Movie: Mamma Mia!
Like/Don't Like: Abba and Colin Firth. What's not to like?
I love Abba. Their songs make me wish that I had a polyester jumpsuit studded in rhinestones that I could dance around in. A million imaginary points to the first person who knows which Abba song is my ringtone?
This movie has LOADS of Abba songs. I know that you're say, "Duh, Rachel. It's Mamma Mia." But I was truly surprised that about 90% of the movie was filled with songs. And on the DVD it has a sing-along feature and if there's anything I love more than Abba, it's a sing-along. The singing was alright. The acting was over the top. The location was Greece so it was pretty to look at. But none of that really matters because there was Colin Firth and Abba. It could have been Colin Firth singing Abba in a trash can and I would have been happy.
