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 )

Oh, God. I know you have no idea who I am, but I have to tell you that this is the single-most hilarious thing I have ever read in my entire life. I really didn't like the movie, just because Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler have nothing on Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford, but this was hilarious!

you are my hero

okay...so this was about the most brilliant thing I have ever read...I laughed...I laughed...and I laughed some more...in fact, my throat is sore from the endless amount of chuckles I was just provided with. Thank you "You have truly made my night."

I so would have picked the Phantom. He's hot and he had a bad past and his voice is sexy. What's not to like?

Laughing

The first time i read this i started to leak in the pants, i was laughing so hard. I still laugh everytime i read it, and make all my buddies read after they've seen the movie.

Well done.

Permission?

Hi... when I read this I absolutely went crazy over it XDDDD So I'm wondering if I could make a flash animation out of it, sort of like a cartoon? My friend and I are recording the voices and we just used your script to make it...... I haven't posted it anywhere; I'm first asking for your permission... if it's not alright with you, I totally understand--you'll get full credit for it when posted. Thankies!!

Re: Permission?

Sure, as long as you let me see it when it's done. : ) I also have a few movie still animations in the memories of this comm, and I'm working on recording a reading of it myself.

I doubt you'll get this... but anyways.

Did you notice how before she ever got on the horse, she had NO slutty black eyeshadow on.. and yet when you see her look around on the horse and afterwards.. she does?

"hold on phanny i gotta put on my slutty black eyeshadow before i leave for your batcave"

No, I totally do--several people pointed it out to me, and when I went back and looked at some of the movie stills, they're absolutely right. ; )

You're my hero...

I've been reading these for a while now...this was WONDERFUL!

My mum and I saw this yesterday, and I made her read this...she was absolutely destroyed!

Again, I love you, you're my hero! This was SO funny!

I was almost in TEARS! (As was my mother!)

I'm going to come back to this when I've see the movie - but from what I remember of the musical, it's spot-on. Well done, love!

This was funny enough before I finally saw the film, having just been to the musical once at the age of twelve--but now it is freaking hilarious. I want to have Erik's your BABIEZ, cleolinda.

Like everyone else has said, very well done. I laughed so hard. I love the side comments from the "phans" and all that. You did such a wonderful job.

Try emmy-rossum.net, gerard-butler.net, and phantomphan.net/gallery--those three should cover just about everything you could want. : )
