I must admit that I misjudged this movie. When I saw the trailer I never expected it to be a good one. I'm not a chocolate lover, I didn't see a connection with this movie, only to find out that there's more to it. Johnny Depp of course is such a fine actor. I always see him as a handsome and cool guy, that is why it gives me that smile how they made him look funny and convincing as Willy Wonka. I particularly like the moral values they injected in it. Overall, both parents and kids will have fun watching Charlie and the Chocolate factory.

Plot Outline/ Synopsis:

A young boy wins a tour through the most magnificent chocolate factory in the world, led by the world's most unusual candy maker. This is a story of an ordinary little boy named Charlie Bucket. He was not faster, or stronger, or more clever than other children. His family was not rich or powerful or well-connected; in fact, they barely had enough to eat. Charlie Bucket was the luckiest boy in the entire world. He just didn't know it yet.
