-Leonard Maltin, "ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT"
What wonders await you in Willy Wonka's Factory? Explore fields of soft minty sugar grass in the Chocolate Room...Sail along the Chocolate River in a pink sugar boat...Experiment with Everlasting Gobstoppers in the Inventing Room...Observe talented squirrels in the Nut Room and travel to the Television Room by a glass elevator. You'll find a lot that's funny, a lot that's mysterious...and an adventure as sweet and satisfying as a Wonka Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight bar. This dazzling film adapted from Roald Dahl's classic children's novel, directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp and Freddie Highmore, is your Golden Ticket to a world so inventive, so imaginative, you won't want to miss a delicious moment!
Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, and Danny Elfman team up yet again to bring us another imaginative - if bizarre - film. Oh and Deep Roy is creepy as hell as the army of Oompa Loompas.
