Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory
Willy Wonka returned for another round in this version starring Johnny Depp. This time, the illustrious candy maker brings a bit of mayhem to the five “lucky” golden ticket winners. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”.

∙ At the beginning of the movie, a line of chocolate bars are shown on a conveyor belt and they are upside down. The five golden tickets are then put on the bottom of the bars before they are sealed. But when the tickets are discovered, they are placed on top of the chocolate bars.

∙ Mr. Salt has the ladies who work in his factory looking for a golden ticket for Veruca. In an overhead view of the podium before Mr. Salt walks up to it, the microphone is pointing toward the right of the screen. But, in the following front view of the podium, when Mr. Salt starts to make his speech, the microphone is now positioned straight and facing him.

∙ Charlie Bucket is given a Wonka bar for his birthday. The chocolate bar’s wrapper while Charlie is sitting on his grandparents’ bed changes position in front view of him.

∙ A young Willy Wonka is first shown trick-or-treating on Halloween. When he is shown walking up the steps of his home, he’s shown using a large pillowcase to carry his candy loot. But once inside, when Dr. Wonka dumps the candy out, it’s in a Halloween pail shaped like a jack-o-lantern.

∙ Willy Wonka opens the gate door for Mr. Salt to get Veruca when she’s attacked by the squirrels. He shuts the door and he’s standing behind the gate that leads to the stairs. But when the Oompa Loompas start to sing the overhead/rear view of Mr. Salt shows no one is standing at the door of the gate. In the next front view, Willy Wonka can be seen standing at the door.
