    For everyone saying the factory isn't in America, it actually IS American, believe it or not. The movie goes to great lengths to try and make the location ambiguous (nonsense monetary symbols, ambiguous coins, a German shoot location but everyone speaking English) but the television coverage of the Golden Ticket search we see Charlie watching always references "here in America." And in the book, he finds a "dollar" in the gutter. So signs point heavily to Wonka's being an American company.

    Ya also gotta think about the sales he's making off of the contest. Even if he doesn't immediately pass off the company to some unsuspecting kid, he'll have enough money to either deal with the fines, fix his workplace conditions, or stash until he passes the factory on.

    You forgot all the labor violations. His employees, the Oompa Loompas, aren't being paid. Their payment is their room and board. They are literal slaves (in the book, they're actually African pygmies, because Roald Dahl was highly problematic).

    Another violation I noticed that didn't get mentioned was with the stairs at 4:55. They are of uneven height, which is illegal. Stairs have to be of uniform height, otherwise you are much more likely to trip and fall.

  • F Me Jerry
    F Me Jerry 3 days ago

    Can we just address the boat ride. When MatPat says that it is ok, it is in fact, also possibly contaminating the chocolate even further. Considering that this boat has been around from months or possibly years before these events, they have been selling potentially contaminated chocolate for a while. The boat has obviously been washed, cleaned and maybe even repainted during its time, there fore getting leftover soap or anything of the sort into the chocolate

    So from the video focuses a lot on how OSHA has tons of rules that the movie violates. However, what you haven't taken into account is in what time the story takes place. The original book which the movie was based on was written somewhere in 1964 however, we can just say the setting is based in 1964 because of the year it was published that goes for the movie as well we can't just assume it takes place in 1971 when we have nothing to base it off both real world and movie world. According to Roald Dahl was inspired to write the story based on an experience he had around 1930-1934. Therefore we can assume that Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is set around the 1930's meanwhile OSHA wasn't founded until 1970 therefore Willy Wonka wouldn't receive any fines or would he have broken any rules if they haven't been applied.

    15:44- At this point, If this was Wonka's plan, then it should've been the other kids to get a pyrrhic victory of sorts that ends up ruining them. I wouldn't have minded if Veruca or Mike won- because I wouldn't feel bad if they got screwed over by the lawsuits when Wonka would hand the factory over to them as a scapegoat, given how nasty they were.

  • Grimoire666

    4:04- Even it is a gimmick made specifically by Wonka in order to screw with the minds of his guests for this particular trip, it's still a haphazard as it wasn't explicitly warned about in the contract prior to heading into the tour.

    After watching Charlie and the chocolate factory, I have a theory. I have this theory that Willy Wonka is a serial killer. He doesn’t care if the children are about to die and he celebrates once it happens. He also has that smirk face on when it happens. Charlie was the only one that didn’t make stupid decisions unlike the rest of the children.
