A young boy wins a tour through the most magnificent chocolate factory in the world, led by the world's most unusual candy maker.
I consider myself a movie buff. I watch every kind of movie. I'll watch chick flicks and give them a fair assessment it really doesn't matter to me. When I watched this movie I can honestly say that it was so horrible that if I had paid anything for it I probably would have taken it outside and shot it! I got about half way through it and had to shut it off. I've seen thousands of movies and I can honestly say that I have only had 2 or 3 movies tops that were so horrible that I couldn't finish watching them and this was one of those! This movie was so lame it disgraces the original Willy Wonka (5 star movie). These two movies are on totally opposite sides of the spectrum. Watch the original that's at least good unlike this garbage flick!
This movie was quite interesting and new. A movie made from a Roald Dahl didn't seem like it would be a succes however many more Roald Dahl classics came from this film including the animated BFG and the real life motion picture Matilda. I enjoyed the small hard to notice comedy in this fil from Mel Brook's actor Gene Wilder (Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein) I enjoyed this film quite a bit so I will give it 4 out of 5.
