Mamma Mia

Saturday SEPTEMBER 16th

Sophie (Seyfried) invites three men (Brosnan, Firth, Skarsgard) who could be her father to her wedding in Greece, unbeknownst to her single mother Donna (Streep). Shock reunions, confusions and Abba’'s greatest hits ensue.

Mamma Mia!’ is a summer movie that’s as camp as Christmas and as enjoyable as a pantomime.

Cute, clean, camp fun, full of sunshine and toe tappers.

Mamma Mia has played 170 cities in eight languages and been seen by over 30 million people, purely down to the music.

Songs of innocent vitality and mature heartbreak from the classic Abba catalogue; Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus’s tunes inspired and propel a charming, energetic little tale that is basically a hen party with bells on.

Since the greatest actress of her generation can also sing, Meryl Streep was an obvious shoo-in when the show’s creators got the backing to make the movie version. Streep and her comedic bosom buddies, Julie Walters and Christine Baranski, make a mighty sweet rumpus as the aging ex rock chicks.

This film is pure danceable joy from top to bottom of any given sequin suit. The dance numbers include a joyous ‘Dancing Queen’, which sees Streep and gal pals drawing village women down to the sea. ‘Lay All Your Love On Me’ hilariously features a beach boy chorus line stomping their stuff in flippers. Mamma Mia is full of super troupers and smiles.

Don’t leave during the credits or you’ll miss the encore, with the stars in 70s satin and platform boots giving ‘Waterloo’ plenty of welly.

Cute, clean, camp fun, full of sunshine and toe tappers, guaranteed to put grins pretty much everyone.
