==Plot==
 
Charlie Bucket is a kind and loving boy who lives in poverty with his parents and grandparents, but their luck changes as he and his Grandpa Joe join a small group of contest winners who get to tour the magical and mysterious factory of eccentric and mysterious candy maker, Willy Wonka. Aided by his diminutive Oompa Loompa workers, Wonka has a hidden motivation for the tour, one that he will reveal only after the children in the group show their true colors.

==Why It Rocks==
 
#It stays true to the Roald Dahl book, but with a few changes from both the book and the 1971 film.
 
#This version fills in a major plot hole that both the orginal novel and 70s film had. In the previous works it was simply stated that whoever found Wonka's golden tickets would get to go to his factory, and the five winners just happened to be kids. Here, Wonka specifically stated he ''wanted'' kids to find those tickets, which clears up a major confusion for newcomers.
 
#The acting is amazing. Johnny Depp does a decent performance as Willy Wonka.
 
#Incredible musical score by Danny Elfman.
 
#Excellent supporting cast.
 
#Catchy and rocking songs from the Oompa-Loompas as the four kids get into a predicament.
 
#The sets of the chocolate factory are amazing. From the chocolate room to the television room, they all look incredible.
 
#The film fixes up an error from the [[Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory|original film]] by showing the children leaving the factory.
 
#The film has some great narration.
 
#The scene where Wonka reunites with his father is one of the film's most heartwarming moments.
 
#It was interesting to find out that Deep Roy played many Oompa-Loompas in one film.
 
#The effects are great.

#Despite Charlie being the main titular protagonist, he doesn't get a lot of character development as the movie focuses more on Willy Wonka than Charlie, resulting in Charlie coming off as underdeveloped and difficult to relate to. Freddie Highmore's bland performance doesn't help either.

==Trivia==
 
* Marilyn Manson campaigned for the role of Willy Wonka. Other candidates were Rowan Atkinson, Dan Aykroyd, Nicolas Cage, Jim Carrey, Chevy Chase, John Cleese, Warwick Davis, Robert De Niro, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Dwayne Johnson, Terry Jones, Michael Keaton, Ian McKellen, Steve Martin, Rik Mayall, Bill Murray, Mike Myers, Leslie Nielsen, Michael Palin, Brad Pitt, Adam Sandler, Jerry Seinfeld, Will Smith, Patrick Stewart, Ben Stiller and Robin Williams. Michael Jackson also campaigned for the role before his trial in 2003.
 
* Frank Oz was attached to the director's chair before Tim Burton took over. Martin Scorsese, Rob Minkoff, Robert Zemeckis, Barry Levinson and Gary Ross were all at one point either seriously considered or attached to direct.
 
* Gregory Peck was first offered the role of Grandpa Joe, and he told Warner Brothers that he'd consider it. Sadly, he died before he could give his answer, but his family has revealed he was very eager to play the part. The only reason he didn't say yes right away was because he was afraid it would make him seem desperate and cause the studio to give him a lower paycheck. Peter Ustinov was also offered the role, but he passed away before he could give the producers his answer. Also considered were Richard Attenborough, Michael Caine, George Carlin, Kirk Douglas, Albert Finney, Richard Griffiths, Anthony Hopkins, Ron Moody, Paul Newman, Max von Sydow, Eli Wallach and David Warner. Liccy Dahl actually wanted Christopher Lloyd for the part with Dustin Hoffman as Willy Wonka, or possibly an English comedian like Eddie Izzard.
 
*Taylor Momsen auditioned for the role of Violet Beauregarde, but was deemed to be too beautiful for the role.
 
*Tim Burton is a childhood fan of Roald Dahl's work, which also greatly influenced Burton's art style.
 
*AnnaSophia Robb (Violet Beauregarde's actor) says she received a lot of jaw cramps while chewing her gum. Her dad also told her to not smack her gum, but the filmmakers told her otherwise.
 
*The line "Good morning starshine. The Earth says hello" originated from the musical ''Hair''.

Revision as of 23:06, 9 November 2020

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a 2005 British-American musical fantasy film directed by Tim Burton and written by John August, based on the 1964 British book of the same name by Roald Dahl. The film stars Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka and Freddie Highmore as Charlie Bucket. The storyline follows Charlie, who wins a contest and is along with four other contest winners, subsequently led by Wonka on a tour of his chocolate factory, the most magnificent in the world.

