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.

...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.

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

This is entertainment, not a movie. And as entertainment goes, Mamma Mia! belts it out of the park.

Mamma Mia! has an exclamation in its title for a reason: it just wants to shout out its sense of fun. The film is buoyantly unpretentious and proclaims at the top of its voice, "Take me as I am."

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.

The music is as great now as it was 30 years ago, a true testament to ABBA's continued popularity.

I tapped my foot, I smiled, and I found myself undeniably amused. If that's the kind of experience you're looking for, and if you dig ABBA, this crazy, sloppy, mixed-up movie might just be for you.

The big-screen Mamma Mia! rises above its flaws through an A-list leading lady and, like its stage-musical predecessor, skillful exploitation of the both fun and pathos in Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus' undeniable music.
