Critic Review - Entertainment Spectrum

The film was so exciting and entertaining that I felt swept away. As if I was a wedding attendee, cheering on Sophie to discover herself and for her mother to find happiness.

My comments are not a review; they are a public service.

This movie is like watching all the losers auditioning for American Idol, in a movie, attempting to sing ABBA songs.

Only because my wife rented this piece of **** was I exposed to it. As a married guy, I have tolerated my share of "girl movies" but this one is the limit. It is beyond nails on a scratch board.

As I write, I can hear Pierce Brosnan "singing" an ABBA song. Need I say more? He couldn't be more out of place if he were singing a Hendrix song. Then there's Merly Weep (at 59) embarrassing herself in a role meant for someone half her age with twice her voice.

At least the plot is good. Just kidding! First of all, there isn't enough room for a plot, with all the tunes jam-packed into the film; but that doesn't discourage the writer from trying to match the caliber of the singing.

Final warning: don't eve rent this out of curiosity. It's not even interestingly bad. It's just flat coke in a perky glass.
