Just saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with Shari and Rob. It was very, very odd... but enjoyable. I think J. Depp was attempting the channel Michael Jackson... hmmm, pasty white guy with father issues who invites a young boy to come and stay with him... as long as he doesn't bring his parents. Sound like anyone we know?

I would recommend the movie for anyone over the age of, say twenty-three who has a reasonably twisted sense of humor. Otherwise, stick with Gene Wilder (who, in my mind, is still perfection as Willy Wonka). I will not say that one version is better than the other--just that they appeal to different crowds. I consider them companion peices.
