Movie Review (Sort of): Mama Mia

Friday I went to see Mama Mia with a friend. Overall, it was a fun movie. Yes, it was sappy, cheesy at times and unrealistic, but after all it is a musical.  Mama Mia is based on the music of Abba and features Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan. Streep’s performance was good and she can sing. Brosnan is not known for his singing and that is  evident in the movie. However, he does a decent job and has obviously worked very hard preparing for the role.  The movie was predictable at  times.  Overall, it was a fun 90 minutes except for the people next to me who kept talking. They were old enough to know better but I guess forgot they were not in their living rooms and others were more interested in the movie than side conversations.

Oh, if you are looking for a real review head over to Rotten Tomatoes. It is a good movie for date night or if you are looking for something fun.


  1. Thank you for the review. Sometimes, I just need a little cheesy, sappy movie to chill out with! Life is complicated, and I like to escape. You are the second person who has recommended the movie! I will DEFINITELY see it!
