Phantom of the Opera in Fifteen Minutes

As promised: Phantom of the Opera in Fifteen Minutes. I'm still counting up the fundraising, but we'll have a final count soon. I'm already running late with the book manuscript, but this was a very quick write--it practically parodies itself, and it was fun, and a good palate cleanser.



ETA 4/02/05: Okay. I'm gonna try to be real clear about this. I really, really liked the movie. I liked the book. I have never seen the show, but I would probably like it, and I ended up really enjoying the music. I like the actors involved. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ME COMMENTS ABOUT MY "HATE" FOR THE MOVIE. The point of these parodies is "affectionate snark." The jokes are written with love. If I hated the movie, I wouldn't bother. If you think I'm not funny, that's one thing, but please don't leave me long screeds about how I didn't "understand" or "appreciate" the movie, because you're preaching to the choir. (Yes, I have received, and am still receiving, a lot of these. Two today alone, in fact.)

P.S. Please look up the difference between "heroin" and "heroine" before you complain about my "Heroine Addict" icons. It's a pun. It's supposed to be a positive thing. I'm not calling anyone a drug user. Thank you, and enjoy.





Oh, and since it always comes up: I never have a problem with anyone leaving comments. In fact, if you'd like, you can leave them in the comments for me to see. But please don't copy or repost the entire thing anywhere; excerpts and links are always fine, though.

ETA: Minor corrections have been made to dates and a couple of names.

OH MY GOD, HE'S SLIGHTLY UNATTRACTIVE ON ONE SIDE! TO ARMS!Collapse )

So many comments on this, yet i don't want to read them, but BRILLANT!!!!! Simply OUTSTANDING!!! I loved it, laughed my ass off, esp. "CHRISTINE: But—well, there he goes. Well, what should I wear for dinner? I know—a dressing gown that shows off my new lace garters!" HOW TRUE! lol i wondered about that whenever i saw Phantom for the first time. Once again, that was GREAT! thank you!!!

I've been meaning to leave a comment ever since this was posted, but .... meh. I'm lazy.

But really - you summed up all of my thoughts in regards to this movie in this m15m entry and your actual review. So you rock ass hardcore, man ... for lack of better phrasing. And there were references to the book! Huzzah. I'm a "book!Phan," but I do like the ALW musical because I derive so much terrible gratification from its complete and utter silliness - which was only magnified a 100x more by the movie. I think I completely lost it too when I first saw the title song in theaters. So much 80s cum Meatloaf cheese and gratuitous Cocteau thievery! I went into overload.

And the Dread Pirate Roberts Corps de Ballet has had me laughing all week. <3

Just wanted to let you know that a person (nickname: ebarkle_05) posted your "Phantom in 15 Minutes" on the IMDb Phantom message board without mentioning your name and without a link back. So pobably without your permission?

Yeah, just so you know, I read this in its entirety *BEFORE* seeing the movie. And during the OMGDRAMATICPASSIONDONJUANWTF scene, when the rest of the audience was watching raptly and silently, I was trying to control my hysterical laughter at the Dread Pirate Roberts Corps du Ballet. XD

Really, you can't blame that on me, because my mother and I were laughing through the DPR Squad without the benefit of anyone having called it that yet. ; )

THE PHANTOM: Christine? You came back?

CHRISTINE: I just wanted to give you the ring. You know. As a token. Of my eternal… affection. Yeah. “Affection.” And my phone number. And my forwarding address.


I've never seen the play, so I gasped when the Phantom turned around and Christine was there, with the trembling underlip of repressed lust. And then-- she gave back the ring. Heh.

Brilliant, as always!
