Mamma Mia!

Confession: I'm a sucker for movie musicals. I love them. A plot and theme all set to song and dance - entertainment at its finest. Whenever I was a little girl we rented Grease from the movie store so often that finally one day mom just asked if she could buy it.

You can imagine my joy when the answer was "yes" and we carried it home to own forever that very day. I always so jealous of Olivia Newton-John because of all that dancing that she got to do with John Travolta. Not to mention the fact that she got to ride off into the sunset (literally) with him in the jazzy car. Some of my other favorites are Chicago, Hairspray, Dreamgirls, and of course The Sound of Music. When mom and I were in Vegas last year we went to see Mamma Mia! at Mandalay Bay, and we loved it. A musical full of ABBA tunes...what's not to love?!? Needless to say I'm super stoked that the movie opens tomorrow. I know what I'm doing this weekend. In the meantime I'll be listening to my ABBA Gold CD to prepare for it. Yes, I own the CD, and no I'm not ashamed to admit it. :)

You'll have to let me know how the movie is compared to onstage...I saw Mamma Mia in Hong Kong and absolutely loved it. I just can't imagine the movie being near as enjoyable.

Um, is there a reason why Olivia Newton-John's name is over John's face, and vice versa?

Because JT was a bigger deal in the movie than ON-J so he was listed first but Olivia's best side is her right side so she had to be on that side of the picture. That's why.

I was totally jealous of Sandy!
