''Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'' is the second film version of Creator/RoaldDahl's [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory most popular book]]. (The first, released in 1971, was given the title ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory''.) While TruerToTheText than the 1971 film in many aspects, it is also subject to AdaptationExpansion, namely in giving Willy Wonka a backstory that figures heavily into the final act.

This version, directed by Creator/TimBurton and released in 2005, features Creator/JohnnyDepp as Wonka, and a supporting cast that includes [[Film/SherlockHolmes James Fox]], Creator/DeepRoy, [[Film/GalaxyQuest Missi Pyle]], Creator/DeepRoy, Creator/HelenaBonhamCarter, Creator/DeepRoy, Creator/ChristopherLee, Creator/DeepRoy, Creator/DeepRoy, Creator/DeepRoy, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Deep Roy]], [[OverlyLongGag and Deep Roy]].

----
!!This film provides examples of (in addition to many of the [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory source novel's tropes]]):
* ActingForTwo [[UpToEleven Thousand]]: Every single Oompa-Loompa is played by Creator/DeepRoy. He had to be filmed as each and every individual "unique" one of them. (Of course some shots are recycled)
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Willy Wonka is played by ''Johnny Depp''. Enough said.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: Mike Teevee is turned from the excitable, television obsessed kid he is in the book to a jaded InsufferableGenius who couldn't care less about chocolate.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Depp's portrayal of Wonka. While the original book character could be a bit of a JerkAss at times, here he's more of an apathetic and self-absorbed braggart. Luckily, he gets better by the end of the film.
** Also, Augustus Gloop, to a mild degree. As the tour group heads towards the Chocolate Room, he asks Charlie if he wants some of his chocolate, only to immediately tell him that he should have brought his own. In the novel and 1971 film he doesn't really do anything until he starts drinking from the chocolate river.
* AdaptationExpansion: The subplot about Willy Wonka's childhood and his relationship with his dentist father.
* AdaptedOut: Mr. Beauregarde and Mrs. Teavee.
* AnachronismStew: Burton likes making his settings more symbolic than realistic. Therefore, to see Charlie Bucket's family living in near Creator/CharlesDickens-style poverty in one scene and Mike Teevee's videogames in the next is a tad jarring for some, despite the Buckets having their own TV. And Charlie's grandpa gives him a Peace dollar -- an American, silver, 1920s/30s dollar.
* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Düsseldorf is portrayed as an Alpine wooden-house village, instead of the modern industrial capital of the Ruhr, which is far from ''any'' mountains.
* ArtShift: Music shift to be more precise, as each of the Oompa-Loompas' songs has a different theme. Augustus's is based on Bollywood spectacle, as suggested by Deep Roy. Violet's song is derived from [='70s=] funk. Veruca's has a very Beatles-esque feel to it. Mike's is a HardRock song.
* BigDoor: The Chocolate Room has an {{Inverted|Trope}} case of this -- the door is incredibly tiny, likely so Oompa-Loompas can easily get in. (Mr. Wonka also claims it's "to keep the great big chocolate freshness inside!") The space is so small that the normal-sized protagonists are slouching.
* BigFancyHouse: The Salt family lives in one.
* BreakUpMakeUpScenario: Between [[spoiler: Willy Wonka and his father]].
* BusbyBerkeleyNumber: The Oompa Loompas do one during the "Augustus Gloop" song.
* CloningBlues: Not the Oompa-Loompas, but rather the actor playing them.
* CreditsMedley: All five of the musical numbers are strung together into a mostly-instrumental medley for the end credits.
* CulturalTranslation: Both Mike Teevee and Violet Beauregarde are American in this version (and Augustus Gloop is German) -- although since the characters' nationalities were left deliberately ambiguous in the book and the tickets were explicitly said to be available all over the world, this is a relatively realistic touch. (It's also a bit of LostInImitation -- it follows on from the 1971 film, which, unlike the novel, assigned nationalities to the brats.) On a less thought-out level, though, several of the English characters use Americanisms (like "candy" when referring to sweets), and their currency is, for some reason, dollars. For that matter, the opening scene implies that the factory may be in France, as the bicycles are motorized in a way that was only mass produced in France and not exported as a mass-market item.
