Veruca Salt is a bad egg! Not nut!

So, today I woke up and turned on the TV... no news there. My 8 year old was with me and she wanted to watch Willy Wonka... not the good one, but that crap with Johnny Depp. And I love Johnny Depp... and Tim Burton, for that matter, but SERIOUSLY? What was with those weird oompa loompas that all look like each other? and the technicolor suites!? and the nut sorting squirrels!? Gene Wilder rolled over in his grave on that one. Is Gene Wilder dead?

Edit: 6/4/2016
I just reread the actual book and the newer Johnny Depp version is actually closer to the Dahl original. But I don't care. At all.
