But before I move on to my movie feature, let us go back to what one of Couchers posted last week for the theme Great Outdoor Adventure Movie. Nuts of Embrace Life featured The Beach. Find out why Nuts found it one of the best movies she has ever seen here.
And now for my pick for this week's theme: None other than the 2008 Meryl Streep starrer Mama Mia! I really enjoyed this movie for a lot of reasons. The songs used in the movie were from one of my favorite 70's group, ABBA. The movie was shot in Greece, one of my dream travel destinations. Meryl Streep was just so great here, it shows how flexible an artist she is. I was just surprised to see Pierce Brosnan, the famous Bond icon, singing ABBA too! Indeed, it was a very fun movie that is worth watching again.
What the movie is all about? It is all about Donna Sheridan, a single mother and her daughter, bride-to-be Sophie Sheridan. Sophie dreams of having her father walk her down the aisle on her wedding day so that when she discovers her mother's diary and founds out that one of the three men mentioned could possibly be her father, she invites them to come to the island. As the events unfold, you would laugh, you would cry, you would feel bittersweet, you would sing along, and you would be surprised. Hubby was skeptical at first whether he should watch along owing to the fact that it is a musical movie. He was surprised to find that he likes it too!
