Mamma Mia - take 2
Having watched it once already, I went back to see Mamma Mia, this time the sing-along version. It's like a massive karaoke - whenever there's a song in the film, the words appear at the bottom of the screen and you can sing along to them.
This time I knew exactly what to expect and wasn't distracted by the little details, like place names and the age difference between Meryl Streep and Colin Firth. Instead, I took in the beautiful scenery (and I don't mean just Pierce Brosnan & Stellan Skarsgård) and let the music carry me away. And it did. I had a really good time and loved being able to sing along without fear of being hushed.
The only drawback is that the tunes are so catchy they're still in my head! Mamma Mia, here I go again, my my, how can I resist you?
