I’m so excited! Ten years ago, Mamma Mia, the Broadway musical based on the songs of 70s group ABBA, was made into a movie. It’s not Shakespeare, okay. But if you ever wanted to see a movie that just makes you feel happy, this is the one.
A decade later, the entire cast is back for a sequel, and with a few additions, most notably Cher, as Donna’s (Meryl Streep) mother. Mr. R is imminently glad that my best girl Mo and I have plans to go see it this week. I suppose it’s a chick flick, but don’t say it like it’s a bad thing. I added a sneak peek from the new movie below.
The world has become a very scary place. Up is down, right is wrong, and you never know from one day to the next what the hell is going on. So let me go sit in a cool, dark theatre for a couple of hours with a bucket of popcorn and a vat of Sprite while I may or may not sing along to songs that make me happy. Feel free to join me on the next recliner–not going to one of those moldie-oldie theatres, no thank you. I know there are those who are avoiding this movie, angered by something or other Meryl Streep said a while back. To that, I say, Good! More room for me and Mo. 😉
I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend doing things that make you happy. Be sure to hug those you love.
Happy Saturday night!
