Question: When Charlie goes into the candy shop and gets a Scrumdiddlyumptious bar, he gobbles it down and the man warns him he'll get a stomach ache. The fifth golden ticket had been found (or so Charlie thinks at this point), so he can't be digging for it. I've never understood: what was the point in eating it so fast?
Question: If Roald Dahl hated the way the movie was being made, why in the DVD special features, does it show him on set with cast and crew looking like he's having a good time with everyone?
Question: In the end credits, Peter Capell is credited for playing "The Tinker" and Peter Stuart is credited for playing "Winkelmann." I have no idea who these characters were in the movie. Does anyone know which characters they were?
Question: If Augustus Gloop had not fallen into the river, where would he and his mother sit on the boat? There appear to be no empty seats and everyone left gets on board.
Question: At the beginning of the song, "I want it now", did Veruca say she wanted a "big feast" or a "bean feast"? If it's the latter, what exactly is it?
Question: What is the joke when they are auctioning the box of Wonka bars, and the auctioneer gasps 'Your majesty'?
Question: At the end of the movie, Wonka tells Charlie and his grandfather that they do not get the lifetime supply of chocolate because they drank the bubble juice and floated to the ceiling, thus breaking the rules. Charley then places his share of the everlasting gobstopper next to Wonka and all of a sudden, Wonka is very friendly and gives Charlie the entire factory. Did I miss something?
Question: What are the lyrics and name of the song Willy sings during the creepy boat ride?
Question: I've read that all 5 children in the story represent one (or more) of the seven deadly sins. What is the exact rundown of this?
Question: What is the translation of what Wonka says, after getting off the boat, going into the testing room?
Question: What was the significance of the scene on the boat? To me it always seemed quite irrelevant, albeit scary (for a child), and now when it is shown on TV, most of the time this scene is edited out anyway. So why was it in there in the first place? Was it more important in the book?
Question: When the people are on the boat ride, can anyone tell me what the things in the pictures on the walls are?
Question: Did Wonka intend for those 5 kids to find the golden tickets? In other words, did he have Charlie in mind as the heir all along? It looked like the candy shop owner purposely gave Charlie the bar with the ticket in it. Also, Wonka treated Charlie kindly upon meeting him at the gate whereas he was sarcastic to everyone else-including Grandpa Joe, who didn't deserve the abrupt rudeness.
Question: When the first golden ticket is found, it seems like the news reporter has antlers on his head. Did they intentionally do that, or was it an accident?
Question: Was there any significance to Wonka's 'half-room' aside from showing his eccentricity?
Question: When Slugworth is trying to bribe Charlie into bringing him the Everlasting Gobstopper, he says that his reward will be "10,000 of these" as he shows Charlie a bunch of money. Does anyone know what "those" were and how much "they" were worth? They look too big to be American dollars.
