Mamma Mia!

Take a trip down the aisle you'll never forget


Mamma Mia!
Based on the smash stage musical, itself drawing inspiration from Swedish supergroup ABBA's string of chart toppers. Set on a Greek island, a young woman is about to marry. She was raised by her mother, and has never known her father. One day, she discovers an old diary of her mother's, and sees three likely dad candidates in the pages. So she invites them all to her wedding, figuring she will recognise Dad when she sees him. Mom is unaware of this plan and is taken by surprise. Many romantic decisions will be made in the next few days...

110 minutes.

Roger Ebert quote iconThis movie wasn't made for me. It was made for the people who will love it, of which there may be a multitude.

eye Weekly
Chandler Levack quote iconIt’s a tour-de-force performance on par with The Devil Wears Prada, humanizing pop culture with pop itself.
5
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconMamma 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.
15
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconWhen 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.
10
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconFleetingly 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 quote iconThis 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.
