or awesome scenes, flights of fancy and characters either totally, lovably sweet or outrageously, humorously rotten.|
|L.A. Weekly Ella Taylor The first half of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a brilliant blend of the best of Burton and Dahl, with some unexpected input from Charles Dickens. In the second half, the contraptions take over, drowning whatever story remains...But it falls frustratingly short of the masterpiece it might have been.|
|The Hollywood Reporter Kirk Honeycutt Here's a film about kids and for kids that has not lost touch with what it is like to actually be a kid.|
|Miami Herald Rene Rodriguez It's Depp's misfire that keeps the picture from becoming a genuinely sweet pleasure: As it stands, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the equivalent of NutriSweet.|
|Film Threat Pete Vonder Haar Burton fans and those eager for a more accurate adaptation of the novel will be happy with this new movie, while nostalgia-addled Gen X-ers and stoners of all ages will always have the original.|
|Charlotte Observer Lawrence Toppman Bizarrely entertaining and brilliantly designed.|
|Christian Science Monitor David Sterritt On the screen, Burton turns out to BE the ideal filmmaker for this deliciously bizarre yarn. He's given free rein to his fantasies in past movies, but rarely as wittily and consistently as he does here.|
|New York Daily News Jami Bernard The eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp) can't feel pleasure, even though he's surrounded by it, so it's weirdly appropriate that the movie isn't "fun," even if it's amazing to look at.|
- The location of Wonka's chocolate factory was intentionally kept ambiguous by director Tim Burton. He made the architecture and street layouts appear like it was set in the UK, but also included American clothing and visuals such as mailboxes.
- This film marks the fourth time that director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have worked together. Their previous movies include Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood and Sleepy Hollow.
- Real chocolate was used for such things as the trees, flowers and the lake that Wonka steers his boat. It took 20 weeks to build a boat that could actually float on chocolate.
- This is Johnny Depp's second chocolate-based movie, having also starred in Chocolat. Depp has said that he doesn't like the taste of expensive chocolate and much prefers the cheap, Easter-egg kind.
- 40 squirrels were trained to peel nuts for the nut-sorting room scene. It took four trainers 19 weeks to bring the squirrels up to speed with the process.

Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory (1971) The story of Charlie Bucket, a little boy with no money and a good heart, who dreams wistfully of being able to buy the candy that other children enjoy. Charlie enters into a magical world when he wins one of five 'Golden Tickets' to visit the mysterious chocolate factory owned by the eccentric Willy Wonka and run by his capable crew of Oompa-Loompas. Once behind the gates, a cast of characters join Charlie and Grandpa Joe on a journey to discover that a kind heart is a far finer possession than a sweet tooth.
101 Dalmatians (1996) Slapstick kingpin John Hughes translates the classic animated children's tale into a campy live-action slugfest. The fur-loving, sadistic Cruella De Vil (Close, at her most outrageous) pants after the pelts of the titular puppies, hoping to sew them into a fabulous coat, but the dogs outsmart her and her bumbling henchmen.
Matilda (1996) A young girl with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge overcomes her parents' disapproval and forms a lasting bond with a sensitive teacher, ultimately discovering her own special abilities. Adapted from the novel by Roald Dahl, and directed by Danny DeVito who also stars as Matilda's insensitive father.
The Haunted Mansion (2003) Eddie Murphy stars in this spooky, CGI-packed Disney film, based on the famous Disney World attraction. He plays Jerry, a workaholic estate agent who interrupts his family's vacation to check out a remote mansion that's for sale. But soon he and his family are trapped in the haunted house and are screaming for their lives. Terence Stamp is the ghost butler, and Nathaniel Parker is the ghost owner who falls for Jerry's wife, Sara (Marsha Thomason), believing she is the reincarnation of his lost love and providing for both a refreshingly interracial, and frighteningly inter-dimensional romance. Jennifer Tilly has a great bit as a loudmouthed head in the crystal ball; Wallace Shawn and Dina Walters are the ghost servants. Zombies rise up from their graves to attack the living, but generally the film is harmless kid stuff that is bursting with cheerful colour, noise, bloodless shocks and refreshingly bathroom-free humour. Fans of the ride should be pleased, as it hits nearly every bump, from the barbershop quartet busts, to the ghostly passenger in the coach. Murphy hams it up royally and the rest of the cast is up for the challenge, especially Stamp, whose droll line readings provide a perfect balance of menace and mirth. Makeup maestro Rick Baker provided the non-CGI special effects.
