If You Haven’t Seen This Yet… Les Miserables Family Reaction – Your Friday Funny!

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!

    C’mon and jump off the cliff. I was blubbering like a baby in front of my family. If you can’t get through the trailer without welling up (which I can’t either) you are certainly doomed when the end of the movie comes around. Kind of strange. It was one of the more visceral reactions I’ve had to a movie and I knew what to expect. Then again almost any film that I have an emotional connection with does that to me. Hell I cried at the film ‘Once’ for goodness sake.

    How could you not cry at Once? I started crying during the scene where he taught her the song in the music shop & hardly stopped until the end of the movie. I was a wreck for 3 days.

    I’m 2/3’s of the way through the book (Les Miserables) right now. Hope to finish this coming week so I can go make an idiot of myself.
