Roger Ebert This movie wasn't made for me. It was made for the people who will love it, of which there may be a multitude.
Chandler Levack It’s a tour-de-force performance on par with The Devil Wears Prada, humanizing pop culture with pop itself.
James Berardinelli Mamma Mia! is relentlessly cheerful and unapologetically campy, and will find its strongest (and perhaps only) adherents among the group that looks back fondly on ABBA.
Peter Travers When Streep, Walters and Baranski share the screen, Mamma Mia! comes alive and earns its exclamation point. The rest is forced gaiety pushed to the breaking point.
C. Fuchs Fleetingly entertaining but suffering from the replacement of real song and dance people with Hollywood stars (some of whom couldn't sing themselves out of a corner) and an uneven and blasé directorial approach
Tomatometer This jukebox musical is full of fluffy fun but rough singing voices and a campy tone might not make you feel like ''You Can Dance'' the whole 90 minutes.
