GIMME! GIMME! GIMME!

MAMMA MIA! THE MOVIE (2008)
– 3 out of 5 stars  

“You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life…
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen…”

I saw Mamma Mia!! A feel-good movie though I must say, I didn’t feel comfortable when they first started singing Abba’s songs in the first 30 minutes of the movie. I couldn’t really link them up with the story but after a few songs, you roughly get the hang of it. The male cast singing sounded a little odd to me; since you don’t normally hear Pierce Brosnan (former Bond 007 agent), Colin Firth (Mr. Darcy) and Stellan Skarsgard (William ‘Bootstrap Bill’ Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean) singing Abba tunes. The photos of the cast in their younger days were hilarious, as is the ‘head banger’ term associated with Colin Firth. My favourite parts were when there was this ‘procession’ of womenfolk singing and dancing along to Dancing Queen, and the ‘mini-concert’ the cast had after the movie ended. OMG, they were all in spandex.
