A little bird told me that my GF wants to take me to see Les Mis.

now, with the exception of Repo: the Genetic Opera, Sweeny Todd, Phantom of the Opera, Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog, and that episode of Buffy, I hate musicals.

Should I run and hide/come up with an excuse not to go, or is it something I can sit through without secretly putting in ear plugs or leaving for the bathroom and not coming back?

No, I said "with the exception of...I hate musicals", meaning I didn't hate the ones I listed. I enjoyed Repo and Sweeny Todd, and 2 is hardly "a lot of musicals".

You didn't list 2 musicals, you listed five.

yeah, 5 is a lot. Maybe you should watch some more musicals and have fun. You'd probably really enjoy yourself.

Oops, my bad, that's my scenario.

If those are the only musicals you enjoy, I doubt you'll like it. With regards to whether or not you're able to sit through it, what musicals you have seen, did not enjoy, and how tolerable they were would be more helpful information than those you did enjoy.

Do you have friends? Does she have friends?

How about telling her that you are simply not interested.

Are you two conjoined twins?

How about you go see Zero Dark Thirty and she goes to see Les Mis.

I generally hate musicals as a rule. Out of the ones you listed, I only like Dr. Horrible, and I don't know if that really counts.

That being said, I absolutely love Les Miserables. It's by far the best musical ever written, imo, and the movie is spectacular (though not as good as the staged version). Musicals are usually about romance and crap (and Les Mis does have some of that), but the themes are much deeper and much more moving than the usual happy-go-lucky stuff that makes guys like us want to shoot themselves. But keep in mind that the movie is pretty much all sung.

So yeah, I would definitely see it. It made me cry, and I don't cry during movies. Good movie, great date movie. I don't think you'll just "sit through it"... I think you will genuinely enjoy it.

Oh yeah... I also like Spamalot lol
