Mamma Mia!

I just watched "Mamma Mia!" for the first time, and I thought it was wonderful. It won't go down in history as one of the greatest films of all time, but it was so much fun just to watch. I kept getting distracted by thinking about how much fun the cast seemed to be having, and what it must have been like to spend a few weeks on a tropical island singing and dancing like that.

And I *heart* Donna, Meryl Streep's character: an independent, can-do, practical woman who can still put on outrageous ABBA-like outfits and sing, and have fun and fall in love again. I haven't had many female role models in my life (and honestly, pretty much all of them have been fictional) -- but by the end of the movie I realized that I want to be like her: a responsible grown-up and a terrific mom who still can laugh and have fun and be fabulous.
