I secretly adore most of the music of Abba. I mean, what girl doesn't like the song Dancing Queen? Now that you know, can you believe that before Christmas Eve, I'd never seen the play (nor the movie) that highlights their music?
I worked all night Christmas Eve. My daughter and I had hoped to go to Midnight Mass, but by the time I got home from work, it was long over. I gave her Mamma Mia! as an early Christmas gift and we sat down to be entertained. Let's just say, I have a brand new appreciation for Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski and especially, Julie Waters. Even Pierce Brosnan gets another nod.
If you're like me and haven't seen this movie, get thee to Blockbusters. Better yet, buy it. It's sure to go into that stack of movies you pull out on rainy and blue days.
