THERE'S SOMETHING DEEPLY DISTURBING...:

Abba`s `Mamma Mia!` Is UK`s Best Ever Selling DVD (Javno, 1/01/09)

The film of the Abba-themed musical "Mamma Mia!" has become the biggest ever selling DVD in Britain and the first movie disc to top five million sales, the Official Charts Company said on Thursday.

The DVD success crowns the movie's lucrative run at the box office, where it earned more than 69 million pounds to be one Britain's highest ever grossing films.

The movie attracted an enthusiastic older female audience for its feel-good recreations of Abba classics belted out by Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Julie Walters.


...about walking into a room where The Wife, 9-year old Daughter and 6-year old Younger Son are howling, "Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight!"
