Mamma Mia really is the most atrocious film ever, is it not?

Jeez, DP just made me sit through it. Bloody awful, cheesy story line, awful music crow-barred. To make it worse, there are some decent actors in there, what were they thinking?

I haven't seen it yet. May watch it on sky later if there isn't anything else on!

giddykipper Sun 21-Jun-09 13:32:03

Don't, you'll want to scratch your eyes out.

One of the most atrocious. Up there with 'The Hangover' [shudder]

giddykipper Sun 21-Jun-09 13:34:14

I haven't seen that, is it awful? DP is recommending it (which is usually a bad sign, his favourite film is French Kiss)

mamma mia must be watched when drinking lambrini through a straw with your silliest mates. Very enjoyable

Worried about your DP

I just couldn't get into it in the slightest. I have nothing against Abba - the whole thing was just vaguely embarrassing

jellybeans Sun 21-Jun-09 13:37:06

I liked it!

Thunderduck Sun 21-Jun-09 13:38:08

I rather like it.

MrKrabs Sun 21-Jun-09 13:39:23

all those dungarees, the JUMPING OFF thigns all tehtime
it was shite

I was soooo disappointed with it. i was really looking forward to it but didnt enjoy it at all....I just didnt get it.
I though The Hangover was hilarious though! smile

the thing about mama mia is that you have to imagine it as a stage show which is esentially what it is - then its cheesiness, bad set and costumes and OTT acting are totally appropriate.

theDreadPirateRoberts Sun 21-Jun-09 13:45:20

The Hangover is probably very funny if you have a high-tolerance for the emotionally-stunted and want to laugh at:

o fat people in jock straps
o chinese people with no penises
o men who want to avoid their wives and children.

Oh, and Mike Tyson is in it.

It is indeed...

I saw it when one week overdue with DS and nearly had too leave - it was all too happy and smiley and I really wasn't in the mood.

Mind you, saw Australia last night and that was almost as bad IMHO.

Well I loved it because the music was good and it didn't not involve any brain power to watch it.

It is just a cheesy, fun film. My friends and family loved it too.

intellectual it certainly isn't.

mears Sun 21-Jun-09 13:53:18

Maybe it depends how stressed you are as to how much you enjoy it? It was much needed 'time out' for me.

cornsilk Sun 21-Jun-09 13:53:23

It's not that bad. I agree about the dungarees though. Cringy!

theDreadPirateRoberts Sun 21-Jun-09 13:53:38

The music might have been good, but Pierce Brosnan Can Not Sing and shouldn't be allowed to try in public. Ouch.

FigmentOfYourImagination Sun 21-Jun-09 13:53:47

I cannot bring myself to watch it.

MrKrabs Sun 21-Jun-09 13:54:00

its me
le poisson - how ARE you

mears Sun 21-Jun-09 13:57:33

Tres bien! Et toi?

Katisha Sun 21-Jun-09 14:04:20

Hsven't seen it. Not going to bother.

But I did get round to watching something else I hadn't seen before on DVD the other day. Richard Armitage in North and South. It's going to take a long time to recover, if ever...
