    has been on the hbo channels the last two weeks. riddle me this: i hate abba. don't generally like musicals. but...

    i'm strangely drawn to it. perhaps it's streep, who i'd watch washing dishes. but i'm enjoying it for what it is -- fun fluff.

    have i lost my mind? ??? ??? ???

    Terrible movie. And I wanted to do terrible things to 2/3 of the adult male leads.

    Didn't see the movie. I did see the musical. Not an ABBA fan at all but I liked the show.

    Not sure that's what she meant by terrible things.

    Yeah, pretty sure you're on different pages.

    Poor Brosnan. Seems like a nice enough guy...can't sing a lick.

    The play is awesome. The movie wasn't quite as good. Streep sang pretty good, tho you'd have to say she was slumming way below her league. The concept of Brosnan singing was abhorrent. The best part of either is the songs after the main part of the show is over, and the movie did only two songs, not the three the play does.

    Brosnan singing was disastrous. And some of the songs were soooooooooo shoehorned into the "plot." Embarrassingly bad ...

    Well, that's the case in the play, too. At least the movie had a couple fewer songs, thus we were spared the embarrassment of Name of the Game being very badly shoehorned in.

    I wouldn't say it's "good," but it is fun to watch.

    I have it on TiVo but I haven't watched it yet. I do like ABBA. I also know going into it that Pierce Bronson's singing sucked.
