Mamma Mia

Mamma Mia is right LOL. Ok so we finally watched this movie. I will start with the positive about this movie. It does make you feel good. It was nice to see Meryl Streeps daughter (she is super cute). It does make you smile and "acting" was good. BUT the singing??? OMG where in the hell was Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson's head when they cast this cast knowing that it was a SINGING movie?? I LOVE ABBA!! I know they are hookey but I love them anyway ;O). But seriously, whoever told Meryl Streep she could sing needs some serious ear cleaning. And Pierce Bronson OMG he needs to just stick to be damn good looking for his age. Then there was the little women that played one of her best friends (sorry I have not a clue who she even was or what she has ever played in) when she sang, I seriously thought OMG someone switched this to a very bad American Idol audition!!! ALL my good ABBA song were butchered to say the least. I was so disappointed. I know there are some "big" names that can sing. Why the hell they cast these people is beyond me. Streep is one of my most favorite actresses ever. She is damn good. But she does NOT need to sing. I will give her credit that she was better than Pierce and that other chick but still. As my mom pointed out... Ethel Merman was known for her singing and she couldn't sing a damn lick either. I can't imagine the DVD sales on this one are going to be good. And now I understand why it was in and out of the theaters fast

Could care less about Mama Mia, but if you think Meryl can't sing, rent "Postcards from the Edge". Just watch the end credits - she's amazing.
