Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the movie I wanted to see on Wendsday (we ended up going to Wallace & Gromit), so we went to see it today. And it was a delight. I read the book a long time ago, and while the movie doesn't try to stick to the book (Willi Wonka was not neurotic in the book), it does a very good job in keeping the general of the shape in order and amusing me.
The movie is just hilarious, it's funny in the ordinary sense, and Jhonny Depp has some great quotes that truly flattened me. Beyond that, it's also a delight to the eyes, which colors and sights everywhere. It has some very sticky parts (Charlie & his familiy, Wonka & his dad) that I didn't really like, but I guess that they were a must in such a movie.
I was thoroughfully entertained, to the displeasure of some people there. I'm a pretty big guy, and I've a... big laugh, apperantly. Along with an uncommon sense of humor (I laugh at places others do not, that is), it seems to bother some people.
