Just got back from Mamma Mia Premiere!!!#1

I dont wanna talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You've come to shake my HAND


I did just that. I shook Meryl Streeps, Bjorn's and Benny's, Colim Firth, and Pierce Brosnan. I got the leftover "BLUE" carpet from the ceremony lol. Meryl was sooo gracious. I told her The Winner Takes it all scene, I broke into tears of Happiness and Joy. And Bjorn, well I said ABBA is my Prozac. I know it was cheezy but I was ESTATIC the entire time. My pictures got kinda blurry due to my hands trembling like hell.

The creators, write, director of the show/movie were there as well. Rita Wilson, Jane Seymour, Amanda Seyfried, her friends from the movie, I think Louise Pitre was there. Along with alot of shirtless models.

I never knew I would come this close to OMG I am just speechless.

Did you get any idea about the response to the movie itself?

Some people were die hard fans of the Show. Some people were die hard fans of Colin Firth. But The press I thought generally think that Mamma Mia is a hit. Not a Nobel Piece Prize Movie but giddy and free spirited.


my pic of Bjorn from ABBA when I met him

Some reviews have been hilarious.

There was a British critic who found it "diabolical" only to be asked by his children why he was singing "Souper Trouper" as he was washing his car. He admitted, "Those bloody AbbA earwhigs have gotten to me."

He was forced to concede that the movie was like much like life, "Utterly incomprehensible, mysteriously conceived, and dreadfully frightful at times but
in the end, a joy that we loathe to see end."

Eagleman, can you post the link to that review?
I'm trying to find it on Google, but it's not coming up.
