Description

Dahl's screenplay, based on Ian Fleming's novel, achieves the anticipated level of mischief and dark humour as we witness the legendary flying car taking Professor Potts, Truly Scrumptious, Jemima and Jeremy off to a faraway world where children are trapped by a vicious child catcher and locked away out of sight. With a great score by the Sherman brothers and hearty performances by Dick Van Dyke et al, it is easy to see why, almost 40 years on, the movie has achieved its status as one of the greatest family films of all time.
