I keep trying to get rid of mine, but it won't leave without a fight.

I tossed it in the trash about two years ago. My boyfriend, assuming anything Phantom is valuable to me, rescued it. A few months later, I tossed it again. His father saw it in the bag and pulled it out because he assumed it was tossed by mistake. When he wasn't looking, I tossed it back in the bag. Either I missed the bag or the bag tore on the way to the garage because this summer, I found the remains of it in the backyard.
HahahAHAHAHA! This made me laugh out loud!

A rare comment from Cameron on this film:

Cameron Mackintosh wrote: I had nothing to do with the film adaptation of Phantom of the Opera, but to be honest, I would have wanted to do the film differently.

Hmm, yes, most interesting.
Does that mean he would've wanted to do the film *better*? Cool

Given that he's using the new tour as a model for the way he wanted to do it, the "better" part is probably debatable. But I do think he's right in claiming the material needs a sense of darkness, and a contrast between the glamorous world of the opera and the shadow realm the Phantom inhabits. Schumacher was gilded and glitzy from start to finish, and it killed the mood of the story.

Yes, well said, LCD -- I quite agree with all the above!

I didn't think it was possible for this film to get any more ridiculous then how I remember it from 2004. Then I was shown this, from the 'Stranger Than You Dreamt It' scene:



...yeah.

Does Bed, Bath and Beyond specialise in phallic objects?

I wonder what other naughty things one could find sprinkled throughout the film. Surprised that the HP people haven't found this one yet and come up with some odd reason for it being there (and so close to his face).
