Mamma Mia! highest grossing film of all time at British box office

Mamma Mia! becomes most successful film at British box office (link via telegraph.co.uk) I'm not surprised about this news. The movie has Abba songs telling the story and it was filmed on gorgeous Greek islands to provide its stunning scenery and stars Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan and Julie Walters. It is simply a delight to watch, and provides an opportunity to forget about life's problems. In other words, pure escapism. Have you seen Mamma Mia! yet? What are your thoughts about the movie? related post from my blog: Mamma Mia! movie review

  1. It's not really my kind of movie but everyone I know who has seen it said they thoroughly enjoyed it.
    It's always good to see such feel good films, especially at this time of year. xx

  2. I think you might be pleasantly surprised if you ever see the movie, flighty. My husband hates musicals but he enjoyed it.

    Yes, it's the perfect movie to counterbalance all the bad news. We need more feel good movies like this!

  3. Mareen I've not seen it yet. It just didn't appeal to me for some reason. Give me Pretty Woman any day... or a Few Good Men...
    "You want the truth? You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!!" ohhh, I came over all gooey. Mr Nicholson is so masterful... what were we talking about? Mama Mia! No doubt I can't hide from it for ever and when I see it I will be back here with my verdict. :o)

  4. Fair enough, daffy. The movie isn't going to appeal to absolutely everyone.

  5. I wasn't being rude Maureen, I was just sharing in the post and adding my own bit. You are absolutely right! Nothing appeals to absolutely everyone... What would be the fun in that. Ah well, at least I managed to spell your name right this time.

  6. I know you weren't being rude, daffy. I appreciate all your comments and I was just acknowledging your comment by admitting that I realize the movie won't appeal to everyone. As you quite rightly say, "Nothing appeals to absolutely everyone... What would be the fun in that." :)
