Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

  • Movies

Director Tim Burton's love for demented man-children and his sensitivity to dark humor should have made this update of Roald Dahl's malevolently jaunty children's book a match made in Skittles-hued heaven. So it's nearly impossible to fathom the grand act of sabotage that Johnny Depp has committed upon the source material as its reclusive chocolatier. The actor's mincing, high-pitched Wonka inadvertently turns Charlie into the unauthorized Michael Jackson story you never thought could ever play in malls
