Who can deny that the film's overall intention is positive, playful fun. The film is a joy. (40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition, Blu-ray)

It's all wonderfully colorful and imaginative, and filled with a multitude of references and jokes that will be understood only by adults.

...filled with good humor, good acting, and good songs...and it's just off kilter enough to keep everyone's attention.

Director Mel Stuart [doesn't] shy away from bringing Dahl's unique, slightly twisted vision to the screen intact.

Ainda que um ou outro número musical comprometa o ritmo, o clima de fantasia e a atuação calorosa de Wilder conquistam o espectador.

Aspires to the whimsy and fantasy of The Wizard of Oz but doesn't really capture the magic… more a fond tribute to 'pure imagination' than a triumph of it.

It has a higher degree of imagination going for it than similar films, and while it sounds overly sugary the story and some of the characters have a bite to them that will keep you from going into insulin shock.
