This last weekend, I took the two girls to see Mama Mia! And it was soo much better than I thought it would be. I cried, I laughed, the stranger lady sitting next to me and I sang together. :) It is a couple weeks into the showings and still the theater was packed.
For those that might not know, the movie is a Broadway show turned into a movie using the ABBA record from 1992 (ABBA Gold).
I first found my love for ABBA in 1994 during Winterguard practice. Our instructor used it for stretches and lines (which is running across the floor and doing sa'shes and split leaps). I ran out and bought the CD and it was memorized that first week. I would play it in the car to wake me up, or just something to get Taylor dancing in the back seat. So as you can guess, Taylor enjoyed the movie too!!
And from what I understand, all of the actors sang the songs themselves and they did an amazing job! The bonus was Pierce Bronson in a sequence jumpsuit!!!! That alone is a reason to see it twice. So if you have yet to see it, and are familiar with the music, take a girlfriend and make a night of it!
