About the Movie
Gene Wilder ("Blazing Saddles," "Young Frankenstein") stars in this magical, musical fantasy for the young, and the young at heart. The mysterious candy maker extraordinaire Willy Wonka hides a Golden Ticket inside five of his famous candy bars. The kids who find them are invited on a grand tour of the wondrous, wacky Wonka factory, and a chance for an even grander prize -- if they can resist temptation. The delightful musical score includes the hit song "The Candyman." From Roald Dahl's classic novel, produced by David L. Wolper ("Roots," "The Thorn Birds") and nominated for an Academy Award.

Fresh: An okay family musical fantasy.
Fresh: Great fun, with Wilder for once giving an impeccably controlled performance as the factory's bizarre owner.
I loved this movie as a little kid! I recommend this movie to everyone!
This is a great movie I have seen it lots of times but it never gets old! It is one of the best movies in my opinion!
Love the Movie
This version is so much better than the newer one. Characters are better and it has an innocence to it. I have both but this version is the one I watch over and over. The originals seem to be always better than the remakes.
