Mamma Mia! The Movie

I'm sure most of the people in my "strawberry" generation has heard of the phrase Mamma Mia and maybe even the song by ABBA.

But do you know what it actually means?

Apparently, Mamma Mia = "My Mother" in italian. And it is used as an expression of frustration or surprise. As you can see in the classic line of "Mamma mia, here we go again..." lol.

Mamma Mia started as a broadway production in 1999 and till now, at least 30 million people has seen it!

And for those who did not have the chance to see the broadway musical, it is now coming to you in big screen cinemas worldwide!

oh my mother! :P

Telling the story of a girl who is getting married and dreams of having her father walk her down the aisle, but the big problem is - she doesn't know who her father is!

Therefore, she somehow gets her hands on her mother's diary and found out there are 3 men who could have been her father... and guess what she does? She invites 3 of them to the wedding - without telling her mother!!

She thought she would be able to tell which is her real father just by spending time with them.. but apparently it's not as easy as she thinks!

I am eager to find out what happens after that (and I love love musicals!!) so Nuffnang.. can I have the tickets? Pretty please? Thanks!! ^v^

Btw here's the trailer for whoever who's interested.

With an all star cast of Meryl Streep (the evil boss in Devil Wears Prada), Amanda Seyfried (the dumb plastic girl in Means Girls), Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth etc.
