Solid Rifftrax. Didn't really get going until the factory tour began, but it was non-stop awesome from there. I blame the source material. NPH did a great job with the riffing. Maybe he did a couple more while he was around...

    Solid all the way. This movie was a drug trip though. If not for the riffing, I would never watch it on its own (Oompa Loompas scare the hell out of me). Neil Patrick Harris did a very fine job, too. His timing was perfect and he played off Mike very well. I'd like to see him back for more movies in the future.

I've always found it hilarious just how quickly the parents freak out, the first room they go into has a forced perspective and they're going "Wonka get us out of here!"

They freak out, overly, at the forced prespective room but then moments later after Augustus is sucked through a pipe they take it in stride.  Then after the maddening ferry ride... they press on.  After a child is turned into a blueberry, they press on.  After a child falls down a garbage chute they press on.  After a child is SHRUNKEN by a crazy contraption they go on!!!  But a crazy forced-precpetcitve room they're ready to quit.

Yeah. None of them had and ANY sense of prespective.... Heh.

NPH is just hilarious, and such a hottie.  I'd like for him to throw me down and-- wait a minute, my officemate wants to tell me something...

DAMMIT.

Well.  Good job, anyway, Neil.

Three cheers for Neil Patrick Wonka. I thought he did a great job & hope he comes back for more Rifftrax.   :clap:

I thought it was brilliant.  I actually thought the first hour was the best, with the soul crushingly depressing life of Charlie being riffed on to hilarious effect.  NPH was really great, playing off MIke well and providing some stellar riffing of his own.  I join the ranks of those hoping for more Riffs from the man in the future.

I only saw this movie a couple of times as a kid, tops, because it freaked me right out.

At 30, it's only gotten worse.  Largely because I've learned about acid since then. 

I cannot get over the FOUR GRANDPARENTS in the SAME BED.  I lost track of the dumptrucks of issues this presents. 

Grandpa Joe sucks.  Love how he pisses over how crappy his life is-- nope, nothing good like a wife and a child and a grandchild--until he gets a chocolate factory tour.  Well!  Now he's got some meaning!

I also like the way he tells Charlie that he will find a golden ticket, breaking the kid's heart a couple of times before he actually find one.  Nice parenting, Grandprick!

Yeah, Grandpa is pretty much the perfect example of how to build up a child's unrealistic goals.

I also agree that NPH rules, more, more!

This gave me quite an uproarious laugh. Lady Kenobi for guest riffer!

My friend Sean has an entire rant about what a DICK Grandpa Joe is; I'll have to see if there's a copy of it somewhere that I can post.
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."
