    Haven't seen it yet, but am very interested in the views of those who have. Reviews seem to be saying "it sucks, but you'll enjoy it."

    It has Amanda Seyfried in it, hence I'd like to see it.

    I enjoyed the play, a shock since I don't much enjoy ABBA.
    The Queen wants to see the movie but she's off on a girls weekend so I don't have to suck it up this weekend.

    The play is awesome (and I do like Abba music). I think the bigger "stage" a movie affords will dissipate the constant surge of energy the play provides

    I thought Hairspray would be that way, dools, but it worked on film. So maybe it will work here.

    I kinda want to see it just for the spectacle of Brosnan and Firth trying to sing.

    The reviewer at my old joint did not have kind things to say about the movie or Brosnan's singing.

    Yeah, the reviews I have seen panned the hell out of the males. Sounds like Gere in the movie version of Chicago.

    My mom and I will probably go to see this when we're in Montana next week. ABBA was about all we could agree on when we were driving to Arkansas the night my grandfather died.

    Isn't that reviewer the bastard who doesn't like anything?

    He's not a bastard. He's a terrific guy. Very funny. Very generous. A Reds fan but I'll look past that.
    But, yeah, he doesn't like too many movies.

    I'll see it. But how can you cast for the movie and not get people who can sing?
