This movie is really fun :). I liked the special effects and humor. But I liked the newer version (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) better. Partly because it has Johnny Depp in it and partially because it is slightly more funny. Overall good movie.
I absolutely LOOOOOVE this movie! It is almost completely lined up with the book, and I really like everything about this! A definite recommend for kids ages 9 - 16. There are a lot of little underlying plot details, and I think anyone under 8 or 9 will not pick up on them and understand the movie as well.
I love this book! I read it for my Creative Writing class and I am in 7th grade. I really want to read the sequel (The Lord of Opium) soon. This book has lots of emotion, description, and ups and downs. I think I enjoyed this book the most because it makes everything seem so real. A definite recommendation.
