** Watch Augustus during the scene where everyone in crammed into the single room "elevator". While everyone is panicking and stumbling into each other, he leans up against the wall and goofily slides up and down. According to Julie Dawn Cole and Paris Themmen, this is because Michael Bollner knew very little English beyond the script (which is why he has so few lines), so the direction of what to do in the room got LostInTranslation.

** The reporter covering Augustus Gloop is introduced standing in front of a wall with a deer head mounted on it, so it looks like the antlers are coming out of the reporter's head.

** At the end of the movie after the tour is over. After all the fun we had on that tour, it suddenly goes quiet. Grandpa Joe and Charlie step into Wonka's office to ask about the chocolate only to find out he broke the rules, then suddenly, Wonka starts yelling at the top of his lungs over why they lost. After which, the room goes silent again until Charlie does a good deed, and suddenly, everybody is happy!

* AIIsACrapshoot: In a brief scene during the "worldwide obsession" segment, a scientist programs a computer to figure out where the last three golden tickets are, but the computer has other ideas. It refuses, saying, "That would be cheating." The scientist tries to bribe the computer with the grand prize, but the computer, being a smartass, rebuffs him, asking, "What would a a computer do with a lifetime supply of chocolate?"

* HonestJohnsDealership: Mr. Beauregarde owns a car lot and he's implied to be this when he tries to get Violet out of signing Wonka's contract.



* SevenDeadlySins: The children's flaws. Augustus is Gluttony; Veruca is Greed; Violet is Pride; Mike is Sloth(and possibly Wrath); and, with very valid reason, Charlie is Envy.

* SmashCut: The serenity of the "Cheer Up Charlie" number cuts abruptly to the media circus coverage of Mike having found the fourth ticket, specifically a violent Western on his television.

** When Veruca exclaims in the Inventing Room that Wonka's behavior is "absolutely bonkers", Charlie defends Wonka, saying, "And that's not bad!" Charlie's ability to embrace and understand the playfulness and eccentric creativity of Wonka's factory where the other children couldn't/wouldn't points to him as the right child [[spoiler:to inherit the factory]].

* GeniusDitz: Mr. Turkentine both times we see him. He isn't above EducationThroughPyrotechnics, mixing three "highly dangerous ingredients" including an unknown mixture he concocted. Later on, he goes into detail on the arithmetic equations on percentages but can't calculate what percent 2 is of 1,000.

* EnforcedMethodActing: The kids did not meet Gene Wilder prior to the shooting of his entrance, and they didn't know about the fake limp/somersault (they thought he was actually injured in some way,) so their reactions to that scene are genuine.
** The kids also hadn't seen the Chocolate Room prior to filming, their reactions to the amazing scenery were real there as well.
** During rehearsals for the "You lose!" scene, Gene Wilder spoke in a much less vitriolic tone; Jack Alberston and Peter Ostrum's reactions to him yelling at them during the actual filming of the scene were real. Wilder supposedly wanted to warn Peter about it because they had developed a bond and he didn't want to scare him, the director had to convince him not to in order to get a natural reaction from Ostrum.
