Charlie and The Chocolate Factory

Remember the original Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory movie? It starts out showing Charlie doing his newspaper route. His mother works like a dog doing other people’s laundry 16 hours a day. They have the 4 grandparents, who are bedridden, to take care of. They are so bad off that they’re thrilled the day that Charlie bought a loaf of bread for them to eat. Charlie brings home the Golden Ticket and suddenly Grandpa Joe, who hasn’t left the bed in 25 years, is dancing and singing. This old guy was supposedly too lame to work, but if a few free candy bars are on the line he turns into Michael Jackson? If I’m Charlie and his Mom, I probably would have flown into a rage and killed him right there. I hope they get that part right in the new movie.

  1. Is it just me or does Johnny Depp share an eerie resemblance to Michael Jackson? Throw in the whole “I own a candy factory little boy” and ewwww.

  2. Very funny Brighton, you are right!

  3. One of my all time favorite movies specially the “OOMpa Loompas”!
