Charlie and the Chocolate factory is a movie based on a book by Roald Dahl with a strong plot i loved how the owner of the chocolate factory had alliterative motives on the ending surprise his goal was to find one true person to take over the factory as he would not be able to one day. I also enjoy the part where no matter the circumstance the little boy charlie always remained positive and never turned bratty i would most definitely not change anything about this storyline it was portrayed really nicely with really good actors. The audience i recommend this to is a younger tween age group although at my age I still really enjoy this film. I rate this movie a 4 out of 5. @movieslayer123 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was a fun children’s movie. It had many different kinds of special effects which was very cool to watch. This movie is a lesson about being nice to one another and always never follow the path to greed because it could eventually lead you to trouble and never having the wish to always get what you want. I would rate this movie 4 out of 5 because I really liked it and it was an amazing movie to watch. @BirdieBooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

If you love comedy, sweets, and all kinds of crazy inventions then you will definitely love the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The movie is a modern day remake of the original film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and I think it definitely lives up to, if not surpasses the original movie’s standard. The film talks about a time where Willy Wonka (a famous chocolatier) set out a contest to all children around the globe; whoever finds a golden ticket in his chocolate bar will get a free trip inside of his factory, and the catch is there is only five golden tickets. I loved the movie as well as the original and I could watch it over and over again. The graphic were amazing as it took you into the main hub of the Chocolate Factory, as well as throughout the film. The Oompaloompas were just an added bonus to the comedy aspect. Therefore, I would probably rate this film a 4.5/5 stars, because it’s family orientated, it includes some comedy, and the whole film is revolved around sweets!

as Adult. I like to watch this movie. Full of creativity, Imagination and reveries. The story is not necessarily for Kids but more for adult.

This has people I really like in it, but i really quite disliked this film. I know it was closer to the book in many ways then the original, but it just really didn't do it for me.

There were five golden tickets, so really the description should read "Charlie and four others"

This movie has a Parental Guidance (PG) warning for good reason as the chocolate factory tour winners are gradually "eliminated" to leave Charlie Bucket with the ultimate dilemma of abandoning his family in order to inherit the marvelous chocolate factory. The song and dance routines are pure Bollywood!

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.

Good morning, starshine... the earth says hello!

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.
