And another thing

Mama Mia is not a good movie. It's probably not even a good musical. Abba lyrics were never meant to stand up to plot synthesis or dialogical consistency. Freud would have had a heyday with this movie - not to mention Dworkin.

ugh.

(N refused to see it. About 5 mintes in I was so grateful that he wasn't there and at
least the I-told-you-so's were internal. I figured (before-hand) - maybe it was like Babe. A movie, which on the face of it, was going to be over-emotional, family-values crap, but which was very funny and charming and lovely. It wasn't. I realise this is all subjective.)

However, I have had an almost constant song list of Abba on my internal radio station ever since. It makes everything seem vaguely frivolous.

I am pointing and giggling from half a world away...

I had a roommate in college who listened to Abba all the time. I have taken years to try and erase them from my memory. I'm sure this film would just bring them all back, so I've stayed far away...

On the other hand, Across the Universe, a film based on Beatles songs? Loved it...
