Mamma Mia! (2008)
Critic Consensus: 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.

Critic Reviews for Mamma Mia!
A sage once advised being wary of movies in which the people on screen are having more fun than the people in the audience. Mamma mia, was that good advice.
Like a big gay Terminator, Mamma Mia! will track down your cynicism and blast it into smithereens: it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you're having fun.
It would be easy to underrate the deceptively effortless master acting class that Meryl Streep puts on here.
Yeah, it's all a little bit on the camp side. It's a musical based on the songs of ABBA. A little bit camp is probably the height of restraint.
Audience Reviews for Mamma Mia!
I don't wanna talk... about the things I've gone through... watching this trashy, tacky and poorly directed ABBA musical where nearly no one can sing decently - especially Pierce Brosnan, who sounds like a dog barking -, making me wonder what is the point.
Disgusting, awkward and improbable. I guess it captures Abba perfectly...except the band demonstrated better acting abilities in their stage performances. This film was true dreck.
Movie based on the musical stage production. A new bride to be invites three men to her wedding - all potentially her father to give her away but who is her dad? ABBA songs are woven throughout the story. You don't know how it fits in but some how it does. Great cast and brilliant music. Some can sing better than others though! Funny and entertaining. Beautiful setting. Feel good Summer movie.
