If you haven’t watched this yet, you have to see it. The family just went to see Les Miserables and one of the sons recorded his parent’s reaction to the film in the car after the show. My favorite part is at 0:47 when the dad starts laughing and crying at the same time. “We’ve been to funerals and have been less upset. We’ve been to funerals of family members and have cried less.” …so funny.
I have said all along that I’m going to have to see this film alone. I can’t get through the trailer without crying. Grown men sobbing uncontrollably is such and unsightly thing. I don’t know if my loved ones could handle my reaction to the film, but thank God nobody will record it and put it on Youtube!
In all seriousness, this video shows a couple of things that I admire. 1) A family having fun with each other – it’s one of my favorite things in the world to see. 2) A family who doesn’t take themselves so seriously that they can’t laugh at themselves. I want to be friends with these people!
