* AssPull: How on Earth did the [[spoiler: fake Slugworth, who apparently is Wonka's right-hand man]] come and go from the factory without anyone noticing him? And how did he manage to be in [[ContrivedCoincidence 5 different places in the world at the exact time where the 5 winners would find their respective tickets to congratulate them]], and then tempt to sell out Wonka and his latest invention? Unless of course, the entire competition ''was rigged''.

* SpecialEffectFailure: The reason for the AdaptationSpeciesChange from nut-sorting squirrels to golden chocolate egg-laying geese was to ''avoid'' this trope, as the filmmakers knew there was no hope of pulling off the squirrels with turn-of-the-Seventies tech.

** Even when the film was released, kids could tell the "candy" the children try to eat during "Pure Imagination" are inflated balloons.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Fans of the book cannot decide which version is the superior adaption, this or the 2005 film. This production invokes more nostalgia, devitates from the book, and takes more risks with mixed results. Whereas the 2005 film follows much more closely to Roald Dahl's work.

** Charlie here, unlike in the book, is ''totally desperate'' for that ticket. He would still be miserable and unhappy unless he had his golden ticket. The real-life equivalent is to say, [[PerpetualProverty you'll always be unhappy unless you win the lottery]]. That's not a good moral for the children, or indeed, adults. The Johnny Depp version at least averted this with a [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Charlie who values his family far more than his dreams or future prospects]].
