Wondering why times are missing?

Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera

If you loved the original stage musical, you could probably do worse than this garish, overstuffed film version. If you disliked the original (I, for one, plead guilty), then director Joel (Batman & Robin) Schumacher's Harlequin Romance will only further compound your hatred. Unlike recent film musicals such as Chicago, this one remains hopelessly stagebound and favors audiences with only the vaguest of scripts. 143 minutes PG-13.
