just ignore this mom...

we watched Oliver! the other night. can i just say that they must have been hurting for good movies the year this won the oscar? i liked the music from this show, until i saw it. the whole thing was just kinda flat/deadpan. i kept waiting for oliver to bust out during a song, but he just used the same boring tone the whole time. nancy was better, however, after hearing "as long as he needs me" in context, i don't like it so much anymore.

this also missed the "depressing 60's/70's musical" category. nobody we cared about died. (well, okay, nancy, maybe, i think i saw her twitch after being beat up) evil guy died(pfeh) to qualify, oliver would have to end up destitute, or dead. oh well.
