Back in December of 2007 I had the chance to see the play Mamma Mia and it was absolutely terrific. Today, I got to see the move adaptation (in Blu Ray no less) and am happy to say that justice was served - the movie was really very well made and lots of fun to watch.
The sets in the stage production of Mama Mia were nice, but it was the actors and my imagination that gave them life. Without the confinement of a small stage, the film production had what appeared to be limitless resources with regard to the set and the film makers and the cast really made the most of the rich beauty of the Greek island of Skopelos; where much of it was filmed.
Ultimately, this film was just a joy and it invoked emotion - the acting was good the music was fun I can't say enough good things about this film.
