Sylvie posted a comment about going to see Mama Mia at the cinema on my last post and said she thought of me when she watched it. How fabulous :-)
I have not been fortunate to see the stage performance, although my Mum did when she was working in London some years ago and she said it was brilliant.
When I was in Spain I went to see the film. I was hesitant as I thought it would have been dubbed into Spanish but was assured it would be in English with sub-titles in Spanish. (apparently the stage show was translated into Spanish .. songs and all, but it just didn't work out so well!)
So off I went after tapas and beer to a Spanish cinema with 2 Brits and a Columbian... do you know they sell beer at the cinema over there.... how civilised is that!
The film was fabulous. Such a feel good film. I would recommend you all to see it. It was cheesey and fun, it had me crying and belly laughing at the same time. Julie Walters (who I love) was exceptional as was Meryl Streep .. superb! and as for Colin Firth (swoon) .. you just have to get over Pierce Brosnon singing though lol
mmmm Dancing Queen has a certain memory jog for me ;-)
The best bit was me and my fellow Brits were singing along with the songs through out the film (I hasten to add no one else was singing, in the UK they are up and dancing during it).. at the end as the titles rolled there were more songs and we sang along to them too ............ the lights went on and we got got a round of applause from the handful of remaining cinema viewers.............. it was simply marvelous
I am so going to buy the DVD when it is released
Get your toes tapping....................
