fantastic movie

Fantastic classic movie. All children should watch this as it has quite a few lessons all need to learn. Fabulous story from beginning to end. The newer version was awful.


I loved it from the start especially the Oompa Loompas.



Great acting

The kids in this movie were much better at being nasty than the ones in the more recent version. I love the music. It is a good family film.

This movie is great I have probably watched it more then any other movie in the world. This is a great family movie and is very funny and interesting.

A classic

A heartwarming timeless film where a young boy's dream is realized, Willy Wonka is one of those films every child should see. With an incredibly memorable score, good acting, and happy ending, this movie is fun for all.
