Meryl Streep leads an all-star cast in the feature-film adaptation of the beloved musical that has been seen by more than 30 million people in 160 cities and 8 languages around the world.

Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper join Streep in Mamma Mia - a celebration of a mother, a daughter and three possible fathers!

An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna (Meryl Streep) is about to let go of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), the spirited daughter she's raised alone. For Sophie's wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends - practical and no-nonsense Rosie (Julie Walters) and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya (Christine Baranski) - from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own...

On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna's past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.

You like Abba? You really like Abba? You like Abba enough to listen to cover versions by people who can't sing? You sure? Do you mind if the film is directed by someone with no technical competence, let alone style? Really? Then this is the film for you.

As the movie version of the stage adaptation of The Producers should have shown, you can't take a stage play and put it on the big screen with no changes. The broad gestures and surreal moments that work on stage just come across as plain wrong in the cinema - and on DVD it's even worse.

To be fair, some of the routines are performed well - but they are merely curios compared to the flawless originals. They don't even try to do anything novel with the songs, these aren't covers - this is karaoke.

And it apears this is all people want from this film, after all it comes with a sing-a-long option. As something weird to put on at a party whilst drunk then it serves its purpose, but as a film no-one but the most hysterical Streep / Abba obsessive could give this more than 2.5/5.

 High movie standered so..

I have a high movie standered so i will not give this any thing higer then 1.

Absolutly no plot what so ever, i feel it was a bit of an excuse to just have abba songs and have abba fans claim it to be happy because you can sing the songs? But this doesnt mean it deserves 5 stars!!!

This is a film review not an abba review!

I will never ever watch again, i got a headache and the dancing was very questionable!

I didnt like the way the movie is used for an advert for abba songs, i love the way since this has been released an abba singstar etc etc has been released!! :0

1 Star.

 disappointing and boring

| | See all dorayme's reviews (1)

I was so looking forward to this musical, but found it to be boring in the extreme, having a weak plot and very poor singing when compared to the 'Real McCoy'
The film was carried along by the actors squealing and screaming their way through.
By the halfway mark I was clock watching and waiting with anticipation for the film to finish.

 Cheesy

The most cheesy and cringey film i have ever seen. If your into that fine, but i dont see what the hype is about.

 This tragic movie should never have been made

This movie is probably the most disgustingly twee, putrid tripe i've ever seen in my life, After 20 minutes i just wanted to be sick, but i stuck with it until the end and as i suspected, it got worse and worse and worse. I am a big fan of Meryl Streep and Julie Walters but in this movie i discovered that they can't act at all.
