Why did this become the year when it became okay to like crappy musical theater? Is "On My Own" a great song if you're a teenage girl? Yes. Is Les Mis/z a real touchstone for those of us who grew up in the tri-state area and took French and went to see it on various class trips? Sure. But is there any real excuse for so many adults to willingly subject themselves to a 3+ hour long movie that involves several instances of Russell Crowe singing? I can't imagine that there is.
