This was one of my favourite films as a child and now, many years later, is a favourite of my own small children. The colour, imagery, songs and wicked humour stay in the mind long after watching. The moral content (if you are very rude/greedy/selfish etc.., you get your comeuppence in the end) is as relevant today as it's ever been. Even though the ending differs slightly from Roald Dahl's book - Charlie is not as faultless in the film, but redeems himself with his honesty - the story is as enjoyable and heartwarming as they get.

Despite the rather dated sets, this remains my favourite Willy Wonka film, and one of my favourite films ever. From the great casting to Anthony Newley's unforgettable soundtrack, this has a sense of wonder and fantasy that finds me watching it with my kids, just as I watched it at their age.

It's truer to the book than the later Tim Burton version and not as creepy!

I have always loved the Roald Dahl story of Willy Wonka, and this is by far my favourite version film wise. Gene Wilder is fantastic in it and the umpa loompa's are much less scary than in the newer version!!
This is a classic film that any child should get to watch, no matter their age.
Simply brilliant!

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is one of the all time classic children's' films ever made and even after some 30 years since its original release, this version remains as fresh, as bright, as delightful and as exciting as ever.
It's the classic tale of the poor little boy who makes good when deprived Charlie Bucket finds one of only 5 golden tickets hidden inside bars of famous Wonka chocolate. The tickets give the winner entry for the day into the fabulous and top secret Wonka chocolate factory and to meet the even more famous inventor Willy Wonka. Charlie joins the other 4 finders of the golden tickets, a motley crew of horrible children of varying bad habits, for his wonderful day out in WonkaLand.
What I really like about the film is the trip around the factory is just a real visual delight around every corner with its madcap inventions, chocolate river, crazy machinery and absurd take on everyday life.
The other thing I really think the film does well is that it has an almost sinister side to it. Willy Wonka himself is not the friendly old uncle he seems at times, at moments he turns on the children and positively scares them to death. The Oompa Lumpas are also not the cuddly cute little men they first seem and I'm sure they have induced many a childhood nightmare. I think this element is good as it stops the film becomes to sickly sweet and keeps the action on edge.
I think the final word can be that I remember this film delighting me as a child and when my own children watched it recently they too were totally taken into the story and watched entraced for the duration.

Watched this recently with my family as kids had just finished reading the Roald Dahl story. It remains largely faithful to the original story line with a few short added parts. The acting is a bit exaggerated in the early part, and ambles a bit until the winners of the golden tickets go to meet Willy Wonka. Despite that there are a few very clever and humorous lines; which younger children may not appreciate but had the adults laughing.
Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka himself defines the film. His performance is memorable in his portrayal of the eccentric chocolate factory owner. He is a bit more sombre and possibly more sinister than Willy Wonka of the book and there are a few slightly darker bits in the film that younger children may find a little scary. However he is intriguing and entertaining.
If you have read the book, I highly recommend this film.

Both the book and the movie are fantastic but there are differences naturally, even so, i think that the film stays close to the book fairly well making this movie simply fantastic.
No matter how many times it appears on T.V i'll always watch it. The songs are great (both from normal people and ompalumpas!), the scenery from Munich is beautiful and the actual chocolate factory brings to life the fantastic places and adventures that the book contains.
The actual character of Willie Wonka, is a great one anyway but to get Gene Wilder to play the part was a stroke of genius. Some argue that Wilder overdoes it and is a bit too crazy but Wilder has simply brought his own personal style to the role.
The children are as horrible as Dahl intended, ranging from Mike Teevee, the tele addict to spoilt brat Veruka Salt. To balance this we have the great Charlie who is still wholesome even in the face of extreme poverty.
All the family will love this DVD, the very fact that it is still a hit today, shows that it is a true classic!

Bought this for my six years old granddaughter as they had been to a local chocolate factory on a school project, it delighted her as much as it did her mum 30 years ago. This is a film that will never grow old.

This is probably my favourite film of all time. I had it on VHS, then on DVD and I decided to try the Blu-ray. I was not disappointed. The improvement in image clarity is incredible and the extras are great too.
