Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a fantasy children's film that was released in 2005. The film is about young Charlie Bucket, a sweet young boy who is growing up in a very poor family. Charlie lives with his mother and father her in a small, ramshackle house. Both sets of Charlie's grandparent's also live with him and his both. The grandparents are all very old and ill and they spend all day in the same bed, all four of them.
Charlie lives near the Willie Wonka Chocolate Factory and he is fascinated by the place. One day there is an announcement in the newspaper that Willie Wonka, the owner of the magical chocolate factory, has hidden several golden tickets inside his candy bars. The people that find the golden tickets will be allowed to come in and tour the factory. Charlie is desperate to get one of those tickets to tour the factory but the odds are stacked against him. The Bucket family is extremely poor and Charlie's father has just lost his job meaning that the buying even a chocolate bar is out of the family's budget. The news on tv keeps showing the various winners of golden tickets around the world and all the children that keep are winning are bad. There is bratty, spoiled Veruca Salt, Augustus Gloop who is greedy and eats everything in sight, and Mike Teavee who sits around and watches tv all day.
Charlie's dad ends up saving enough money for Charlie to get a chocolate bar and amazingly enough it contains a golden ticket. Charlie and his grandfather head to the factory to join the others on their tour. The tour begins in the Chocolate Room which is room made entirely out of chocolate. There is even a flowing chocolate river. Augustus is so greedy that he tries to drink from the river but falls in. Next, there is the Inventing Room where new candy is pioneered. One of the children tries to steal a piece of gun but then blows up in size to resemble a giant blueberry. Then there is a Nut Room where trained squirrels crack nuts. Veruca wants a pet squirrel and she falls down an incinerator shoot. Finally, there is a television room where Mike Teavee ends up getting shrunk. Only Charlie comes through the tour unscathed. At the end, Willie Wonka tells Charlie that because he is so good and caring the factory is his.
