Johnny Depp is missing.
GW starred in the 1971 original, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. JD starred in the 2005 remake, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
And, my bullshit detector is tingling. Has the reviewer seen the original, or is s/he regurgitating someone else's opinion? JD is the Prince clone, not GW.

I would not expect a TV 'Guide' to get anything right.
I loathed the 71 version enough to ignore the remake. The hero kid looked to me like one of the 'Children Of The Damned'.
Did you know that Warren Oates made 6 films with Sam Peckinpah?
I expect Baz Luhridd will soon remake The Wild Bunch with Hugh Jackman, Geoffrey Rush and Russell Crowe.

On that quiz show on ABC TV Sunday a guy got a perfect score on his speciality subject -Wrestlemania episodes 1 - 20. All the rest were the usual Henry The V111's wives etc.

Also: Oompa Loomas.

Either Depp's wrong or the description's wrong.
In 1971, Depp was eight/nine years old, so that's a trifecta of Wrongkaness.

MS: There are few movies from my kiddiehood that stood out as much as WW&TCF. Scared the bejeezus out of me.
FX: Wrestlemania certainly got 'em all right, but Six Wives won.
TT: You didn't ever see the Oompah Loomas. They were worked in the clothing mill.

There was one in a cage, but it wasn't moving.
The review gives it one star. That's about right.

I scrolled down a bit too quick and missed your title. So I was trying to guess... all involving the word WANKER, of course. Had a good old laff when I scrolled back up.

It's what Marge told Bart when he asked if she saw an oompa-loompa at the sugar refinery. It kind of fitted with your previous comment.

Comments 8, 10, and 12 have got me in hysterics. It took me a while to piece together all the information starting at number 12, so this made it rewarding AND funny. Please note this thread is all about me.
