My daughter who is 13 and I seen it...fabulous!! I have a copy of the soundtrack that we listen to all the time too. I had just read the book not too long ago so I was dying to see it. Really did it justice.

I saw it during the holidays and LOVED it! I'm driving the kids crazy with my rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" LOL!

I'm very excited to see it with my mother and sister. My mother took each of us to see the production when we were children, and we grew up listening to the soundtrack. I know nearly every word. I was listening to the original broadway soundtrack the other day and cried several times.
In the movie the actors sang their parts live, which is different than other musicals where they record in a studio and dub it over. That's what I've always hated about movie version of musicals, its so staged.

Exactly! It makes a big difference done this way! I read somewhere Anne Hathaway has been nominated for some sort of award for her role as Fantine and it is well deserved!
