Mamma mia, here I go again...My my, how can I resist you?

This week my sister Mrs. Manny Ramirez and I were invited with other Divalicious Moms (and Dads)to an exclusive premier of “Mama Mia”. Now for some folks that means not a damn thing, but I like to say that my sisters and I are the reincarnate of three equally fabulous gay men so we were overjoyed. The movie was great, it was bright and fun. And the background to all of this was the lovely Greece, crystal clear water and mountains. GORGEOUS!

I love ABBA so this was the perfect mid-week treat for me, I sang through the entire movie. The singing by Pierce Bronson wasn't pitch perfect (nor was Meryl Streeps) but they all looked liked they were having such a great time and that was passed through the screen to the audience. But how could you not have a great time with this as your background (I am so there). This movie is not for everyone, but I would see it (I will see it ) again.

Enjoy the musical stylings of ABBA which provided the entire soundtrack for the movie (and the play)

My lil' sister loves Abba, "Dancing Queen" did her in. I am thinking of taking her to see this movie for her birthdya coming up but I am hesitant because I don't do well with musical movies after seeing them on Broadway, I am too critical and disappointed, lol. LOL @ your reincarnation of gay men.

@118 thanks for dropping by. It is definitely not a movie for a dude.

@go B,I use to feel the same way about some movies. But I was singing and doing a toe tap through this one. Its really a good story about forgiveness and love.

@Eb Who did you think that disclaimer was for...You and Jaded HAHAHA.
I am passed excited about India Arie in For Colored girls. I love broadway, and I love it even more when there are people I admire.

@Lena good movie for a little sister to see. As much as I love a broadway show, it can be a bit much for someone young.
