"Probably the best film of its sort since The Wizard of Oz. It is everything that family movies usually claim to be, but aren't: Delightful, funny, scary, exciting, and, most of all, a genuine work of imagination." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Every time you watch it you're newly impressed by its heartfelt story line, unfussy direction, wit and humor (with Gene Wilder giving a performance for the ages)." - Peter Canavese, Celluloid Dreams

"We all know who can sprinkle a sunrise with dew, who can make all your childhood wishes come true: the one and only candy man, Willy Wonka." - Douglas Davidson, Elements of Madness

"All it took was memorable musical numbers, one of the movies' greatest comedic performers in the lead role, and a great deal of influence from the psychedelic undercurrents of the time when it was made." - Stephen Silver, Tilt Magazine

"Wilder brought a kindness and gentleness to the main character while infusing Wonka with a whimsical, childlike innocence." - Allison Rose, FlickDirect
