Laws Broken: Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory

  • How long would Willy Wonka go to jail? Are Oompa Loompas legal? How much does Charlie owe in taxes?
    Check out Skillshare!
    Have you ever watched a movie and thought “that looks illegal.” It probably is! Welcome to Laws Broken, a series on LegalEagle where I tackle your favorite movies and show you how legally irresponsible they are.
    As a lawyer, it’s hard for me to watch movies, because I’m constantly thinking about how the main characters are breaking the law or opening themselves up for civil liability. But my pain is your entertainment!
    This week we’re covering a cult classic, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (1971). I love this movie, but something always stuck me as odd about the way that Willy Wonka ran his contest. It’s never a good sign when children start turning into fruit or getting incinerated.
    Stay until the end when I tally up how long Wonka is going to jail and how much he owes the families of those poor children.
    Got a non-legal movie that seems illegal? Let me know in the comments!

    Custom Suits:
    Tie Clips/Bars:
    Pocket Squares:
    ▶ Why Indochino Suits? (50% off Premium Suits + free shipping) []: Off-the-rack suits NEVER fit right. Indochino makes fully custom suits that fit perfectly using any material I want, with all of the options I want. And they cost 1/3rd of what normal suits costs. I’ve purchased them with my own money for years, so I’m thrilled they are now a sponsor.
    ▶ Why Ties from TheTieBar? (Free shipping on orders over $50) []: Normal ties are too fat. Skinny ties are too skinny. So these days I only wear ties that are exactly 2.5” wide. They are fashionable without being hipster. You see them in all of my videos. TieBar ties are perfect, come in every color I want, and never cost more than $19.
    ▶ Why these Tie Clips? []: It’s really hard to find affordable tie clips that are the right size (1.5”), look good, and are great quality. These tie bars are all three. Plus the 3-pack gives a variety of styles. They pair perfectly with 2.5” ties from TheTieBar (above).
    ▶ Why these Pocket Squares? []: I like my pocket squares perfectly, well, square. Like straight-out-of-Mad-Men square. The only way to do that is with a stiffer material that keeps its shape. I’ve exhaustively tried dozens of pocket squares, and these are by far the best. It’s how I get the perfectly flat pocket square you see in my videos.

    I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It's one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous from a legal perspective. Today I'm taking a break from teaching law students how to crush law school to take on the movies and TV.

    Apparently, MatPat at Film Theory did a video covering the OSHA violations of Wonka's factory. Check it out! He goes into more depth about the unsafe working conditions. (I hadn't seen it before putting this video together, but it's well worth your time too).

    • K1naku5ana3R1ka

      A couple things:
      A, I believe they say (at least in the book) that the Oompa Loompas are paid in cocoa beans, which may make the slavery violation fall through.
      B, hard to say if there’s an issue with factory air being vented out in the Fizzy Lifting Drinks room (considering people can walk about the area freely, I doubt the area contains pollutants, or else the hole factory would have to have dirty air), but you missed and extremely obvious OSHA violation with the drinks being put in a room with a giant sharp ceiling fan spinning above. At least put a mesh screen on it!
      C, right after you say that, given that Wonka explicitly says the chocolate waterfall is the secret to his chocolate’s texture, I’m pretty sure that the river is a manmade project that is completely self-contained (Chocolate goes in at the top, it pours down and gets churned and mixed, then at the bottom it goes to be molded and made into candies). I highly doubt Wonka is allowing a literal river of liquid chocolate to flow out of his factory; even if he doesn’t care about pollution, imagine the waste! Though he may be throwing out waste and contaminated chocolate, where your case still stands.
      D, very minor one. Veruca’s father (the one who complains about the contract) actually comments on one very minor violation; IIRC, in the gum room where you mention trash all over the floor (and boiling chemical vats without protection, another violation you missed MatPat caught), he tells Wonka that he shouldn’t be mixing chemicals without gloves, and he’ll get in trouble with the health inspector. Though that brings up a whole lot of questions: if the factory has been cut off from the outside world for years, how is it still allowed to function if the health inspector isn’t allowed to inspect it?

      10:33 I’m pretty sure they said somewhere (though it might only be in the book) that they were paid in cocoa beans, though I may have mixed that up with them eating cocoa beans (I remember Wonka saying something in the book about a cleaner sweeping away the lettuce leaves and potato peelings and fish bones, and when asked why anyone would be eating those in the factory, Wonka said it was himself, as they hardly could expect him to live on cocoa beans).

    OBJECTION: I call for an injunction here! When you said you are a member of 5 State Bars including that of the District of Columbia, you neglected to state whether or not you are a member of the Chocolate Bar, or the Nougat Bar. Just kidding. When you say Willy Wonka violated the Law, whose laws did he violate? As Willy Wonka is clearly NOT a US citizen, nor the is he operating in the US, then you can not impose US laws on him.

    Could it not be said that the Wonka corporation would be held liable for damages either mentally or physically in the ensuing lawsuit? As Charlie would be sole proprietor during that time he would be the one taking the fall for the negligence, recklessness, and manslaughter that occurred, not Willie Wonka.

    Hey, one quick thing. While the date is not completely clear, it is fairly likely the book (and by extension, the movie) is set somewhere around the 1920's and 1930's. This makes it entirely possible that the FLSA was not inacted.

