Reader review: Mamma Mia

2012-07-08 14:07

On a Greek island called Kalokairi, 20-year-old bride-to-be Sophie reveals to her bridesmaids that she found her mother's diary and learned she has three possible fathers. She then tells them that she invited all 3 of them to her wedding to find out which one her real father is.

Although Mamma Mia is the highest grossing musical film worldwide it received mixed reviews from critics. I was also very skeptical but loved it from the first minute. 

But I do think you should be a ABBA fan to really enjoy it. This is not a deep movie, the plot is a bit superficial, but I don't think it was suppose to be a deep and dramatic film.

It's a CHICK FLICK. And using ABBA's songs to tell the story was just fun and entertaining. It makes bursting spontaneously into song seem like a perfectly reasonable thing to do

So if you like ABBA ,like people singing and dancing or if you just want to see and hear Pierce Brosnan and Meryl Streep singing and dancing then this a movie you must see.

So just relax and say "Thank you for the music"
