Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (13-Jul-2005)

Director: Tim Burton

Writer: John August

Based on a book by: Roald Dahl

Keywords: Comedy

Five children win tickets to tour, with their parents, the Wonka Chocolate Factory. As the tour progresses, mishaps befall child after child until only one is left; that one will inherit the factory. Big budget remake of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971), true to the original novel but lacking all of the earlier picture's warmth. More time is spent on Wonka's background, eliminating some of the mystique. Depp takes a valiant stab at the character, but he is no Gene Wilder. Replete with beautiful CGI, but only one Oompa-Loompa.