* DemotedToExtra: Mr. Gloop and Mrs. Salt.
* {{Expy}}: Willy Wonka's personality, traits and backstory mirrors that of [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Krusty the Clown]].
* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: The melting of the singing puppets by pyrotechnics.
* {{Fantasy-Forbidding Father}}: Willy Wonka is given one of these as part of the AdaptationExpansion. Mr. Wonka, Sr., is a dentist who doesn't allow his son to eat candy, driving Willy to rebel against him to achieve his dream of being a chocolatier.
* TheFilmOfTheBook
* {{Flashback}}: There are several as the tour progresses, each one inspired by Charlie's innocent questions/comments, that reveal Willy Wonka's backstory. Flashbacks are also used to illustrate Grandpa Joe's stories of how the factory came to be and was later closed, the tale of Prince Pondicherry, the explanations of how Augustus and Veruca got their tickets, and Mr. Wonka's stories of 1) how he discovered the Oompa-Loompas and 2) realized he needed an heir (all of these also count as SeparateSceneStorytelling).
* FlashbackStares: Mr. Wonka is prone to these and actually apologizes for spacing out at one point.
* ForWantOfANail: Because of the increase of demand for chocolate due to the contest Mr. Bucket's job (toothpaste factory) makes extra money and decide to modernize, this results in Mr. Bucket losing his job. [[spoiler: Later, he gets a better-paying job at the same factory repairing the machine that replaced him!]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When everyone is entering the factory, Wonka seems to have trouble saying the word "Parents," which at first one might just assume is part of his eccentricity, however, it turns out to be a big plot point, [[spoiler: what with his father issues and all]].
* FreudianCouch: [[spoiler: Willy Wonka]] ends up on one of these near the end.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar
** "Don't touch that squirrel's nuts! It'll make him crazy!"
** The ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' parody during the Mike Teavee musical number. Though we the audience never see the girl in the shower save her legs and feet, [[DoubleEntendre looks like poor Mikey saw a little too much]].
* IAmGreatSong: "Willy Wonka! Willy Wonka! The amazing chocolatier!" Also a serious EarWorm. It's sung by the puppets, before their [[ItMakesSenseInContext accidental immolation]].
* ICanSeeMyHouseFromHere
* ImAHumanitarian: Several of Mr. Wonka's lines strongly imply he's tried eating people!
* InsurmountableWaistHeightFence: It does not occur to Mr. Salt to ''vault'' the safety railing in order to keep his daughter from being dragged to her doom.
* ITasteDelicious: In the end, Augustus is rather reluctant to stop licking the fudge coating off of his body, despite his mother's insistence.
* LampshadeHanging:
** Charlie asks how the Oompa-Loompas knew Augustus' name (and personality) in their CrowdSong, a PlotHole that the book doesn't address with regards to any of the kids. Wonka claims it's skilled improvisation, but...
** Mr. Salt remarks on how choreographed the Augustus number looks -- implying that Wonka researched his victims, planned traps for them, and trained the Oompa-Loompas to celebrate their downfalls in [[BatmanGambit a masterpiece of pre-planning]].
** When Wonka sizes up the kids for the first time, he remarks that Charlie's "just lucky to be here, aren't you?"
* LostInImitation: While this film mostly avoids this trope with regards to the 1971 version, it does keep the same nationalities that film established for the children, while also [[AdaptationExpansion giving most of them hometowns]] -- Augustus is from Düsseldorf (which suffers from a bad case of [[HollywoodAtlas Hollywood Geography]]), Veruca is from Buckinghamshire, Violet is from {{Atlanta}}, Mike is from UsefulNotes/{{Denver}}, and Charlie is still ambiguously British/American. Keep in mind that in the book all the characters' nationalities are ambiguous -- most subsequent adaptations have picked up on the 1971 precedent.
* LyricalDissonance: (to a [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles-y]] tune)
-->'''Oompas:''' Veruca Salt, the little brute, has just gone down the garbage chute!
-->And she will meet, as she descends, a rather different set of friends!
-->'''Oompa:''' A fish head, for example, cut this morning from a halibut...
