I BEG to differ with the Record film critic's assessment of Gerard Butler's role in Phantom of the Opera as a failure.

While it met with mixed critical reviews, I can assure readers it is still appearing with great regularity and enjoying repeated viewing in the US by loyal fans of Gerard as well as Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. In the minds of many filmgoers, this role was indeed a break that gave Gerard a chance to show both the movie industry and movie fans the breadth and scope of his talents as an actor and entertainer - and not the failure you tagged it as.
