Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)

This is a remake of the original movie and I thought Jim Carrey Johnny Depp did pretty well (it's bad when I can't remember the difference between the two). Like the original, five children get special tickets to tour the factory and the four that are not Charlie are all narcissistic. As they go through the factory, each of the bad kids get affected by their problems and their parents go to find them. At the end, there's just Charlie and his grandfather (who worked for Willy Wonka years before) and Willy wants Charlie to take over the factory but he'll never see his parents again. Charlie gives up the factory rather than giving up his family, and they work things out.

I thought using the same actor for the Oompa Loompas was really stupid, but I liked the homage to 2001. I thought it was cute, had more depth than the original, but I don't expect to watch it again.
