OK, I’ve admitted it. And while I’m admitting my weakneses I’ll also admit to being a fan of Abba. That’s my excuse for watching Mamma Mia on Blu-ray this afternoon – it came free with the player.
Everything I’ve heard about the film is right. It’s awful. The acting is hammy – deliberately, I assume, to be closer to a stage musical. The singing is dreadful, the story is cliche after cliche. The music, however is just great sing along stuff.
Did Blu-ray enhance the experience? Yes it probably did. The sound quality was excellent.
Will I watch the film again. If hell freezes over, perhaps.