Development for another adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (filmed previously as Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory in 1971) began in 1991, which resulted in Warner Bros. providing the Dahl Estate with total artistic control. Prior to Burton's involvement, directors such as Gary RossRob MinkoffMartin Scorsese and Tom Shadyac had been involved, while actors Bill MurrayNicolas CageJim CarreyMichael KeatonBrad PittWill SmithAdam Sandler, and many others, were either in discussion with or considered by the studio to play Wonka.

Burton immediately brought regular collaborators Depp and Danny Elfman aboard. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory represents the first time since The Nightmare Before Christmas that Elfman contributed to a film score using written songs and his vocals. Filming took place from June to December 2004 at Pinewood Studios in the United KingdomCharlie and the Chocolate Factory was released to critical praise and was a box office success, grossing $475 million worldwide.

The Fucking Plot (W.I.P)

Charlie Bucket (Freddie Highmore) is a fucking stupid boy living in poverty with his fucking parents (Noah Fucklor and Helena Shitham Carter) and four fucking bedridden shitty grandparents. They all fucking rely on his fucking father for income, employed at a fucking toothpaste factory, responsible for putting the fucking caps on the fucking tubes. Down the fucking street is Willy Wonka's (Johnny Depp) fucking chocolate factory, which fucking reopened after industrial espionage fucking forced him into fucking seclusion and fucking sacking his fucking employees. Charlie's fucking Grandpa Joe (David Kelly) worked for Wonka before the fucking termination.

Wonka announces a fucking contest whereby children that find Shitty Tickets hidden in five fucking Wonka bars will be given a fucking tour of the fucking factory and one a fucking chance to be presented with an unknown grand fucking prize. Four fucking tickets are quickly found: the greedy and gluttonous Augustus Fucking Gloop (Philip Wiegratz) from Düsseldorf; the spoiled and rotten Veruca Salty Fucker (Julia Winter) from Buckinghamshire; the competitive and boastful Violet Beauregarde (AnnaSophia Robb) from Atlanta; and the arrogant and aggressive Mike Teavee (Jordan Fry) from Denver. Charlie hopes to find a ticket but his chances are small as money is tight, and the best has to be made of his annual birthday present of one Wonka bar and a bar bought by Grandpa Joe's money, both of which yield no tickets. All hope is crushed when the last ticket is apparently claimed in Russia. Charlie, on finding some money in the street, just intends to enjoy one chocolate bar when news breaks that the Russian ticket was fake. Charlie finds the bar he just bought has the last Golden Ticket. Bystanders attempt to separate him from it, only for the shopkeeper (Oscar James) to see that he keeps the ticket and gets back home with it.

Grandpa Joe offers to accompany Charlie on the tour, but Charlie explains how he was offered money for the ticket and intends to sell it. Grandpa George (David Morris) reminds Charlie that money is far more common than the tickets, and convinces Charlie to keep it. The visitors find Wonka to be peculiar, lonely and acting odd at the mention of "parents". The tour shows how the fantastical factory operates under the efforts of the short humans called Oompa-Loompas. The other four children succumb to temptation, and end up being caught in the factory workings and have to be safely recovered by the Oompa-Loompas, albeit in worse shape than at the start of the tour: Augustus falls into a river of chocolate and has been sucked up by a pipe before being rescued from the fudge processing center; Violet expands into an oversized blueberry when she tries an experimental piece of chewing gum; Veruca is thrown away as a "bad nut" by trained squirrels; and Mike is shrunk down to a few inches in height after being the first person transported by Wonka's new television advertising invention.

Charlie is congratulated as the only remaining child and the winner of the grand prize, Wonka's heir to the factory. Unfortunately, Wonka stipulates that Charlie's family has to stay behind; therefore, Charlie rejects the offer. When Charlie rejects the offer, Willy Wonka flies back to the factory in his great glass elevator. Charlie learns that Wonka had a troubled past with his father, Wilbur Wonka (Christopher Lee), a dentist. Willy was forbidden from eating candy of any type or quantity and had torture device-like braces affixed to his teeth, and was met with severe punishment when he was caught eating the candy. But once Willy got a taste, he wanted to become a confectioner, against his father's wishes and he left home to follow his dream. Wonka later returned to find his father and home completely gone. Some days later, Wonka's candies are selling poorly and he comes to associate his unhappiness with the sorry financial state of his company, so he makes an effort to find Charlie who helps him locate Wilbur. When they visit, it appears that despite his strict avoidance of candy, the dentist has followed Willy's success and they reconcile. Wonka allows Charlie's family to move into the factory while he and Charlie plan new product lines to produce.
