Worst Pies in London!

I'm on record saying that Helena Bonham Carter ruined the movie version of Sweeny Todd with her awful singing. I hate to keep harping on Helena who is almost always a delight in interviews and seems to have a good perspective on celebrity. But casting actors who can't sing in movie musicals is a pet peeve of mine. She's in the new Les Miserables hence this post.

To prove my point I give you evidence:

Angela Lansbury

Patti LuPone

Julia McKenzie (starts at 3:45)

and finally Helena

Who sang it best?

  • Julia McKenzie
  • Angela Lansbury
  • Patti Lu Pone
  • Helena Bonham Carter?
