My mother, 2 of my sisters, and I went to see Mamma Mia over the weekend and can I just say that I loved it. After each song I had the greatest urge to start clapping but I restrained myself the one exception was the Pierce Brosnan's singing debut during which the entire audience started to laugh--I felt bad for him but really I think he should stick to his none-singing roles. It was a little crude in places (but having just gotten back from a Shakespeare festival it didn't seem at all crude to me--also judging by their laughter, the little old ladies sitting in front didn't think it was crude either). Here are a few things that I have decided since seeing the movie:
1. If I ever get married I want a hen party (female version of the bachelor's party) where we will sing and dance to Dancing Queen.
2. If I ever get married I really, really, really, want to go to Greece on my honeymoon--so, so, so very beautiful. The movie is worth watching if only for the beautiful scenery.
For those Mr. Darcy fans out there if you look close you can see Mr. Darcy in a dripping wet white shirt again--never mind who he is dancing with.
