Mama Mia! a Movie with ABBA Music

I went to see "Mama Mia!" with my friend Susan for her birthday. It was a sweet movie, as far as these types of movies go. Like icing on a cake, it was an enjoyable musical treat. I liked hearing the ABBA songbook, seeing the gorgeous Greek isles, and experiencing the joie de vivre of the characters. All the actors played their roles admirably, although I could have done with out Pierce Brosnan's singing.

I got to thinking of "Muriel's Wedding", the 1995 Australian film starring Toni Collette. ABBA's music was central to that delightful film, too.
