Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is a creepy and chilling kids film that may scare some kids. But I grow up with this movie and when I watch it now I still like it.

I used to watch it every weekend when I was a kid. Great movie for the whole family.

The most imaginative and fun movie of my childhood

I'm clearly in the minority but I prefer Tim Burton's version. This one is comparatively garish and superficial and Gene Wilder's Wonka gives me the creeps...

HIghly imaginative film that holds up today. A very quirky and fun performance from Wilder.

Let's forget Tim Burton's horrible remake. This film comes closest to capturing the magic and inventiveness that is in Roald Dahl's classic book. Gene Wilder personalizes Willy Wonka as an eccentric, and yet, very human inventor and the film features a mix of fun songs and intricate visuals.

I like Gene Wilder but I thought this movie was crap & even worse was the 1 with Johnny Depp

I can't help it, no matter how classic it is, I can never love this movie. Gene Wilder was amazing in it, of that I will attest to the day I die, but they needed a better Charlie, especially if they were going to have him sing. My ears bled for hours after he sang.
