oooh how was it? How old are your kids? I was debating taking the boys tomorrow...(5 & 4)

They got toys from Wendy's (I think) and the new oompa's I didn't much care for. Johnny Depp is such an awesome actor. We LOVED him in Pirates.

The original is my all-time favorite kids movie.

I can't wait to see the remake! I Johnny Depp.

I'm glad to hear it's good, though I fully expected it would be. I mean, after all, it's got Johnny Depp in it! Willie Wonka's one of my "kids" (21 & 29) all time favorite movies. In fact, I bought my 29yos a tee shirt for Christmas which reads "Honorary Oompah Loompah".

"Back off you little freaks" :rofling: I can't wait to see this!

I think that Christopher Walken would have made an awesome Willy Wonka though! But who can deny watching Johnny for 2 hours?!?!

The first time I saw a commercial for the movie (before I knew it was JD), I thought it was Jim Carrey!

If it was Jim Carrey, it would have ruined any chance at all of me going to see it. That man's antics get on my nerves, and I imagine he would really have felt the opportunity to cut loose with them, what with it being a children's story and all.
I really really loved Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. I thought he was absolutely perfect. In fact, he and Johnny Depp are both right at the top of my 'favourite actors' list. They're both so talented, and easy on the eyes to boot.

okay i can say i have never once in my life considered Gene Wilder easy on the eyes and i must confess i think Johnny looks creeeeeeepy in this movie...but i think it is the perfect role for him!


i agree though, this type of movie, there is very little chance that i would have seen it with Jim Carrey. I like his more serious roles (and the premise of Liar, Liar cracks me UP!) but most physical comedy annoys the peewaddlin's outta me! I can stand it for about five minutes but then i am done with it....same with people who do impersonations.....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr


aaaaanyway....still can't wait to see it!! :D

My kids are 11, 3 & 5. The 3 year old held out but wanted to go about 20 min. before it was over. A couple of years ago when I first heard about a remake believe it or not but Marilyn Manson was in the running. Could you imagine?! It would of had to have been rated R or higher ...
