Mama Mia - in review

If you are reading this and you are my most favorite buddy in the world and your name is Wayne... I would just like to say how much I enjoyed getting out on Sunday (legs sore as crap from helping another friend move) to go see Mama Mia with you. You know I very much enjoy your company and friendship. I also want you to know that Mama Mia - The Movie was an awesome spectacle and thoroughly worth the free tickets used to get in. The cool environment was relaxing. And I can't stress enough how much I enjoyed my time out. Now Wayne..., you can stop reading.
To all other readers: Please save your money. This movie down right sucked. If you must watch it, please wait for it to come out on DVD and let someone else buy it and you borrow it. I've seen the stage show twice and enjoyed that both times. No, I don't need to see that another time either. The movie ruined that for me, that is for certain. There are two people on this earth that most definitely should never sing and NOT on film; they are Meryl Streep and the hunkalicious Pierce Brosnan. Meryl's was a passable voice. But Pierce, baby, no. NO - NO - NO, not ever again, ever. Take your shirt off as much as you want, but never sing again.
And don't be silly, of course I still love Abba!

I can't argue with your review, but sometimes sucky moves are fun to watch. I went with freinds last night and saw this, and I have to say we genuinely had fun watching it. Yeah, pierce and meryl need to stick to non singing roles, but, hey, they looked like they were having fun. I hate mud and dirt, but sometimes it's fun to play in it. Sorry it was such a painful experience, but I still say if you can lower your expectations and enjoy a bad romp through some loosely strung together abba tunes, you can have a good time watching this. The gay "twist" was fun, eh?

Of COURSE it was bad! That's what made it so...great. We ruined the experience for everyone else in the theater by singing along and giggling in stupefied mesmeric glee throughout the whole thing.

I am going to see the stage show in Sept. I saw it a couple of years ago and loved it. The movie seemed fun but I haven't been to see it yet so I guess I will take your advice and wait for the DVD.

this is one of the only plays i've ever seen, which ended up being great... it's funny to think of ol' Pierce taking a stab at singing, yeeesh

I saw the play at Landmark this past winter and enjoyed it, but I can't even imagine it on the big screen. I don't think I'd have been interested, but thanks for saving me from any unresolved qualms! :o)
