We went to an 11:00 AM showing this morning that was packed. I was afraid my 26-year-old son wouldn't enjoy it as much as I would. Everyone in my family thought it was fabulous! Anne Hathaway deserves an oscar nomination for her rendition of *I Had a Dream* alone. The entire cast was awesome. However Russell Crowe was a little too bland.

Screen version of Phantom disappointed me. This did NOT disappoint. Anne Hathaways performance of "I DREAMED a Dream" was amazing. Although Marius had a decent voice, the character calls for a better looking actor.

there were a couple of moments in the movie I thought his voice could have used some work, a couple of moments I thought it would have been better to stick closer to the melody then his let me sound like I'm speaking. But it was very effective in many parts of the movie going for a slightly more realistic feel then a strict musical feel.

a. i, personally, thought anne was amazing. my mother did not. she said that anne was too cry-y. b. we both agreed crowe wasn't terrible, but not what we had built him up to be. c. cosette was perfect. for that dumbass blonde who plays the worst roles..... she was fabulous. her voice... wow. d. marius was gorgeous and sang like a lark. i found him to be believable and fantastic.
