Mama Mia

I had the pleasure of seeing Mama Mia with my mother, aunt, and uncle which really added to the enjoyment of this rather silly movie. Besides the good company, the movie is worth watching to see Meryl Streep belt out Abba tunes and to marvel at the incredible Greek island where the movie is filmed. As a side note, the young groom in the film was the Willoughby in the recent PBS Sense and Sensibility. Gosh, there does always seem to be a Jane Austen connection.

I really want to see this! I'm glad you thought it was cute. I saw the play in London in high school and enjoyed the storyline.
Did you know the director is also the director of the musical for the London and Broadway shows?

I did not know this. Interesting. I liked it but it is pretty slight -- I forgot that I really don't like musicals all that well also.
