Streep and Brosnan to Star in Mamma Mia

Firstly: "Mamma Mia!" as a movie. It's true: The Broadway musical based on the campy songs of Swedish pop group ABBA is going to be made into a film. Baffling, I know. But wait, there's more! Pierce Brosnan and Meryl Streep have signed on to costar in the film! My reaction: Whaaa?

As a rule, I'm not a big fan of making musicals into films. Chicago translated well into film, Dreamgirls — in my opinion — not so much. Even more confusing is this trend of making films into musicals (Legally Blonde, Edward Scissorhands?!) And while I know "Mamma Mia!" was big with the, uh, let's say matinee crowd, I wonder how it will come together on screen in a way that is appealing to many people. Yet, now that Brosnan and Streep are on board, I can't fully dismiss the idea. If they're involved, surely it can't end up being that humiliating... right?

I loooove Abba and Mamma Mia, but I'm a little nervous about this movie too. I guess it can't be any worse than the film version of Rent though.

Can't imagine this at all. As a Broadway musical, "Mama Mia" was okay, not the best; as a movie, I'm not sure that it will translate well. But, Meryl Streep did prove that she can sing (sort of) in "Prairie Home Companion," so she could pull it off.

Huh. I love musicals - they're one of my guilty pleasures - but this doesn't appeal to me AT ALL. Maybe because I took my mother to see "Mamma Mia" and I hated it. Plus, this seems like weird casting to me... but who knows? They're both talented, so maybe it'll work.
