Movie Review – Mamma Mia

I was lucky enough to see Mamma Mia on stage several years ago. While not nearly as exciting as the live production, the movie is lively and colorful, a perfect choice for little sis Amanda and me last Thursday. It was impossible not to sing along with all the familiar Abba tunes.

However, Pierce Brosnan, while pretty to look at, should never sing. Meryl Streep sings okay, but is not pretty to look at.

But the whole movie was worth the effort, and in fact I’d go again, just to see one number: Christine Baranski in, “Does Your Mother Know”. She is simply fabulous.

If you make me laugh, you've made my day!

    I’ve heard lots about this movie, half the people were saying how they couldn’t help but sing…the other half were whinging about the ones who were singing!!
