I took my 4 year old to see this. He likes the original better. Much like the original, the beginning takes to long to get to the point. Johnny Depp was the WRONG choice for this part. He seems like he is trying to be Jim Carrey playing Michael Jackson except this Michael Jackson hates kids. The oompa loompas (or should I say the one oompa loompa) did not fit either. Seems like they had to cut costs for this movie and only have one guy and then multiply him. The songs were awful, I couldnt wait for each one to end.

Ive seen the original so many times, that I dont remember how true to the book it actually was, so I didnt care for the references to Willy Wonkas childhood nor the ending where charlie reunites him with his parents.
I think you just have to be a Tim Burton fan to like his movies, and I dont like either.
