Here I go again....
I'm really looking forward to this movie opening this weekend.
I saw the play a few years ago and had such a good time. The way they used the ABBA music within the story is a lot of fun and you can't help leaving the theater humming many of the familiar tunes.
Besides Meryl Streep (who is always good and can actually sing), the movie also has a couple other of my favorite actresses....Christine Baranski and Julie Walters.
I know it's opening the same weekend as "Batman", so its box office will certainly pale in comparrison.
But, I think the movies are geared towards completely different audiences. So, let's hope that women drag their husbands/boyfriends to see "Mama Mia" after they've sat through "Batman".
If the movie is anywhere near as good as the play, it should be a fun night out!
Update: Seems that "Mama Mia" opened in the number one spot at the UK box office last weekend.
Take THAT "Hancock" (which I also enjoyed)!
