Re: "King's Speech" director to take on "Les Miserables"
One weird moment for me was the medley on the eve of the uprising. As this was going on, I was suddenly (and strongly) reminded of the medley on the eve of the war from South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
. That kind of spoiled the drama for me.
That medley is a direct parody of Les Miserables
' "One Day More" (as is the Gregory character, a parody of Marius and Enjolras), so that's not surprising.
