I happened to introduce our sneak preview of the Movie MAMMA MIA the other night at the new WALDEN GALLERIA Cinemas and stayed to watch the movie with my son.
After thinking there would be plenty of seats to pick from (it didn't look from the beginning that the theater would be full) after completing our giveaways down in front of the screen I was told by the Manager the entire preview was sold-out and she scrambled for us to get 2 seats right in the FRONT ROW. If you've ever sat in the front-row for a movie (even though the new Galleria Cinemas seats are as comfortable as any in the world) you need a neck re-alignment about half way through the movie and it's like watching the old cartoon where all you could see is Porky Pig's FEET running past you...I don't recommend it! At the end of the flick I told my Son I just didn't GET IT, even though great performances by Meryl Streep and company, and I didn't feel good about blogging about it until the reviews came out! Well, after reading an early review from a newspaper in NEW ZEALAND I think they summed it up perfectly..."most MEN would give it a 2 (out of 10 Stars) and most WOMEN would give it a 9!" Meryl Streep, while on with DAVID LETTERMAN the other night, had a timely comment about the Movie "we would have to be up against BATMAN (The Dark Knight) this weekend!"
