Corrected entry: When the candyman sells Charlie the Scrumdiviliunctions Bar (whatever), Charlie gives him a quarter. He gets no change, but he buys another regular bar for Grandpa Joe. The candyman didn't know he would buy another bar, so did he intend to keep the 15 cents change? And he still didn't give back the nickel remaining.
Corrected entry: Why would Mr Wonka's loyal Oompa-Loompas shrink Mike when Mr Wonka was shouting 'No, don't.'
Corrected entry: Where on earth did Grandpa Joe get that second candy bar that Charlie opened? Neither he nor any of the other grandparents could have bought it, since they never get out of bed, Charlie couldn't have since he was surprised when he saw it, and Mrs. Bucket probably didn't since she wouldn't approve of wasting Grandpa Joe's tobacco money and getting Charlie's hopes up about the Golden Ticket. It can't be the reason from the book either - in that Grandpa sends Charlie out to get it with his hoarded dime, but in the film he's just somehow acquired it.
Corrected entry: When Violet eats the gum and turns into a blueberry, Wonka tells the Oompa Loompas to roll her to the juicing room. When they start rolling her around, you can see that it's not Violet, but a rather large blue ball with a wig glued to it.
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 Charlie, Grandpa Joe, and Wonka are getting into the Wonkavator, Wonka tells Charlie that he has pressed every button in the Wonkavator except the one circled in red. Once Charlie presses it, Wonka tells them to hang on because he is not sure what will happen. However, in the very next breath he states, "Faster, faster, if we don't pick up enough speed we'll never make it through." Grandpa Joe then states, "You mean we're going...", and Wonka says, "Up and out." Now if Wonka never pressed the button and did not know what to expect, how did he know that they would be transported up and out of the factory?
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?
