I Finally Got Away
Friday, my friend, Julie, and I saw Mamma Mia! May I say that I, who’s not a huge fan of musicals, absolutely adored the movie. Julie wasn’t too sure that she’d wanted to see it, but saw it because I wanted to, and because Sex and the City wasn’t available. She paid for the tickets ($14) and I paid for the popcorn and sodas ($15.52). Worth every single penny paid, I think. Definitely one where I’ll be purchasing the DVD when it comes out, and the soundtrack as well. As I told Julie, I want it in my car, on my laptop, and on my phone.
I absolutely loved the screen adaptation of Mamma Mia! The look of it was gorgeous, never has a Greek island looked so beautiful! I loved Meryl Streep as Donna, she cam across as an honest and good-hearted character. I loved Amanda ans Sophie and my only big casting problem was Pierce Brosnan, you may want to cover your ears when he sings, he’s horrible. Some of the songs seemed a bit forced in the storyline, but some of them felt at home. I saw an advanced screening and the sound wasn’t very good but that could have been because of the spot where we were sitting. The movie was ultimate feel good! I loved it! It was very bright and bouncy the whole time. I didn’t feel that there was one slow moment in the movie! I think my favorite moment in the movie was definitely Dancing Queen. It was spectacular.

I’d have to say that I agree 100% with this review, and all of the spectacular ones. There might be some not so nice ones, but I haven’t paid any attention.
