Mamma Mia

We went to see "Mamma Mia" today with some friends.  OK, I know I'm the last one to see it, but WE LOVED IT!!   Geez--why didn't anyone tell me that I would absolutely love it so very much?  And no one told me how cute and preppy Pierce Brosnan would look in that black polo shirt and white pants!  We were dancing in our seats and if it wouldn't have horrified Lil' Petunia I would have been dancing in the aisle since we were in the last row.  I'm still singing "Dancing Queen" (me standing on chair with remote control as microphone...):
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen

Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the right music, getting in the swing
You come in to look for a king
Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the musics high
With a bit of rock music, everything is fine
Youre in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen

Youre a teaser, you turn em on
Leave them burning and then youre gone
Looking out for another, anyone will do
Youre in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen

Confession:
I haven't gone to see it yet. I've made plans four times to go with a friend and each time something has come up. We are going Monday night if all goes well.

Great clip Gail - I haven't seen the movie but I saw the Broadway play at the Saenger several years ago. Too bad the Saenger didn't reopen after Katrina. Can't wait to see the movie.

I felt the same way! What a "feel good" movie, and I wanted to dance in the theater too!

Have a wonderful day!
