Gene Wilder and the Oompa Loompas in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Based on the book by Roald Dahl, this cult film is your ticket to a flavorful experience akin to chewing on a stick of Three-Course Dinner gum. Gene Wilder plays Willy Wonka, the mysterious trickster who owns a bizarre funhouse full of trippy treats and gadgets… and Oompa Loompas. Greed and gluttony are put to the test as five special visitors make their way through this psychedelic wonderland, where poor behavior can cause one to fall into a chocolate river and get stuck in a pipe, or simply discarded down a garbage chute. How will Charlie outsmart his competitors in this delightfully devious game of morality? In 2008, Tim Burton and Johnny Depp took on Dahl's dark tale with their eye-popping remake, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."
