* ValuesDissonance: In a marked departure from the norm, Enjolras is the BigBad (and played by veteran horror film actor Creator/JohnCarradine) in the 1935 version. The film was made during the First Red Scare, and thus a positively portrayed revolutionary would've been abhorrent to the public at the time.

Added DiffLines:

** In the German production, Uwe Kröger and Martin Pasching - Javert and Enjolras, respectively - previously played Death and Crown Prince Rudolf in Theatre/{{Elisabeth}}. They lampshaded it by dueting "Die Schatten werden länger", the ''Elisabeth'' song which their characters share... making it canon that Enjolras, [[spoiler: the character whose corpse is shown most prominently in the show]] dances with Death.

Added DiffLines:

** Somehow, the Thenardiers being AdaptationalComicRelief makes them even more abhorrent than their book counterparts--they cackle like lunatics over their rotten deeds and clearly don't show a shred of remorse nor a shred of empathy. Not even Madam can be bothered to care about her daughter's death.

Added DiffLines:

** From "Attack on Rue Plumet", we have this when Eponine foils Thenardier's attempt at robbing Valjean by screaming and alerting everyone present to their location:
-->'''Thenardier:''' You wait my girl, you'll rue this night! I'll make you scream, ''[[AbusiveParents YOU'LL SCREAM ALRIGHT!]]''

* {{Narm}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMcgcgvF2c4 Javert's death scene]] in the 1978 film version. It's supposed to be depressing like all the scenes portrayed in most adaptations. But instead, he flipped over a few times before he hits the water, accompanied by a dramatic saxophone note.

* VindicatedByHistory: Critical reception when it first came out was mostly negative. Today, it's often considered to be one of the greatest novels ever written.

* VindicatedByHistory: Critical reception when it first came out was mostly negative. Today, negative, with reviewers finding it [[ArcFatigue too long]], [[WriterOnBoard too preachy]], and [[ValuesDissonance too sympathetic to those smelly poor people]]. To say its reputation has improved is an understatement: it's often considered to be lauded as one of the greatest novels ever written.written, is the national prose epic of France, and has spawned mores adaptations than almost any other work of fiction.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Enjolras' sexual orientation has been the topic of heated debate, bringing in issues of both shipping and homoerotic context.

* TheScrappy: Finding musical-only fans who actually ''like'' Cosette is difficult due to most of her characterization from the book being cut as a result of [[CompressedAdaptation the musical's timeline compressing or cutting most of her scenes]]. Creator/AmandaSeyfried's [[Film/LesMiserables2012 portrayal of Cosette]] has a lot more personality and has significantly reduced fan dislike.
