Mamma Mia

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.

and

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.

I really wanted to see this with my mum when she was out here, but Plantboy and I went to Dark Knight instead. Now, I may have to wait for the DVD and her next visit. :) Plantboy has said he'd rather be shot in the head. And I do love Colin Firth. I mean, in a totally platonic, admire the god from afar type of love.

We are having a girls night on Friday and watching this! I heard the whole audience was singing along here! I don't know the songs and might have to prep myself!

I have been hesitant to go see this, but now I think I will give it a try! Sounds like it would be a girl's night out! And I love the tent in the above post. Why can't they all feature a nice comfortable bed like that one. Oh and can it come with air conditioning?

I thought I was going to have to see this movie by myself, but finally I found a like-minded soul and we're going to see it this week.

My mother wasn't keen on it when she saw it, but her review had the opposite effect on me. She said, 'unless you really like their songs and that musical type production feel...' That was me sold. :)
