Movie Review: "Mama Mia!"

Shocking I know that I watched "Mama Mia!" this summer, it wasn't my idea of course, and was the payment necessary for getting to watch what I really wanted to see: "The Dark Knight".

Now I fully expected to experience 90 minutes of torture, but the flick was surprisingly (mostly) pain-free. The story was flimsy, and the dance routines were kind of stiff, but somehow the Greek setting and the attractive cast (including extras) made it semi-enjoyable.

Of course, I have to mention that the writer seemed to have run out of steam when she decided to inexplicably turn one of the potential-fathers into a homosexual -- which started from an off-the-cuff remark from another character -- as she apparently didn't create any other female character for him to hook up with. It certainly made no sense.

All in all I'd rate it as a CABLE viewing.
