Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Ho hum. I don't usually knit during movies because I can't knit without looking and movies are a visual medium, but this movie bored me to the point I either had to turn it off or do something else that required sitting still.

Are Johnny Depp and Christine Baranski related? Because he looked just like her in this film, and appeared to be mimicking her character from "Cybill". It was uncanny. And creepy.

I am a big Johnny Depp fan, but I don't get Tim Burton. I was hoping the Depp factor would outweigh the Burtonesque stuff, but alas, it was not to be. None of the characters stirred a modicum of interest, and neither did the "story". Definitely a big waste of time.
