Corrected entry: When Charlie asks for his second candy bar from the candy store owner, watch what the candy shop owner is doing. He looks into a clear jar by unscrewing the top. Why can't he just look in through the side?
Corrected entry: In the scene where the children are in the candy store after school, the Candyman is giving candy away freely (no one is paying) and he is throwing so much out to so many children that it would be hard to calculate how much each child owes for the candy he/she ate. But when Charlie goes in (when he finds the money in the gutter) the Candyman "ummmhumm"s for money as payment for the candybar he gave Charlie, as Charlie is scarfing it down. Why doesn't Charlie get free candy?
Corrected entry: When Charlie and his grandpa are flying in the drink room, they both each yell out "wheee". When Charlie says it, his mouth isn't moving, he's just smiling.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Wonka plays the musical lock, the room is tiny, as is the door. The shot then changes to the other side of the door, which is enormous. Surely then we would see the surrounding "tiny" walls from the previous shot and the guests all crouching.
Corrected entry: In the scene on the boat, at the rate they are going, one would think that their hair would be blowing. It is very obvious that no one's hair seems to be blowing at all.
Corrected entry: As the movie progresses anything involving the number of children/parents is gradually decreased as are the number of children/parents, but they should have been enough for all 10 originally. Example: just enough seats on paddle boat and ride through the wonkawash, also the number of coats and goggles available before the TV room.
Corrected entry: Why isn't Charlie disqualified like the other children were? They all do something horrendous so as to be disposed of, eg: Violet chewed the gum, Augustus drank from the chocolate river, etc. But Charlie and Grandpa Joe did (just as Wonka claimed toward the end of the movie) drink fizzy lifting drinks against his orders, and yet Charlie still 'wins' the factory in the end.
Corrected entry: The scene where everyone is in the paddle boat. The Oompa's are powering the huge paddle at the back of the boat, but there is no water splashing from the paddle.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the end where they are flying over London in the elevator the town below shows cars driving on the right side of the road.
Corrected entry: The film is set in England. After the elevator smashes through the roof and is flying over the city you can see that it's a medieval walled city. It's actually Rothenburg Ob Tauber in Southeastern Germany.
Corrected entry: Not really a mistake; just something to point out. Charlie's grandparents say they have not been out of the bed in over 20 years. What if they have to go to the bathroom?
Corrected entry: Mr. Wonka says he transported the whole Oompa Loompa population to his factory. Then why is it that as the movie progresses, we see no female Oompa Loompas? This could cause a great question to how Charlie will have any workers when he takes over the factory.
Corrected entry: When Charlie is walking home from school, just before he reaches the candy store, you can clearly see a "Beavis and Butthead" poster on the wall. The movie is set at least thirty years before the creation of this cartoon.
Corrected entry: Mrs. Teevee refers to the music Wonka plays on the Musical Lock as Rachmaninov. It is actually the beginning of The Marriage of Figaro by Mozart.
Corrected entry: How come Charlie didn't get any publicity after he found his golden ticket? Everyone else did.
Corrected entry: At Wonka's factory gates (coming from his entrance door towards the gates on the right) there's a road traffic sign which states '(you are on a) priority road' on the road is bending to the left. I presume the set (gates, carpets, office) was build on an existing junction.
Corrected entry: This movie was actually made to be a gimmick for a new candy bar that was going to be introduced the same day as the movie's premiere. However, some mistake was made in the candy bars' formula, causing them to melt before they got to the stores, and a mass recall for the candy bars was issued. But the movie still turned out to be a hit.
