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 )

Fell off my chair

I found the link to this on the EtiquetteHell forum. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at a movie synopsis in my life. Thusly, I had to pass it long to my friends via a link in my LJ.

I'm off to read more M15m's.

This was AWESOME!

Thank you so much for posting this, I loved it. I also thought it was brilliant that you put your copyright info in between the lines in white text. My favorite line: "FIRMIN: No panicking and no refunds! What, are you going to let a little murder get in the way of your high culture? SIT BACK DOWN!"

Utter genius! You rock!

holy crap!
~picks self off floor, and wipes up drool of laughter~

you've managed to distill it down perfectly, m'dear. you've captured every weird thought i had whilst watching the film, and have added a few more to the list (Dread Pirate Roberts? you so rule!!!).

sunburn of doom, indeed. ~snickers~

thanks so much, from a true Phreak, for your hard work and devotion to detail :-D

I saw it yesterday, after reading this, and managed not to laugh for most of it... until the Dread Pirate Roberts Corps de Ballet. Even then I managed to hold it in for one or two moments. But then when they started doing ninja poses I exploded.

Good thing there was only about seven people in the theater.

(When the female counterparts of the Dread Pirate Robertses come on stage, it becomes clear from their costuming that the ninja poses were intended to be something between tango and flamenco, but... Sorry. You are right. They totally frugged.)

I just spit diet dr. pepper all over my keyboard. Way to go.

"He's slightly unattractive on one side! To arms!"

He was a bit too attractive for a hideously deformed monster. Not that I'm complaining or anything. ^_^

Freakin awesome! Phanotom's one of my favorite movies and this just made it even better. But man, I can never watch it with a straight face again.
slayervampbitca From: slayervampbitca Date: February 18th, 2005 07:05 am (UTC) (Link)
Um, I totally meant Phantom, not Phanotom. Oops.

Tis Kris

Cleolinda, you have inspired me and my drama class to acutally PERFORM this for comedy night at our high school. Seriously. No joke. We're really going to do it.

Just thought you'd like to know. Now you can call yourself an actual playwright! Yay for you!

-Kris

Re: Tis Kris

I swear, y'all are like the fifth group to do this. :D Could you possibly send me a program or something? A video, if possible? It can be crappy.

Cleolinda, I bow to your genus!!!

How DO you do it?

Keep on going!! You could have us peeing our pants for eternity!!

touched by an angel--a lot

Omg. This is the funniest parody-thing ever. I first read this two days ago, then again yesterday. THIS IS SOOOOO FUNNY. I laughed so hard it hurt. Still hurts. *Hahaha*
The movie totally got on my nerves--I want to pinch Emmy Rossum just to see if she has an expression that isn't "Oooo, Ahhhh, look-at-my-beautifulness-and-be-amazed". Which could be better said: *Omg I have boobs*.
I did nose around some and did I hear BOOK??!! somewhere? Is there really going to be a whole BOOK of these hysterical things? Where? When? Can I have one? Yesterday?
P.S. Cleolinda--my firstborn is in the mail.

*hysteria*

I salute you. I believe my laughter may have awoken the neighbours, though...

The HP POA one was good, but this was fabulous. Seriously.
