Great film, some iffy content.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the story of Charlie Bucket (Freddie Highmore), a young boy who is chosen - along with bratty kids Augustus Gloop (Philip Wiegratz), Violet Beauregarde (AnnaSophia Robb), Veruca Salt (Julia Winter), and Mike Teavee (Jordan Fry) - to take a tour of Willy Wonka's (Johnny Depp) chocolate factory. At the factory, lots of zany adventures happen, including a girl being tossed down a garbage chute, and a boy being shrunk.
Iffy content is as follows. Adults and kids are constantly mean to each other (all with the exception of Charlie and his family). One double-entendre is present ("Don't touch that squirrel's nuts!"), and profanity consists of one use of "hell". No product placement in the film itself, but Wonka candy is real, and kids may want to buy it if they see the movie. We see a brief shot of Mrs. Salt drinking alcohol.
Great film, OK for kids 8+.
