|My wife loves 1776 and watches it every Fourth of July. The kids and I roll our eyes because the singing is so corny. She didn't know it was on TCM and was the Director's Cut but I told her about it. She offered to go upstaris and watch it alone but we told her to stay as I was reading the latest North and South and the kids didn't have anything they wanted to watch. As it began with that "Sit Down John!" song my oldest boy looked at me and we both gave a silent laugh to each other. She saw it and said, "I told you I would watch it upstairs" and stormed out of the room. The kids continued to watch anyway and thought it was pretty good when they didn't sing. At one point my son annnounced, "They actually went 25 minutes without singing." At 11:30 I went to bed and my wife was still watching, normally when I come to bed the TV goes off but she either likes it a lot or took it out on me for snickering as she watched it until it ended at midnight. Maybe it was a little of both.
