I watched Mamma Mia! last night. Surprisingly, it was very good! I enjoyed myself tremendously, serenanded by the tunes of ABBA and the superb performance by the A-list cast (Merryl Streep, Julia Walters, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth, among others).
At first, I didn’t think it was going to be entertaining. You know, musicals… boring… But this one is different. I stayed up until 2am to finish it. Maybe because I was familiar with ABBA songs, that’s why I enjoyed it so much. I don’t know…
But whatever it is, I love it for it’s a story of mother and daughter, about girlfriends, about love, about old flames, about happy times, about letting go, and good music. It’s like, how we used to do crazy things when we were younger and our children don’t know about it? And when they found out, they're just amazed at what we're capable of doing. It’s like that...
(Well I’m not a movie critic, so I don’t know how to do a film review. This is as good as it gets.)
Shot on a Greek Island, the film is produced by Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Benny Anderson (of ABBA). All the more reason to watch it, right? So, if you’re looking for a light entertainment or something to make you smile, go and get this DVD. It’s worth staying up for!
