“Mamma Mia!” is an entertaining and forgettable musical that has an interesting idea but a foolish story. ABBA was a successful Swedish pop music group from the early 70’s to the early 80’s, and the screenplay uses the lyrics of some of their most popular songs along the story entwined with dialogs. Therefore, for fans of this group, it is a plus. Another good point is the always wonderful Meryl Streep. Last but not the least, the paradisiacal locations in Greek islands is another great attraction of this feature. Unfortunately the shallow story is too silly and the choreography is very poor and could be better and better. In the balance of pros and cons, my vote is seven.
I would never have watched this because I’m no big ABBA fan. But my daughter talked me into it. She’s a nice kid so I kept an open mind. I have to admit to trying to figure out how they managed to dredge a plot out of a mash-up of those songs. They did and they didn’t. I know this has been a huge hit on Broadway and it has toured for a couple decades. Those companies probably were successful because they were talented Broadway, second team singers and dancers. Which means they were quite good. This film is mostly made up of recognizable, non-singing stars or stars that can sing in the shower but not very well. Anyway, the plot is absolutely lame, the acting is at best tiresome, and the production numbers are not all that creative. I’m giving it a 6 because my daughter might read this at some time.
Okay, so I finally saw what now seems to be my mother’s favorite musical-her being an ABBA fan and all-in both stage and movie versions since she loved this when she saw it on her birthday last year and requested it for a Christmas present from me. Overall, it was indeed enjoyable despite the somewhat shallow characterizations and plot. Of the singing cast, Meryl Streep comes off best and Pierce Brosnan the worst.
In fact, I wished he and Colin Firth had switched roles since Mr. Firth is the much better singer. Of the supporting cast, both Julie Walters and Christine Baranski had good vocal chops throughout while Stellan Skarsgard was adequate the few times he sang. Then there are the young leads Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper who both warbled in fine form. Nice cameos by both former ABBA members Bjorn Ulvaeus and, in the “Dancing Queen” number, Benny Andersson on the piano. Overall, Momma Mia! The Movie was a very enjoyable experience. So to anyone who doesn’t mind a little frothy entertainment, that’s a recommendation. Watch mamma mia 123movies very good!
