Dead Xer Vs. Live Boomer: Dark Knight’s Ledger Vs. Mamma Mia’s Streep — 8 Comments

  1. I read a review that said Streep was 20 years too old for the part. She’s the same age as I am and I have a 23 year old daughter. Just how old is the kid supposed to be in the musical? My guess is that the reviewer was in his early 20’s and conceived by a 16 year old mother. If Streep can jump on a bed/trampoline and touch her toes while her legs are straight out, the reviewer is highly underestimating us old moms.

    He(the reviewer) did say to ignore Streep’s age and enjoy her acting and musical ability.

  2. Correction: Streep is six months older than I am. She was once a cheerleader, so her jumping prowess is much greater than mine. Besides, we have a rule in our house: no jumping on the beds. So sorry, there will be no bed-jumping posts. I have other skills.

  3. I like Meryl Streep well enough, but I like Heath Ledger much better. The fact that he is (was) so deliciously fuckable helps, although I doubt he looks fuckable as the Joker. Unless you’re, like, seriously warped.

    I still say Mamma Mia is too gay. Even too gay for girls. Although I do have a soft spot for ABBA and try like hell to fight it. (My ABBA love is based on Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, as you know.)

    Me? I’m not going to see either one. It’s been several years since I’ve seen a movie that didn’t involve either Harry Potter or Pixar.

  4. I loved Mamma Mia! Meryl was wonderful – as far as being a cheerleader, so was I but I have no jumping prowess anymore; afraid I’ll break something.

    Pierce Brosnin was NOT good! I may go see it again tomorrow afternoon and when he’s “singing”, I’ll close my eyes and pretend it’s Tom Selleck or even Michael Jordan!
