Film: Mamma Mia!

Opened: July 18, 2008

Directed by: Phyllida Lloyd

Starring: Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Dominic Cooper, Julie Walters & Christine Baranski

All the fun of the hit Broadway musical comes to the big screen with an all-star cast.

Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is getting married and wants nothing more than her father to walk her down the aisle. After scouring through her mother’s (Meryl Streep) diary, she finds out there are three possibilities: Sam (Pierce Brosnan), Bill (Stellan Skarsgård) and Harry (Colin Firth). Now she just has to determine which is her actual father.

The storyline is set to ABBA’s best music and is fun from start to finish. Seyfried and Dominic Cooper bring a young energy to the film and are the picture-perfect couple. Streep continues to prove how talented she is with vocal chops that take on fun songs like “Mamma Mia” along with ballads like “The Winner Takes it All.”

Final say: You’ll sing and dance the whole time. ★★★★★
