Mama Mia

I have been looking forward to this movie ever since I saw the previews so we decided to brave opening day. The place was so packed we ended up sitting on the third row but it was worth it. It wasn't the expert singing that made it so much fun. No matter how much I like Pierce Brosnan, I have to admit he is not a singer. What made the movie was the memories all the songs brought back and the fact that everyone involved did not seem to take themselves too seriously. It was nice to relax and enjoy the music and the scenery was breathtaking. I sure wouldn't mind visiting Greece one day.

That was a sweet surprise to be asked to join not only my daughter and her husband, but to have the lovely Jenny along for the ride. The movie was great, but "Sam" just ain't no singer. What a hoot!

I sure didn't intend for the surprise to cost you! Glad you were able to get there from work. We will have to do it again.

I also enjoyed the movie, although the play version was better. I thought Meryl Streep was great! You could tell that she took the role seriously, even though the movie was basically fluff. I read that she was a big fan of the original Broadway production.
