Having just read the book again before I went, I was really pleased at 
the way the book captured the slighty oddball, slightly nasty tone of 
Dahl. I thought the added thing about the dentist father was okay, I 
mean, it was the kind of thing Dahl could easily have written. I loved 
the art direction, and the oompa loompa.

Really? Why not? My 5 year old who is quite sensitive about "scary" 
movies (Spongebob was too scary, and so was Cinderella) adored it. We 
went 3 times.
