It's not fun or carefree, it's just tacky - lost in a sea of clichés and contrivances that somehow makes even its fantastic music lose its appeal.

It's impossible not to go along with the feeling when such a strangely life-affirming song as Dancing Queen is blasted in your ears.

Mamma Mia has been made with the most delicious, joyful abandon and all it asks is that you joyfully and deliciously abandon yourself to it and don't make too many observations.

Inventive song-and-dance numbers, with a Greek chorus of island residents, and hilarious pratfalls ensue as the wedding preparations go on amid the lighthearted family drama.

In the (slightly altered) words of ABBA, you can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life at Mamma Mia!

Like a big gay Terminator, Mamma Mia! will track down your cynicism and blast it into smithereens: it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you're having fun.

It would be easy to underrate the deceptively effortless master acting class that Meryl Streep puts on here.

Yeah, it's all a little bit on the camp side. It's a musical based on the songs of ABBA. A little bit camp is probably the height of restraint.

A mostly ghastly spectacle

After this, after "Movin' Out" (based on the deplorable songbook of one Willliam Joel), it's not even satire to suggest that the next big thing will be a musical inspired by the oeuvre of Howard Jones

...certain sequences are inherently far more affecting and engaging than others.

More fluff like "Mamma Mia!" than "Made of Honor" would make mid-year moviegoing a happier experience.

As for Meryl Streep, you sense that she's thinking what you're thinking: That she can't actually be in this movie.

The story is ... urh. No film has ever had a more irrelevant story.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Even the most exuberant musical numbers feel either flat or forced.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 18, 2008
The infectious, decades-old ABBA songs on which the film is anchored are the only thing keeping it afloat.

A sage once advised being wary of movies in which the people on screen are having more fun than the people in the audience. Mamma mia, was that good advice.

Brosnan, Firth and Skarsgard have a great time playing the bimbos who may be Sophie's dad.

I believe that genealogy would prove "director" Phyllida Lloyd a descendant of Ed Wood himself.
