Simon Says: Happy 20th Birthday to you Amy! All the best in UK.
Thanks to Nuffnang, I get be one of the early batch of audience to watch Mama Mia! The Movie in GSC 1 Utama, simultaneously another session was on in Penang too. When I was young, I used to listen to aunt's ABBA's cassette. The catchy tune stayed in my head even after many years. Some of the most memorable songs are "Dancing Queen,", "Money, Money, Money", and of course "Mama Mia!".
This is a fun movie to watch with Meryl Streep take the lead as Donna. She put up a great performance and even though she's not a professional singer, her singing is not bad at all. Her combination with her two supporting actress Julie Walters as Rosie and Christine Baranski as Tanya created a great chemistry as they were a band call Donna & the Dynammos in their younger days in the movie.
Some of the audience sang along with the character in the movie and as for me, I don't quite know the lyrics just sat there enjoying the movie. Until Donna and her two bff start to jam the song Dancing Queen, I have a hard time controlling my urge to stand up and dance to the music. Of course my logical mind was able to prevented me from making a fool out of myself in front of about 200 plus audience in the cinema.

Nicholas brought his client to watch the movie.
Donna's daughter Sophie is played by Amanda Seyfried. She's very cute by the way. Her singing is good too. I really like her singing "I Have A Dream" in the opening and ending which is so calming.
Overall all the other actors play their part very well except for some downside when ex-James Bond Mr. Pierce Brosnan open his mouth and sing solo. It nearly spoiled my mode to continue watching the movie. Inside me I have the urge to want to shout "Shut up already".

Zoe is another good daughter that brought her mum here.
In short, this is a very entertaining movie for the whole family and for people around my age or older (those growing up listening to ABBA) to have a nostalgic moment. If you go to the box office and can't decide which movie to choose, well this is the first choice you should choose.
The secondary purpose of me coming here is to camwhore with PamSong. Mission accomplished.