    I think the sweepstakes lingo get's a little confused at the beginning. I don't know if you've ever heard of Tim Horton's, but they have a sweepstakes called "Roll Up The Rim To Win". To win this sweepstakes you must buy a coffee and have it poured into a winning cup. However, this creates a bit of a fallacy because to win there is "No purchase necessary".
    What they mean by "No purchase necessary" is that there is no proof needed at the time of redemption that you bought the coffee to win the prize. Someone who buys a winning cup could throw it away, someone could fish it out of the garbage, and they're a winner. This Golden Ticket sweepstakes would be the same thing. You buy the chocolate bar for a chance to get the ticket, however, maybe you don't want to go. You give the ticket to a friend or relative, they are now the winner. They don't need to make a purchase.
    I think it's fair to assume that part was skipped over in the movie because who really cares.

    Objection to the point that taking on a tax burden would be bad in the long haul. If I had to pay on winning a mega successful corporation.... like say Apple, McDonald’s, Amazon..... I would gladly pay the IRS what they would assess as long as a proper valuation is done. The temporary loss would highly out weigh the future potential profit. Same logic goes for becoming a partner... or any entrepreneurial venture.

    So here’s an interesting follow up question now that Willy Wonka probably is bankrupt in jail paying fines. Would that not open concerns or investgative liability for his current production line that was being sold to consumers. Would there be any chance of opening a class action lawsuit if any of the contestants or visitors spilled the beans on how poorly the factory was run for quality control. I would imagine consumers would want to question the validity of Wonka bars/ confectionaries in current marketplace and if any safety recalls were ever issued .

    Pretty sure that under uk law, Charlie as a minor is too young to be prosecuted for engaging in a criminal conspiracy that he’s been coerced into by an influential party.
    Not only does it form a case for entrapment, but Charlie is too young to be held accountable for his actions given the coercion he faced.

    You’re translating the law of one country to a different country.
    Yes, you can talk about how these laws work in the USA, but you’re talking about the legal consequences of people who aren’t US citizens and who are acting not within the jurisdiction of the US.
    You can state what laws Wonka violates if you don’t begin by accepting the judicial system he exists in.
    I mean “Dead man walking” violates uk law which prohibits capital punishment, but you’d rightfully be outraged if I pretended that I could judge that film and its characters by UK law.
    Yes, it’s perfectly ok to look at this film from the stand point of US Law, but you should also tip your hat to the legal system of the country the film’s based in.
    I mean, you’re a lawyer making internationally available videos about Law.
    Would it hurt to recognise your audience exists outside the USA, and to adapt to engage them as well? (Especially if you’re using their stories.)

    Even today in the uk, kids as young as 13 can work a paper round.
    Pretty sure 30 years ago I had a paper round at age 12, but even allowing for faulty memory and/or legal changes and a desire to make this video about contemporary Law, kids in the uk can still do a paper round at 13 today.
    But, making the legal case contemporaneous to the time of the film, kids in the uk could have a paper round at 12 or younger.
    Remember, you’re talking about Law, which means accepting legal history and contemporary legal statutes.
    After all, why talk about law if you don’t acknowledge the fact that it evolves?
    For instance, watching 12 years a slave, you’d be right to state that slavery is illegal in the USA, but you’d be wrong to pretend that it was contemporaneously illegal and ignore how (or even just the fact that) the law evolved.

  • Lorenzo
    Lorenzo 18 days ago

    I just realized something:
    Wonka probably didn't expect any of these unfortunate "mishaps" with the kids to happen. Eventually, after 4 cases that could probably ruin Wonka's confectionery empire and possibly land him in prison for life, he decided to come up with an exit strategy. After a period of thinking, Wonka realized he didn't have many options and Charlie attempting to steal from him was just too much to bear in that stressful moment so he attempts to chase Charlie away. Then, as Wonka resorted to weep on his desk, Charlie places the gobstopper in front of him. Slugworth! He almost forgot about this rude! Wonka, being a smart and resourceful businessman realized that even after he leaves, if he is the owner of the factory he will have to also worry about the various OSHA and labor law violations in his factory.
    He finally decided that he will leave control of Wonka Confectioners Inc. to Charlie. Slugworth and Charlie will be stuck dealing with the legal aftermath and will have to try to explain they're position after Wonka leaks the conspiracy they engaged in to the courts.
    So Wonka takes to his Space elevator to fly over to his newly emptied private and uncharted island called Loompaland, a place which only he and the enslaved Oompa-Loompas are aware of. He gets off at the island and presses the buttons to send newly appointed CEO, Charlie, to deal with the legal shitstorm his company is about to face.
    Wonka is a genius

    How is wonka's golden ticket illegal when many food companies offer the possibility of prizes by purchasing their products.

How is Wonka's golden ticket any different from those things?

    You are forgetting that Willy Wonka is a Time Lord, human laws do not apply to him.

    Objection, the country which this appears to be in is in the United Kingdom and the laws of the united states would therefore not be applied except to the wonka factories in the united states

    Please state which update and of which country is the constitution that your review is based on, just for clarification

    Well... I guess we know why Wonka wanted to get rid of that factory. 😂

    This movie wasn't made in the United States. It was made in Germany. Your "mistakes" for this movie are not valid. United States laws don't fit here

    Objection. The EPA and OSHA did not exist at the time of this story. Accidents, such as the ones featured in this movie, are the reasons these agencies were created. Also, the nut factory is in the UK and not subject to American law.

    You know the kids didn’t die right?

    Objection! This was likely mentioned already but none of the kids were killed. A throwaway line by Willy Wonka towards the end outright states that no harm came to the children and they'll be back to their normal, horrible selves. But, perhaps, a little wiser.
    As for the paper routes: I distinctly remember kids Charlie's age, sometimes younger, having paper routes. The U.S. Department of Labor even lists newspaper delivery as being exempt from the child labor protection portion of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Charlie's job is probably the most accurate part of the film.
