      I first watched “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” when I was about seven years old and I’ve been hooked since. I just watched “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” this evening for about the 50th time.

      This movie is a classic for people of all ages. In fact, I think I enjoy it more as an adult than I ever did as a child. At the end of a long, stressful day, there’s nothing more relaxing than to kick back with a large mug of hot cocoa and a bag of popcorn, just like I did as a child, and watch Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) introduce us to a fantasy world made of chocolate and sweets.

      In the beginning of the movie, you will meet Charlie Buckett and his starving, but cheerful family. They’re about as poor as poor gets and it’s almost Charlie’s birthday. His gift is a ten cent Willy Wonka Chocolate Bar, but

      this year, the birthday gift is more important than ever. You see, Willy Wonka himself has put five golden tickets in his Wonka Chocolate Bars. The lucky winner of one of these tickets not only is given a tour of the chocolate factory by none other than Mr. Wonka himself, but they will also receive a lifetime supply of chocolate.

      This golden ticket contest starts a frenzy of people all around the world scrambling to buy up all the Wonka bars they can get their hands on. Poor Charlie Buckett only gets one chocolate bar for his birthday, and sadly, it doesn’t contain the golden ticket that he has his heart set on.

      One by one, the golden tickets are found by beastly little children. Each one seems more spoiled and rotten than the next. Poor Charlie gets sadder by the day as he watches his chances of getting a golden ticket all but disappear.

      • At last, the fifth and final golden ticket is found and all hope is lost.

        Charlie finds a little money in the street and decides to treat himself to a Wonka Bar at the local candy store. Now that all the golden tickets have been found, the Wonka bars are now available once again. He wants the chocolate so badly that he barely takes time to chew it before he swallows. Then, he decides to take a little more of the money to buy a chocolate bar for his nice Uncle Joe.

        As Charlie is walking home, he discovers that the fifth golden ticket was a fake, which means that there is one more golden ticket still to be found. Charlie stops to rip open the chocolate bar he bought for his Uncle Joe and like magic, there’s the fifth and final golden ticket. That’s when the real fun of the movie begins.

        Charlie and his Uncle Joe go to the factory along with all the other children and their parents. The factory is more beautiful and interesting than you could imagine. There’s all kinds of candy making machines and little men called Oompa Loompa’s who help run the factory. Best of all, there’s a special room in the factory where everything is edible. Every blade of grass, buttercup, and twig. It’s all some form of candy or sweet.

        All goes well for a while, but then one by one, the children get into mischief and disappear until finally, there’s only little Charlie and his Uncle Joe left.

        I can’t tell you more without spoiling the entire movie. If you like excitement, adventure, and feeling like a child all over again, then you can’t miss “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”.
