Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The basic storyline is the same: Charlie and four obnoxious children win a contest to tour the factory of the world’s most famous candy maker, Willy Wonka.

I don’t really remember enough details about the original or the book to make a comparison, but this new version was definitely enjoyable. Some background info was added about Wonka’s childhood, and I thought the Oompa Loompa numbers were great — each song was done in a different style of music, including a rock and roll number.

PS. Thanks for the passes to Saturday’s screening!
