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)!

I'm sure you will enjoy Mama Mia. I did laugh when Pierce Brosnan sang though LOL ... I won't spoil it for you.

I went to Wellington last weekend and it decided to bucket down with rain so I spent a whole day at the movies watching Mama Mia, Handcock and the new Narnia. I thought Narnia was a bit scary for a kids movie actually LOL

Yeah, I heard that Pierce Brosnan can't, I'm kind of expecting that and hoping he doesn't have to "try" very often.

Sounds like you had a good day at the movies. I did want to see "Narnia", but I think it's out of the theaters will likely rent it when it comes out on DVD soon.
