Let's go to the movies

So ... most of my days (and nights) are consumed by all things baby, cleaning, cooking, laundry, yoga, working out, Joe, and television. As boring as this may sound to some, I love my life. Simple. Satisfying and uncomplicated.

With the new year I wanted to start reviewing movies I see and give my take on them. Nothing serious, just a little something about the movie, what I liked, what I hated, etc.

Mama Mia:

Hated it.

I know it is a musical and everything is supposed to be over the top, but this was too much. I couldn't take it! All the middle aged women and their secret handshakes, and googly eyes and really, really, really bad acting was nauseating. Not to mention I didn't really like the music so it was hard for me to get into it. When the main girl got all of her potential fathers on the boat I just fast forwarded it to the end so I could see who it was. I grew up watching musicals (a true musical fan will easily be able to tell me the movie that the title to this blog comes from) so I know a good one when I see it and this definitely was not it

I saw the musical at the Fox Theater here in ATL and absolutely loved it! The same group of girlfriends went to see the movie and we were not impressed. The play is so much better so if it comes to Tucson, go see it.

I kinda wish i was a fan before the movie...you know if you love one you might love the other. i wonder if it would have have worked better.
