The one with an observation

For years, I’ve been the one recommending what we go to see and what we watch when it comes to movies. After coming home last night, we were debating something to watch and Ger said why not Mama Mia!

I'm not a musical fan in any sense of the word. As a matter of fact I’d prefer to take on a fleet load of Somali pirates, armed with nothing but Daniel O Donnell CD’s, than watch a musical. So, hell froze over last night and I agreed!

I didn't love Mama Mia, but I did enjoy it to a point. There’s no getting away from the fact that the soundtrack is superb!

Now for the observation! Did anyone else find the whole thing a bit fuckin’ nuts, kinda like a sequel to One flew over the cuckoos nest. You have a group of people on an island who break into song at a moments notice (primarily spurred on by a word they hear) and then the whole thing comes to an end with a wet t-shirt competition, where children and a priest are part of the contestants.

Either its a great musical, or one of the most fucked up movies of our time! That said, Meryl Streep had a certain sexiness about her, even more so that Stifler’s Mom!
