Well, yes, I have some friends who love this movie possibly better than toast with cheesewiz on it, which to me is just as difficult to understand.Â But today inÂ Indigo Books, they had the soundtrack playing and I like ABBA, so it sounded hopeful. Yes we bought it.
The songs are, well, messed with enough so that they don't sound like the soundtrack, so that was a greatÂ disappointment. And they keptÂ interruptingÂ the music for the acting and no, IÂ neverÂ thought I'd hear me say that.
But there was a story line to follow, and they did do some of my favourite ABBA tunes, so, yeah.Â
SeemsÂ I can sing better than Pierse Brosnan and I look better too, if I say so myself, and Lauralea is way way better looking than Meryl Streep, (What were they thinking putting her in it, ...at least she can sing).
The best part of the disk?
They have all the songs on the dvd and you can have the words up on the screen so you can sing along. So we did.Â Yep, we sat on the couch, the old lady and I, and we sang the hits of ABBA, in harmony.Â
Sadly, that was fun.
So, the movie? Maybe about a 4 or 5.Â
The sing-a-long ABBA songs? Yeah, that's an 8 or 9.
