I watched Momma Mia last night and loved it. It just makes you want to jump up and dance. The music was great. The story has been done in many slants.. woman child who's the father thing but it was cute and scenery was awesome and well worth the watch. Have you seen it? xoxoxoxoxoxo

Thank you both for such a fun mental picture. I think there needs to be a movie "Dances with Dogs"

I have not seen it yet but I really want to. I wanted to see it when it came out in theaters but did not have any free time to do so. I have it in my list of movies on my Netflix account. I have a few others I am watching before it and I hope to get it in the mail soon. I am glad to see you liked it. I have heard great things about it and am excited to see how it is myself.

I loved Mamma Mia! It was such a great "feel good" film and had some of my favourite female actresses in it! You can't beat a good bit of Abba... and combined with a good chick flick there was no way it could fail!!

I just watched this movie last week. I too loved it. My daughter was up dancing. The music was great. I loved the plot, and I loved how it ended. I will watch it again in the future.

I have not seen Momma Mia, but that is one that I would like to see. I do not get much time to watch movies, but I love the kind that make you want to dance and sing. Glad to know it will be worth a watch.

i wanted to watch it on the big screen, but the local theaters cut short the screening because of 'poor response'.. my countrymen dont enjoy musicals that much, i guess.. but we watched the DVD - me, my husband and my five children.. and we all loved it! Meryl Streep really can sing.. it was quite amused watching Mr.James Bond sing, though.. , i also loved the two ladies who played Meryl Streep's good friends.. my husband and i had a lot of fun singing along to the songs throughout the movie.. and i think my children have fallen in love with Abba's songs..

I have not seen the movie my friend wanted me to go to it when it was in the theaters but I just thought it looked a little bit cheesy. Glad you liked it. I might watch it one of these days. I bet the Library has it to check out so I won't waste any money if I dont' like it.

I think you will be surprised.. Cheesy..yes a bit but it will still have you jumping and sit down dancing. If you request at your library most will let you know when it's available. xooxoxxoxo

Have I seen it? I saw it at the theater. Knew that I was gonna buy that DVD. I did and in the month that I have owned it I have watched it all the way through 4 times, plus, differant parts of it another, I don't know, 7 or 8 times? It is mt new favorite movie. I'm afraid to watch it too many times because I don't want to get tired of it. Did you know that is now the best selling DVD of all time. It surpassed titanic and everything else. Not surprising, is it? I could go downstairs right now and watch it. But I just did a couple of days ago. I think Merryl Streep should have won the golden globe award. I hope she wins either the SAG or even better yet, the Oscar.

Meryl was great! I couldn't believe how different she looked compared to some of her last few movies where she has played older much more uptight women. I like Julie Walters also. She has something special about her. oxoxxoxoxo

Hi. My husband and I went to see it when it was in the theaters. My sister thought my husband would sleep through it since it is a musical...but to my surprise, he loved it. We both found it very foot tapping and the story line was OK as well. We would recommend others to see it. Nadine

I had seen Momma Mia long ago, and it is very musical. The lead actress, i don't know the name, i could not believe that she can sing. And Merry Streep seems enjoying the movie with singing. And Pierce Brosnen with angelic face can sing? This is a very good film.

No, Raydene, I haven't seen it yet although I plan to and I must say you make me even more anxious to watch it. I think right now I need something with great music that will make me want to get up and dance! I know the previews looked really good and VERY upbeat and it sure does have a great cast. I think the young actress who is in Big Love - Amanda something, I can't remember her last name - is going to go far. Annie

I asked for my husband to get it for me for Christmas. I hadn't seen it but I thought it looked good. I watched it with my 7 month old and he loved it. He was dancing the whole time! I thought it was a really cute story!
