I adore ABBA

When I start to watch " Mamma Mia ",I have no particularly high expectations,but I`m glad that I did! As soon as the first song started I was loving it! The actors may not be that great at singing but does it matter?! They are actors after all and this is not the west end! The actors play the parts really well and make fun of themselves at the same time. The story line is fun and has laughs for all ages. Julie Waters is her fantastic self in it,and Meryl Streep plays the mother really well. The dance scenes are great and well put together.

Basically, Mamma Mia is a superb musical (I never though that before) that doesn't take itself too seriously. If you're just a little bit crazy and want to have a good laugh, if you love ABBA, want to see Meryl Streep like you've never seen her before or if you simply have a secret crush on Colin Firth and/or Pierce Brosnan (his singing was nothing short of hilarious), you will LOVE this movie.
