Mamma Mia! 

Inspired by the music of ’70s Swedish pop group ABBA, Mamma Mia! features an all-star cast in this film adaptation of the Broadway musical phenomenon. Donna (Meryl Streep) is a single mother to 20 year-old Sophie (Mean Girls’ Amanda Seyfried), who runs a villa on a picturesque Greek island. When young Sophie decides to get married, she also secretly decides to invite her father to the wedding. There’s only one problem: three men (Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgard) are potentially the baby’s daddy, and they all arrive at the island unbeknownst to Donna. Add Donna’s two kooky, lifelong friends and fellow members of Donna and the Dynamos (Julie Walters and Christine Baranski) to the mix and you have one hell of a celebration. Mamma Mia! is a fun, campy guilty pleasure about mothers and daughters, old friends and revived flames. ***
