Sorry but where have all your critical faculties gone?

Having avoided seeing the movie in the cinema, but buying the DVD for my wife for Xmas, I had to watch it. I did not expect much, which usually means I get more than I bargained for. But 'Mamma Mia' - utter, utter cr**. I like ABBA, I like the songs, I have the old LPs. But this film is just terrible. The stage show looks like a bit of a musical, but this races along with songs hurriedly following one another, no characterisation, the dance numbers (which were heavily choreographed according to the extras on the DVD) are just thrown away with only half the bodies ever on screen, the dance chorus of north Europeans appear on a small Greek island at will, while the set and set up of numbers would have disgraced Cliff Richard's musicals in the sixties!Meryl (see me I'm acting)Streep can't even make her usual mugging effective in an over-the-top musical! Her grand piece - 'The Winner Takes It All' - is Meryl at the Met! Note to director - it should have been shot in stillness with the camera gradually showing distance growing between Streep and Brosnan! Some of the singing is awful karaoke on amateur night. The camera cannot stop moving like bad MTV. One can never settle down and just enjoy the music, enthusiasm and characters. But what is even worse is how this botched piece of excre**** has become the highest grossing film in the UK and the best selling DVD to boot? Blair, Campbell and New Labour really have reduced the UK to zombies - critical faculties anyone???

How Can I Resist You?

It's really weird how the inner-workings of my brain function. Sometimes I'll be completely turned off by cheesy musicals (or cheesy films in general). Other times, I get a real joy out of watching something cheesy with earnest and intended heartfelt emotion. It's a case by case basis and depends on my mood I guess. 'Mamma Mia!' falls somewhere in between. The musical based off the broadway play, which is in turn based off music from ABBA, is outrageously silly and really lacks coherence in most parts. But it also contains endlessly catchy ABBA music and some performances that you absolutely cannot miss. And not necessarily great performances, more like actors you can't miss doing stupid-cheesy-musical stuff.

The last paragraph is hardly written well, and that tends to fit the tone of the film. Sporadic, unexplainably and questionably sensual, colorful, with some (perhaps unintentionally) laugh out loud moments. It's not like this movie acts like it's an awards contender, although Streep was inexplicably nominated for a Globe that year (not like the Globes are the end-all be-all of award shows anyway). However, the cast is an impressive ensemble. Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Julie Walters, Stellan Skarsgard, and Christine Baranski among others.

There are some undeniably cringe worthy moments, most of which include actors or actresses who aren't musically inclined and attempt to perform a musical number. I hate to say it, but it reminded me of some cringey Disney Channel Original Movies. Which is why this movie can be a pain to watch but possibly a joy to re-watch. However, it can't be overstated how much of a soft-spot I have for ABBA's music, especially with this cheese-ball acting behind it. For that alone, I'm looking forward to the second film this summer.

6.0/10

What a Surprise

First review here on imdb. To be honest i took years to see Mamma Mia because i tought oh this is going to be a crap never take a moment in years to see the movie. It came the right moment i take myself a time to see the whole movie and i was very surprised with this movie. Some say it isin´t good or it´s horrible because of the singings. I say the actors and actresses can sing very well in this attending that they are not professional singers like most of the singing industry who can´t really sing. You need to give credit to this actors. Meryl Streep, Julie Walters and Christine Baranski were phenomenal in this. The only fault in this was Pierce Brosnan, i´m not sure about his cast here he sings nice but the face expressions makes me confused doesn´t match with the singing while Meryl Streep pour her emotions trough the singing perfectly. About Amanda Seyfried her voice is okay. The story of the movie is funny but not the best. Tought is very funny, it makes you want to sing and dance through the whole movie.

The movie left me with a stupid smile on my face for seconds. It left me happy and positive.

I rate this 5 out of 10.