* TheMelBrooksNumber: Music/DannyElfman turns the Oompa-Loompa songs into a gorgeously orchestrated game of GenreRoulette, but the lyrics are still about naughty kids getting their comeuppance, and the visuals spoof everything from Busby Berkeley numbers to heavy metal videos.
* TheMonolith: Featured in a demonstration of Wonka's matter transmutation device...as part of a clip straight out of ''2001: A Space Odyssey'', no less.
* MusicalWorldHypothesis: Diegetic. The Oompas' "improvisation" is lampshaded.
* NarratorAllAlong: It turns out it's [[spoiler: one of the Oompa-Loompas]].
* NoOshaCompliance: Pretty straightforward. The overhead railings in the Inventing Room are particularly egregious. Amusingly, the one time the trope is subverted is in the Nut Room, with its ''so''-inconvenient locked safety gate.
* NotHisSled: There's some pretty crazy AdaptationExpansion here: Charlie is the last kid standing, but [[spoiler: initially has to refuse the offer to become Mr. Wonka's heir because he won't let him bring his family with him. Only when he helps Mr. Wonka reconcile with his father is the happy ending free to commence]].
* ObjectTrackingShot: The making of a Wonka Bar is the basis for the opening credits sequence.
* SceneryPorn: The 1971 film had its moments with regards to this trope, given its modest budget, but with Creator/TimBurton, CGI, and a mega-budget brought to bear upon this story...
* SettingUpdate: To the TurnOfTheMillennium, most obviously with regards to Mike Teavee (see TechnologyMarchesOn below), though Charlie's town doesn't seem quite so tied down to that time period as the rest of the world is.
* SheFu: Violet's movement after the events.
* ShoutOut:
** The toothpaste factory Mr. Bucket works for is called ''Smilex''; Wonka's throne is the same one used by [[Creator/JackNicholson The Joker]] during the [[Film/{{Batman}} parade scene]]. There's also a ribbon cutting with [[Film/EdwardScissorhands Johnny Depp holding a very large pair of scissors]].
** "[[Theatre/{{Hair}} The Earth says]]... Hello!"
** The scene where Wonka sends the giant chocolate bar to the TV is one to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Complete with a monolith and "''Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra''".
*** The following scene where Mike's dad rescues him [[spoiler:from the TV set after he gets miniaturized himself]]: "[[Film/TheFly Help me! Help me!]]" [[{{Beetlejuice}} It's actually the second time Burton has used the gag.]]
* SignatureStyle: Tim Burton likes to create a contrast between places of wonder, which are bright and colorful, and mundane places, which are dark and dreary. In the context of a Roald Dahl adaptation, it works.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: The toothpaste factory where Charlie's dad used to work. In the book, it was said he lost his job because the factory went bankrupt. In the film, the factory fired him and bought a machine to replace him.
* SpoiledBrat: Pretty much all of the other kids, but Veruca -- '''DEAR GOD''' -- she takes this up to the prime maximum.
* SummerBlockbuster: A triple-digit budget and the huge production values that implies, a big-name star, a big-name director...and it was released in the U.S. and U.K. in July 2005.
* TechnologyPorn: The opening sequence showing the creation of the chocolate bars.
* TotallyRadical: PlayedForLaughs. As a side effect of having isolated himself from the rest of the world for so long, Willy Wonka tends to speak this way to children, using slang and references that wander from TheFifties to TheSeventies.
* UltraSuperDeathGoreFestChainsawer3000: It's hard not to wonder whether Tim Burton read [[http://web.archive.org/web/20030718142748/http://www.bookofratings.com/wonka.html this]]. Having Mike be from [[UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} suburban Denver, Colorado]] was most likely just the icing on the cake.
* UpToEleven: In Willy Wonka's flashback, [[spoiler: Willy decides to run away from home after an argument with his dad]]. Wilbur responds, "I won't be here when you get back." ''[[ItMakesAsMuchSenseInContext Neither is the house.]]''
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Due to the book never being clear on whether Charlie Bucket and the Factory are located in England or America, Burton purposely made it ambiguous in the film; English and American accents are thrown around indiscriminately, people drive on the right in some scenes and the left in others, and paper money consists of bluish-pink "guinea" notes. And despite the entire population of the town (apparently) speaking English, the motorized bicycles used in the opening are uniquely ''French''.
