Mama Mia--The movie!

Post by Nena » Thu Aug 28, 2008 5:45 pm

I just went to see this movie and I LOVED it. I have always liked Abba's music. Growing up my mom used to play their music and I learned a lot of the lyrics.
I have been waiting for the musical to come again to my city, but the movie will do for now.
Ok, you all Mama mia! lovers, post away!

Mama Mia was great! I had the chance to see it in Port Angeles (yes the same one mentioned in Twilight) with my some of my most bestest buds. I honestly don't think the movie would've been nearly as fun had I not been watching it with them.

The songs were great! I'm kind of music-illiterate when it comes to anything other than movie scores and alternative, so I had no idea that the music was by ABBA until one of my friends told me. I knew I had heard the songs before, I just didn't know who they were by. :roll: :lol:

I must say that I'll never look at James Bond or Mr. Darcy the same way again, though. :lol:

This was one of the best musical movies i have seen in a while (i loved hairspray), it was such a cute love story and you can go in and sing-a-long cos you already know the songs! it was great
Highly recommended

Sing-A-Long Edition here I come!
Is anybody else worried that Mr. Dary is now ruined because of Harry in a purple jumpsuit? Ha Ha.

This movie was fantastic. I'd recommend it to anyone. And oh yes taking fifteen of your girlfriends with you is a MUST. You just won't laugh as much without all the extra help.

And Pierce Bronson's singing .... let's just say it adds to the charm of the movie. It may be bad but that's probably why it's so funny.
It's all about expectations baby

I was so excited to see this movie, but I personally thought it was TERRIBLE. I mean seriously... Pierce Brosnan singing was almost enough to make me gouge out my eyeballs. I like Abba, but I think the actors needed some serious singing lessons.
