Just got done watching this one. Probably not the funniest RT ever, but it did have some good, solid, laughs in it. But you could tell at times that Mike and NPH were thin on material. But it's a good effort and his plenty of hearty laughs in it. And NPH makes a great guest-riffer!

When Wonka is doing his nutty "freak out" thing on the boat, "Wouldn't it be funny if you we're on an airplane and the pilot came on the intercom and sang this very song?" and then later as Wonka is getting more intense, "Yeah. This is how I am after watching the Rachel Ray show."

Just finished watching Willy Wonka and I thought Neil Patrick did a fine job. I pretty much agree with earlier comments on this string, but I would add this is why I always say you can still riff a movie you like. There's always enough fodder to make jokes about even in classic films.
You know, I've been reconsidering my Prozac withdrawal pout about this movie. I'm going to get this one and probably everyone they put out for the concievable future. The hook is you never know when they are going to put out a classic rifftrax. That's the fun of it and for the little money involved its more than a bargin for the buck. I can honestly say that with the exception of "Lost" and "Firewall" I have found something to smile about in every Rifftrax produced.
Case in point: I hated "Wickerman" as a movie, but Mike and Kevin kept me laughing enough to watch the movie to the end just to hear what they would say next.
I don't like Willy Wonka, but I bet this rifftrax is worth the risk of getting the DVD and purchasing the trax. I'm game.
I'm looking forward to seeing this. I would guess that doing a musical might be pretty hard.
I did get confused when I first saw this thread. I thought to myself "Wait, NPH starred in a version of "Willy Wonka" that I'm not aware of?" Had to read the starting post a couple of times to get it straight.
Edit: and Gammer, I really like the DVD art you did on this one. The crumpled up gold ticket was the perfect touch!
