Mamma Mia

I went to see Mamma Mia last night with two of my friends from our small group. They had seen the musical at the Fox Theater and had talked so much about it that we all decided to go see the movie together. All in all, I thought it was a really great movie, but there were a couple of things that will probably haunt me for the rest of my life...
  • Pierce Brosnan singing. Yes, everything you have heard is true - he should stick with the Bond movies and stay away from the microphone.
  • Colin Firth (who is one of my favorite actors) playing a role that made me NOT want to watch him!
  • A little ABBA goes a LOOONNNNGG way! I'll probably be singing Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! for the next 3 days!!
  • And finally, the image that has been burned into my brain is...Meryl Streep singing "Dancing Queen" with 100 Greek women behind her while playing AIR GUITAR!!!!! Horrible!!!!!

If you've seen the movie, what did you think???

Haven't seen it...nor will I. I prefer to keep the image of Pierce Brosnan as James Bond and not a singer/dancer.

I haven't seen it and don't want to after hearing the reviews. Maybe when it's on TV.
As for Pierce Brosnan, he has no choice; he's not hired for any more Bond films. Poor guy is just trying to earn a living. I sure hope he finds the vehicle.

I thought it was a breath of fresh air after all the other movies that have come out recently. I agree with Pierce piercing my ears, I believe I felt a drop of blood come out after his little diddy. haha. Other than that.. I laughed hard the entire time. :)
