Mamma Mia!

mamma mia! movieI think Mamma Mia was an awesome musical. Meryl Streep was an even more awesome actress who really gave life to the whole movie. Plus if you grew up listening to ABBA's songs, you'd find yourself singing with the cast when the songs came up.

The story is fairly simple. A girl who is about to get married invites three men who all had a relationship with her mother. The catch is that one of them might be her father. Yeah, that's basically the whole story. Simple, no?

The songs and the actors' voices make the simple story a fun watch though. Their expressions and body movements when they sing makes the songs look as if it were mere exchanges between the actors. Kinda like their usual dialogues.

The dance routines are kinda funny for me, though. I mean, I never really thought that people would dance that way. It's entertaining and quite funny.

I don't think I have that much to say about Mamma Mia. I mean, to be honest, I felt really sleepy during some parts where the drama was happening. I couldn't even comment on most of the actors' acting, except that they all had nice voices. Why? Because Meryl Streep really stood out and I think she made the movie enjoyable. Well Pierce Brosnan was cool too, didn't even know he could sing at all.

Bottomline is, watch Mamma Mia!
