2006 Award
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
( Warner Bros. $ Score: ) In the interest of full disclosure, one of us is devoted to the original movie and approached the Tim Burton/Johnny Depp version with disdain. Unfortunately, from the opening credits onward, it was clear that the new adaptation of the Dahl’s classic story was truly inventive, entertaining, and hit that difficult chord of appealing to all ages. While some found Depp’s Willy Wonka a bit odd or creepy, we never had the sense that he went too far (maybe having young children at home gave him a different sensibility). With nods to pop culture of yesteryear (Busby Berkeley, Esther Williams musicals, “2001: A Space Odyssey,” The Beatles, Kiss, etc.)—there’s something delicious for everyone. 7 & up.
