I can tell right now that this movie is bad, and not good-bad the way we all love but just a pitiful attempt to lull us into a They Live style of dullness.

I have not seen it nor will I ever watch it even if you tied me to a chair and taped my eyelids open.  Why?  Because it's pointless!  Even if by some miracle someone decided they would want to see this they'd watch the play.  But no, let's take this pathetic excuse for a premise and make a blockbuster extravaganza from it!  Seriously, I have 3 possible daddies that I never met before, should I take a DNA test to figure out who it is?  NO!  That's easy and simple, let's have a crazy scheme to pick out my real father.  Not only that but pretty much every person in this movie is uglier than The Elephant Man, and the previews want to make me shoot myself with a nail gun.  I'll stop now for fear of my head exploding.

Don't watch this sad excuse for a movie! EVER!

Hey, I wouldn't be so quick to judge this film.  Movies like Citizen Kane and Casablanca were both panned by the critics when they first came out. Even It's a Wonderful Life was never a classic until it began being shown on TV. A movie like Mamma-Mia . . .

Oh, who the hell am I kidding! Of course it gonna suck! It's Abba music for Christ sake! I'm old enough to have lived during Abba!'s hayday It wasn't pretty! God help us all . . .

But for the record, Abba made a film called Abba: The Movie (1977) that is just bad enough to be laughable (If you can deal with the music)

I saw it on Broadway and survived...barely.  Of course Broadway shows are going to be made into movies eventually.  However, the ongoing trend seems to be reversing.  Taking films like Legally Blonde and Dirty Rotten Scoundrals and making them into Broadway shows.  The whole thing is lame IMHO.

I don't think that Abba are too bad a band, if a little dated. I seem to remember that Elvis Costello cited them a as influence. (Just listen to the piano motif on "Oliver's Army".) However the move itself looks like the stuff of nightmares for someone like myself who hates musicals (even "The Forbidden Zone"). All that winsomely energetic, over drilled song and dance dross does my head in every time.

I liked the musical play, but I am not too sure on the film.  Though I think my wife may make me take her.

I really thought you were serious there, what a relief.

Actually Sister there is nothing worst than From Justin To Kelly when it comes to movie musicals.  I reviewed it, it was awful.

My girlfriend was a big fan of the play and went and saw the movie the other day.  I'm glad to say I participated in neither of them, but her feedback was the movie was horrible.  Something about you shouldn't get the director of the play be the director of the movie... 

Anyways, one of her biggest complaints was that some of the musical numbers weren't even Abba songs.  Seems a bit silly doesn't it?

So score one for the anti Mamma Mia movie poll.

Last week I saw a commercial for this film on TV and my oldest nephew who is 4 was in the living room when it was on and said to me "Mommy sings songs from that all the time".  I'm not really huge on musicals so I will most likely not watch this movie.

Unless you count High School Musical, but I suppose that shouldn't really count, as it's a tv movie made for kids.

But damn is it terrible.  Only high point of that is it stars Ashley Tisdale, who I find attractive (she's in her 20's, so it's okay to say that.)

I can't wait for Evil Dead: the Musical: The Movie! Lookingup

And, yes. It is FREAKING hilarious. And full of cursing (both Candarian style and bad language) and gore galore (we're talking first three rows soaked in fake blood, Gallagher-style). If you're a straight guy, female, or just a gore hound, go see it live.

  I saw the trailers and thought that there was no way I'd ever see this movie (and with the same conviction as Quint saying he'd never wear a life jacket again). I don't know why but then I started thinking that maybe I would see it IF Ed O'Neil aka Al Bundy was in it as one of the "Dad Candidates", as Al Bundy. He could just walk around and Bundy up the joint while all the colorful,winsome, sincere and well scrubbed cast memebers looked on in horror. I can't explain my reaction, that's just what happened. But I bet it'd make for a better movie.
