Oh Mamma Can Sing and Dance!!!
Yesterday I had a chance to watch Mamma Mia. Its gonna be one of the best Musical Movie I’ve ever watched after Phantom of the Opera. I would better than Phantom of the Opera. I’m saying as a fan of ABBA, as I grew up with the musics, thanks to my dad.
Mamma Mia has got to be the right title for the movie. It is the all time best single hits ever sold by ABBA and its the song that some would say, saved them from extinction. Maybe I’m wrong.
Meryl Streep is Donna Sheridan can Sing and Dance!!! I mean, of course she can…
What a total opposite from her act in Devil’s Wear Prada.
I seriously think her voice replicates the ones of Agnetha and Frida.
Its like you can see the fun and craziness in her in the movie.
What not with the two crazy single loving friends, Rosie (Julie Walters) and Tanya (Christine Baranski) who are part of their so called group Dynamo! -_-
The movie is about Sophie Sheridan (Amanda Seyfried) who is going to get married and she wanted to know who is her father. She invited Sam Carmichael (Pierce Brosnan), Harry Bright (Colin Firth) and Bill Anderson (Stellan Skarsgard) over to her wedding without her mom, Donna’s notice.
Now, spot the ABBA in this picture taken during Mamma Mia reception in Sweden.
Talking about spotting ABBA, did you know that ABBA did appear in the movie on a cameo??? I only recognize Benny, in the part where Donna started dancing to the song of Dancing Queen and they pass this guy playing on the piano. That’s Benny Andersson and Wikipedia reconfirmed my earlier assumption during the movie.
Watch this Featurette..
My summary for this movie is
“It’s so good that I wanted to stand and dance and sing along, but thinking that I will make a mockery out of myself, I sat quietly and enjoyed the show”
What’s your best song from the movie??
The one song I am hooked particularly.. Super Trouper!
Thanks Nuffnang for the tickets!! Finally I can bring Ah Beng out!! -__-

After acquiring tickets to watch The Elephant and The Sea from my previous post, I decided that I should go and catch the film at Cineleisure.
Monday traffic was crazy and with all the crazy jam around me, I manage to get to the cinema just in time for the start of the film. Phew! I
