Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Deliberate mistake: Duesseldorf does not, nor has it ever, looked like the quaint place shown in the film. The caption does get quite a laugh from German audiences, though.

Deliberate mistake: Charlie's room has a hole big enough for him to climb out of in the ceiling. I know it is to show just how poor the family is, but we see he has only a thin wool blanket for warmth. He would have frozen to death in his sleep during winter by now.

Mistakes

The characters within the elevator are thrown against the wall from the sudden change. However, they are thrown against the wall that is in the direction the elevator is now moving, instead of the opposite wall as they should have been.

Trivia

The many Oompa Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are all played by the same man - Deep Roy. They used CGI to duplicate him. He would do a ton of different dance moves so when it's all put together, it would look like there were a bunch of different Oompa Loompas.
