This is one of the funniest things I’ve seen… I actually finished the unabridged Les Mis in January… but I saw the new movie right after Christmas (I was about 250 pages away from finishing the book).
To be honest, I didn’t like the movie because there was so much missing! I know everyone on Facebook loved it but oh well. What can you do in 2+ hours (compared to a 1,400 page book), right?
Here’s the funny stuff:
Les Miserables review by Sam Richardson….Went to the movies with my wife. We saw this obscure movie I had never heard of, some French foreign film. They must have been giving away free tickets because the lines were out the door. Anyway, the moview starts and Wolverine is singing his guts out. Then Catwoman starts crying and singing, and it’s all very moving. The only problem was, the girl next to me, who had apparently read the book or something, starts singing along. It was very distracting. So Wolverine is on the run from the Gladiator because Catwoman had a baby at Borat’s house, but now she wants Wolverine to care for her. Time Skip. A bunch of kids get shot, and in the end everyone dies. Four stars.
