I watched the movie version of this Broadway Show. Although I haven't seen the broadway show, I would say that this movie is very good considering that they are able to make Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan sing! Just by hearing about it, you might think that this movie would be boring since it is not the day and age for movie musicals anymore. But this movie is able to pull that one off very well. Their dialogues may be sung, but it didn't seem to be too overacting nor overstretched. The way the actors sung the song, it is just like they are talking to each other. So the balance of acting and singing can be seen. Have you seen this movie? Did you like it? Have you seen the broadway version? How is the movie compared to the broadway show?

I loved the movie! I think i'm just a fan of musicals. I also haven't seen the theater version of Mama Mia, but i guess it's worth watching it in the movies too. I love the way they choreographed the musical scenes ( believe me, my eyes seldom blink during those scenes). And i love the energy given to it by the casts of the movie. I can't believe that Meryl Streep and and other two members of "Dynamo" can have such energy and danced so well aside from singing. I rate the movie with 4 stars because its very entertaining and i love the way they delivered the beautiful/emotional songs of ABBA! Thumbs up!
