I’m sure there are many momentous things happening today: international intrigue, the birthdays of famous people, new folks appointed to Barack Obama’s cabinet, etc. But nothing can top today’s most important event:
“Mamma Mia! The Movie” comes out on DVD.
Now I can play the “Dancing Queen” scene 15 times in a row. I love the part where all the ladies in the film wind up on a pier shaking their booties in a display of wild abandon that can come only from being on a Greek island AND having ABBA pumped through your veins.
Yes, I know my fellow ‘Hivers might mock me because I really have no idea who Ice Cube is (and, what’s more, will in just a few minutes be giving away tickets to “The Nutcracker” and not to his show), but I cheerfully admit to “Mamma Mia” fever.
Sure, the movie itself had its flaws. (When I watched it again last night on DVD, I experienced the intense pleasure of fast-forwarding through Pierce Brosnan’s howlingly bad “SOS.”) But I don’t care. All I know is that watching “Dancing Queen” and “Super Trouper” puts a big, stupid grin on my face every time.
Any other “Mamma Mia” fans out there rejoicing with me in the new DVD?
