Weekend Wrapup #6: Mamma Mia!


February 28th, a friend of mine and I watched Mamma Mia. Talk about torture. I know several people who liked it, but I'm not one of them. It had vulgar moments that didn't have to be there, terrible singing (why can't Pierce Brosnan just go back to being Remington Steele?), and random songs that didn't even relate to what was going on. I did not like it.

I have to agree...that was the dumbest movie ever! We took it with us camping one weekend....it was terrible! Glad I just wasted a few dollars renting it instead of seeing it at the theater!!

I felt EXACTLY the same way about the movie!!! It's a MUSICAL after all -- how about casting people who might have a pleasing voice?! ha! I saw the Broadway musical of Mama Mia, and it was awesome (although had moments of unnecessary vulgarity too....) Happy Monday, friend!!!

I liked the movie okay but didn't think it was as great as everybody else did. I am a big Abba fan, though!

Kailani, I agree-I'm a huge Abba fan! I think that made the movie even more disappointing. Sharon, the movie made me never want to see the musical, so I'm glad you told me that it's good.

Sorry..... I loved it!!!

I felt the same way. I actually couldn't watch the movie in one sitting (I'm still not sure why I tortured myself for the second half). I kept feeling as though maybe I was missing something (after hearing so many of my friends say how much they enjoyed the movie). Nope.

That's so funny. My sister and I were just talking about this. It's why I've never attempted the movie, even though I love all the people in it. Pierce Brosnan and his wife sat behind me at a show once and yes he is even cuter in person!

Haven't seen this particular movie. But are you aware that Remington Steele was on Hulu? OH YEAH!!!
