Mamma MiaUniversal Studios has a very black sense of humor. They’re saying they will release Mamma Mia! in a sing-along version. It’s a joke right? A jest? A wacky April Fools joke in August?

Nope. It’s real. As real as the money that Mamma Mia! is raking in.

It’s time for the shower singers of the world to rejoice! They can come out of the shower and into the movie theater to sing to their heart’s content. They can duet with Pierce, Meryl, Stellan, Colin, Christine, Amanda, Julie and the Mamma Mia! chorus of singers.

Can you have a duet with a theater filled with Mamma Mia/ABBA fans? Wouldn’t that be more like a choir out of a Tim Burton film?

Don’t worry about knowing the words. Not that the words couldn’t be substituted with gibberish. There will be subtitles with the lyrics of all those old ABBA songs. ABBA songs that have been turned into a film that to me should be considered a method of torture under the Geneva Convention.

Come on! Who needs water boarding when you can strap someone into a seat and subject them to the dulcet tones of Pierce Brosnan and company as they sing those delightful songs that get into your brain like an alien parasite.

Doesn’t the CIA get it? ABBA is the secret weapon against terror!
Stop with all of that namby pamby, wimpy, wussy, stuff like pouring water up someones nose, or sleep deprivation. It would take less than one viewing of Mamma Mia! and the toughest terrorist would crack like a walnut in a Phantom of the Opera nut cracker.

The sing-along edition of Mamma Mia! opens on August 29. Personally, I’d like to see a sing-along edition of Sweeney Todd. Now that would be something!

What movie would you like turned into a Sing-Along? Alien? Knocked Up? Atonement?
