Brief introduction

I’m going to tell you about a movie I saw  a few months ago. While I normally do enjoy films, this one I didn’t like at all – and that’s quite unusual for me.

What the film was

The film was Mama Mia. I suppose you’ve probably heard of it because it’s become quite a phenomenon – a cult movie I guess you could say. It’s a form of musical and is based on the songs of Abba. I think it was adapted from a stage show but I’m not quite sure of that. It’s also a bit of a romcom as the plot revolves around the romantic relationships of a mother and daughter.

When I watched it

I had first heard about the film quite a long time ago and just had never bothered watching because i was fairly sure it wasn’t going to be my cup of tea. But as I was saying a few months back I did sit down and put it on. My girlfriend had given me the DVD and told me I had to see it.

Who I watched it with

I didn’t in fact watch it with her but saw it by myself one evening when I had nothing else to do. I’m quite glad she wasn’t there as I absolutely hated it. While I quite like the original songs the performances in the film were absolutely terrible and the whole romance part of the movie didn’t really work either.

Why I didn’t enjoy it

I suppose it all ended happily ever after but in truth I couldn’t even watch it to the end. It was that bad and overall a very disappointing experience.
