I have said it before and I will say it again, I have no intention of seeing Les Misérables because it is depressing and I don’t want to cry over a musical whose music is just OK. While I knew that, others do not and now their tears are being shared on YouTube. Remember the mom who phonecorded her two little boys who couldn’t stop crying over the heartfelt The Odd Life of Timothy Green? Well now it is the children turning the phones on their parents bawling over a movie. And it isn’t only kids doing it, it’s friends doing it to friends. So before you go to see the movie, make sure you confiscate the smart phones of the people you are going with or be prepared to be on YouTube crying like a baby.
Seriously who wants to go see a movie that is going to make you weep uncontrollably in public? I know I don’t and especially not for Les Misérables.
