I love this movie, I grew up watching it yes it has its cheesy moments what do you expect from this movie it was made so long ago. I watched the Johnny Depp one when it came out I like both equally, it is a family movie and a classic I wish I owned it.... 5 stars!!

I know this first adaptation of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" is incredibly beloved by so many people. And there is a lot to love. The look of the film is whimsical and fun. Most of the child actors did a good job of portraying the brats in the book. Gene Wilder did an interesting interpretation of Willy Wonka. However, this adaptation has never really stood up for me. I've always felt that there is something missing, and part of it might be the darker tone that pervades throughout Roald Dahl's books, beneath all the whimsy. I felt this movie only had a moment like that once, and it is bizarrely out of place with the rest of the film.

This movie is good but, unfortunately, I watched it after "Charlie And The Chocolate Factory" because Johnny Depp's movie was the new version. And of course, in the new movie all the machines and the decorations are newer and prettier. But that doesn't mean that the old version is bad -- it is the 1st version and that makes it unforgettable. I think that the two Wonkas have done a really great job in acting the character, although Johnny Depp was funnier and weirder in a funny way too, but I think that the two were great. This movie is appropriate for all ages and I give it 5.5/10. - @rahmamawlood of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

It is a great family movie! Awesome for the whole family.I really love this movie and its really enjoyable to watch and read. :) The DVD package should read "For Kids of All Ages" because this is a movie that no one can resist. The reason it is so charming is Gene Wilder as Willie Wonka. He is having a contest that any child would love to win. One boy named Charlie thinks he won't get picked, but luckily he is chosen. The rest is comedy history as we get to see the amazing Wille Wonka Chocolate Factory. This may be the best work of Gene Wilder, though he certainly has many fine films to his credit. Great for the entire family!!
P.S. The response by KCLS patrons has been impressive. Hope you enjoy the movie over the Holiday Season! 5 stars Great movie
