Mamma Mia!

Late home tonight as it was movies night.

I went to see Mamma Mia with my parents, first time they have been to the cinema for about 25 years, since a rainy week long holiday in Cornwall forced them into a local cinema to dry off and warm up. My sister and brother in law came to.

The film was excellent in a very musical, tongue in cheek kind of way. It was based on a Greek comedy, complete with Greek chorus. My dad was even seen singing along. The desire to sing along, even as a non ABBA fan, was irresistable. The audiende clapped at the end of each song, and hey pretty much got a standing ovation at the end of the movie.

Great fun, go see it. Even if you dont like ABBA, just go see it NOW, and I bet you dont come out of there without a smile!


  1. 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

  2. I have to tell you he was an awful singer, but strangely it added to the film rather than detracted. When he started singing the whole Greek chorus had a little laugh.

    I had a strange power for sure, I dont even like musicals and I am hooked!
