Everyone talking about Les Misérables? You don’t have to watch it! Just pretend like you’re in the know too



When they say Les Mis is... I cried at the part when....

You say:
Imbeciles! It’s pronounced Les Miz.

Well, a guy steals a loaf of bread to feed his sister’s starving kids during an economic depression and ends up in prison for 19 years. Whaddaya expect?



When they say I Dreamed a Dream is the best song.

You say:
On my Own is more personal, poignant and poetic. Plus, no one has to cut their hair for it. And Empty Chairs At Empty Tables, what a song!



MiserablesWhen they say Wow the actors sound like they’re actually singing.

You say:
The songs were recorded live during filming, not mixed in later. They are actually singing and acting at the same time. Russell Crowe sang 40 takes in a row!



When they say Anne Hathaway is on screen for only half an hour, boo!

You say:
It still makes her an Oscar front-runner. Judi Dench won with barely eight minutes in Shakespeare in Love.
