* InkStainAdaptation: While it's become a widely-loved film over the years, as noted above under AdaptationDisplacement, beyond the U.K. most people know the story of ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' via this film, which is also the source of [[CharlieAndTheChocolateParody almost all the parody versions]]. Many fans tend to bristle at subsequent TruerToTheText adaptations (even ones that acknowledge the film via InternalHomage, such as the 2013 stage musical) out of hand for not duplicating this version's events and look, which is why the 2005 film hasn't aged very well. Given that Creator/RoaldDahl [[DisownedAdaptation disowned this film]], he likely wouldn't be happy to know that it's become the public face of his story for much of the world.

** The line directly before, ''"You stole Fizzy Lifting Drinks!"'', has also become popular.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Veruca is probably the most remembered character aside from Mr. Wonka and the Oompa Loompas, thanks to her hamminess.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Violet Beauregarde in the 2005 movie. While all the other children, sans Charlie, are spoiled rotten by her parents, it's all but stated that Violet's mother is a StepfordSmiler StageMom who pushes her daughter into being the best at everything she does. Her mother even ''encourages'' her to try the gum which turns her into a giant blueberry, despite witnessing what happened to the last few children who defied Wonka.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The tunnel scene, which comes and then is never mentioned again, even though realistically such an event would likely cause the characters to ''demand to be let out of this factory''. It's also a DisneyAcidSequence, total NightmareFuel, and, ironically, probably the movie's most famous scene.

** The Wonkamobile scene doesn't advance the plot. The guests get messy, and then they get clean, and then they do to the next
scene.



* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop:
** 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, [[PerpetualPoverty 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]].

* 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.
