It's been awhile since I've been so entertained from movies. The last I checked, it was The Dark Knight. Mamma Mia! The Movie definitely blew a lot of audience off their feets. I can swear that there were people dancing in the screening hall when Nuffnang had a Premiere Screening for the movie courtesy of Universal International Pictures. They even gave out very nicely printed tickets to the screening in KL!
That was me and the notorious molester in Nuffnang, Pinky. I know that I've gained weight lately. T_T I'm going to skip a lot of meals starting today and workout more in the gym. Don't you even dare to ask me out for unhealthy meals! No more Carl's Junior and Yellow Cab please! I wanna be fit again! Grrrr!!
Back to the movie, it was set to 1999 on the enchanting Greek island of Kalokairi where people are still not as complicated as the city peeps and they dance for rain and make human sacrifices to Satan. Okay, that was plain lame crap from me. But the island is no doubt very beautiful.
I know I'm such an idiot to start a movie review by showing you an island that looks like a rock from far. But hey, go catch the movie on your own and you'll find out what it means by The Winner Takes It All.
Lame. Very very lame for me to take the opportunity to insert a song to what I'm trying to say. I was merely trying to imitate the movie. :( It seems like every single new happening on the plot is so perfect for another ABBA song.
I collected them after the show ended to make this. :D
Well I'll give you a gist of the storyline of the movie.
Meryl Streep plays Donna, a single mother who had fun/love with 3 men within a period of time quite some time ago. All the three men moved on and years later, Donna's daughter, Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) who had no idea who her dad was is going to get married to a very very hot guy - Sky (Dominic Cooper). Thus, she wants to find out who her real dad is and invited all the three men to the island for her wedding.
So the story goes on how everyone discover love in a different perspective. Overall, it's a family show and I bet your parents are going to enjoy it as much as you will. Among the things that you can look out for and giggle are;
1. How painful is it for us to realize that time is so envious of beauty
Basically you can see that most of the main characters are saggy (both male and female) and the wrinkles are pretty obvious. Not to mention how unattractive the Ex-Bond had become. UGHHH!!
2. Meryl Streep is great
She was the bomb. I mean, if it ain't without her, I really doubt it will be this good. She had total control and her acting and performance was no doubt splendid.
3. Julie Walters as Rosie rocks!
Mrs Weasleys (Harry Potter series) is totally out of control in the movie. She's fun and hilarious along Christine Baranski (Tanya). I especially enjoyed her performance near the end of the movie, "Take A Chance On Me".
4. Bollywood Hollywood
Yes. It's a little Bollywood in Mamma Mia. I mean, people from the streets join in to the singing and dancing actually. XD
5. Dominic Cooper is freaking HOT!!!
Yes he is. He's not too muscular but just the right amount of lean. Yummy! It was such a painful sight to see him next to Amanda Seyfried.
Well, I still remember her dumbness in Mean Girls. That impression can't seem to go away. :( Sorry Amanda.
Here's another picture of Cooper for you peeps to look at.
Even at the end of the movie, the audience was showered with lots of ABBA music. I personally think that's very thoughtful of the producers because we were expecting it. :D
After all the extra songs ended during Nuffnang Premiere Screening, the bloggers all clapped to show how much they appreciate the show. Awww`~~
For those of you who have not catch the movie, I'll spoil it for you a little with the picture below of the 3 possible fathers of Sophie. Enjoy.
Dances, but never a queen
