"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. 4/4*" - Roger Ebert
"A vibrant, imaginative fantasy reveals a layer of grimness beneath the confection." - Radio Times
"The casting of Gene Wilder in the title role is the key: there is a crazed, yet knowing, glint in his eye that suggests the world of corporate confectionery is more sillier and sinister than we will ever know." - Herald Sun
