Who picks the clips...

that make the whole world sing?

I have now twice seen the "highlight" of Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan singing SOS in the film Mamma Mia, and all I can say is, if that's the best Brosnan moment in the movie, it should have been hidden.

We've all seen performers in movie musicals who were hired for their star power, not their musical talents, but Rex Harrison could at least talk his way through in a musical way. Brosnan yells out the two lines I've seen through clenched teeth in what may be an attempt at a Joe Cocker impression, but comes off as a man with an excruciating medical problem.

Is the point of showing this clip simply to prove Brosnan's in the movie, lest his fans think the posters are lying?
