Erin G.

I liked it. I didn't love it. I liked the way it was filmed. Or maybe I just love Greece. I admit that I watched "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" over the weekend. Greece is just so beautiful.

Oh, Pierce Brosnan was terrible, right? Bless his heart.


I liked it because I don't usually like musicals. I didn't need much of a plot. I didn't need the kids falling in love and I certainly did not need to hear Pierce Brosnan singing and looking all smarmy. I loved it because Meryl Streep made it look like she was having the time of her life.

Mrs. The Hall

i'm going to see menopause the musical with coworkers.

because that's what grown ups do, GO AND SEE THESE TYPES OF THINGS because then WHEN OTHER PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IT . . .

i can be part of the conversation.

I have hopes it will be ok. I tell you what though. I need to work with younger type folks.


ok good. Abba. weehheee!

I liked it because it looked like a bunch of people decided to go to Greece for a vacation, then said, "Let's make a movie!" Filmwise it's crap - there's basically no structure, no plot - just an excuse for people to stop and sing. But it's happy crap. Sometimes we just like stuff that has no intrinsic value - like cotton candy.

Colin Firth looked embarrassed, Pierce Brosnan was embarrassing, Meryl Streep can't do warm and likeable - and yet the movie was fun because it really looked as though the actors were having fun. And despite the lyrics being so obviously English-as-a-second-language (and what excuse do English-speaking songwriters have? I mean, "If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it?" - ???) - the music is just so irresistibly catchy.


I think Mama Mia is silly. I'm a Rent-head.


I laughed through the whole thing. I enjoyed it. I bought it.

Of course I don't eat pig snouts either.


Never saw Mama Mia. No desire. I'm waiting for the musical version of the Vagina Monologues.


Erin G - Greece? The sun's too bright there. And I think that was what got me, PB was so so bad.
Becs - Well, in some scenes she did. But then, so did PB.
Mrs The Hall - I hear Menopause has a great vibrator song.
Crystal (Bratcw) - I got stuck on the bad and couldn't get past it to the happy.
Big Dot - "English-as-a-second-language" - my very thought when I saw some awkward word in the lyrics : I've forgotten, but I think it was "Imperiously."
.75 - I still haven't seen Rent. I'm sure it's wonderful.
Zayrina - Well, or cultured butter.
3 - I'm thinking Zack amd Mira Make a Porno might kind of be like the Vagina Monologues.


I hated this too, and I love musicals. Mine are usually filmed in TechnaColor and from the 40's/50's.


You can rent the movie Rent...it's almost as good because it has a few of the original cast members and fills in a lot of the story.


Surprising Woman - I like the 60's musicals. Anything with Julie Andrews.
.75 - Inever saw La Boheme, but I saw Camille. Isn't that what it's based on?


Yes..it's based on La Boheme but MUCH better!


.75 - I'm sure I'll see the movie someday.
