I am not ashamed to admit that I once owned an ABBA album, and further more I liked their music. I'll also admit that I went to see Mamma Mia' today with my daughter. What a sight! The audience that is. Truly, it was like walking into church. There were maybe a dozen men of various ages and hundreds of women, most with gray hair.
My wife will tell you that no matter what movie I am watching, I become the movie. I can't help it. This is why I hate to watch previews. I get all wrapped up in becoming the movie only to find out it is a preview! With each preview I put on a new emotion. By the time the main feature begins I am exhausted.
My wife saw Mamma Mia' with her friend. She said, "Go see it. You'll enjoy it. I am just thankful I won't be there with you." That's because I become the movie. O.k. I didn't dance during the movie. But I wanted too!
I don't care what you think about me, that I enjoyed this smaltzy chick flick. I am secure in who I am, and that my friends makes life more enjoyable.
