As requested, my take on Mamma Mia.
Jason and I saw Mamma Mia yesterday. We were giddy with excitement. We made a day of it. We have both seen the play twice and L-O-V-E-D, loved it.
We enjoyed the movie. It was fun. We both agreed that there is something about the play that couldn't be replicated in the film. The performers in the play were amazing and because it was live, the songs were much more powerful. That being said, we liked the movie. I'm sure if we hadn't the play to compare it to, we would have loved the movie.
The actors did a decent job with the songs (some better than others), and those songs are so great. It was corny and fun, and the scenery was breathtaking. We didn't get up and dance like Grandma J did, but I did sing. Overall, it was a good movie.
