“Mamma Mia.. Here I go again…”

Honest truth : Meryl Streep going ” You are the dancing queeeeeen, young and free, only seventeeeeen” doesn’t quite work for me. And 007 – the man with the license to kill – singing with sad droopy eyes filled with emotions? C’mon… I want the guns and the shades! And the singing, oh the singing… There were screeches everywhere!

However : ABBA can never go wrong. I found myself singing along and at some points, on top of my lungs too.  Good thing I didn’t watch this movie at the cinema or I might just encounter a terribly embarrassing episode. It made me dig up my ABBA CD I have not touched for some time. The dancing was a tad too ‘over’ for my taste but it did make me laugh. And the part where Donna was helping Sophie get ready for her wedding moved me to tears.

Well, overall I would still rate the movie as a must-watch. Pierce Brosnan was as dashing as ever, Colin Firth was the charming Englishman that he is and it is quite entertaining seeing Meryl Streep singing and dancing to Mamma Mia. And the ending (sigh) was just lovely…
