I thought it was brilliant. Very wonderfully odd.
I'm listening to the music at the moment. The songs that Elfman wrote (to Dahl's lyrics) are great. Sort of Oingo Boingo-ish but not. The Veruca Salt song in particular makes me giggle. A great 60s Beatle-esque but of silliness. This is definitely going on Bull Goose Looney at Cap next year.
