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.

After this, after "Movin' Out" (based on the deplorable songbook of one Willliam Joel), it's not even satire to suggest that the next big thing will be a musical inspired by the oeuvre of Howard Jones

...certain sequences are inherently far more affecting and engaging than others.

More fluff like "Mamma Mia!" than "Made of Honor" would make mid-year moviegoing a happier experience.

As for Meryl Streep, you sense that she's thinking what you're thinking: That she can't actually be in this movie.

The story is ... urh. No film has ever had a more irrelevant story.

Even the most exuberant musical numbers feel either flat or forced.

The infectious, decades-old ABBA songs on which the film is anchored are the only thing keeping it afloat.

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.

Brosnan, Firth and Skarsgard have a great time playing the bimbos who may be Sophie's dad.

I believe that genealogy would prove "director" Phyllida Lloyd a descendant of Ed Wood himself.

A chintzy valentine to the world-shaking ebullience of one's own flimsily "empowered" friendships and one's most offhanded and tarted-up whims.

Unfortunately, Streep and her ancient co-stars create pure torture whenever on screen together. This is the Catwoman of movie musicals
