Luckily, I was able to follow along with the story, as tze bebe was very helpful in pointing out which characters were which. Also, she would occasionally sing along with it. Terribly cute.
[As for the movie itself, it was, uh, yeah. Joel Schumacher, if you're reading this, you need to give up directing, and just become a full-time art director and producer. Seriously. Let someone else do the hard work, and concentrate on making things look nice.]
[Also, has anyone read the original novel? If so, was it worth reading?]
[Ooh, and the guy who played the Phantom will be King Leonidas in the movie version of 300.]
