This might be old news to some of you, but I never knew that Gerard Butler was in the movie adaptation of The Phantom of The Opera. I watched it for the first time yesterday, having rented it from the library along with Grease and The Young Victoria. Does that seem like an odd mix? If you’re interested, I was also trying to rent Funny Face, but it was nowhere to be found.
In any case, the movie was good, but I am a fan of Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals in general, my favourites being The Phantom of The Opera, Joseph and The Technicolour Dreamcoat, and Jesus Christ Superstar. I choose to overlook Cats. I was really just surprised that Gerard Butler was in it. I actually couldn’t get over it. I just wonder how a man who was in The Ugly Truth and P.S. I Love You also played the lead role in a opera musical. Does this seem odd to no one else?
