I have never posted a new post for a Friday Matinee movie review before....not even a Friday Matinee on Monday. But Mama Mia! which is better than saying Holy Crap, or thatsa one-a spicy meata ball!
I want to tell you all how wonderful this movie is...but I'm afraid to get carried away! Of course it's about a mother who had too many hormones in her younger days and too many men in one week! But honestly? Mother Theresa's whole legacy could have gone down the tubes if she...well you know what I mean.
Donna (Meryl)and her two BFF are a real hoot. The props and innuendo are hilarious and will have you rolling in the aisles.
I went to an early showing, and it wasn't very full. Of course the new Batman movie opened today too, and some monkey movie which attracted a ton of preschoolers on buses.
The music by ABBA was the bomb!
Now, I'm not exactly an extrovert, but by the end of the movie I couldn't control myself, and I did something that I wanted to do throughout the movie, but was too shy...at first...yep, I started clapping...then others clapped...I got up and danced...and so did most of the other movie goers! We had a real hootenanny going on! But, please, don't let any of my kids know, they would be so embarrassed.
So faithful readers? Let me know if you let go and jump up and dance like Grandma J. I dare you...actually, I don't think it will take much at all.
And oh yeah....the men! hot, hot, hot! Especially my secret heartthrob and my BBFFWTF!
