Take a trip down the aisle you'll never forget
Set on an idyllic Greek island, the plot serves as a background for a wealth of ABBA hit songs. Donna, an independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on the island is about to let go of Sophie, the spirited young daughter she's raised alone. But Sophie has secretly invited three of her mother's ex-lovers in the hopes of finding her father.

Take a chance... It's surprisingly good!

I hated this film the first time I saw it. I was a 15 year old, joy-hating teenager and hated any kind of cheesiness and singing, especially when sitting next to my mother unable to escape.

This time round, I feel more grown-up and capable of leaving that cynical teenager behind. But by God was it difficult.

I enjoy the general premise of the film but the style of it all, nah. What grates most is the over-acting, as if they just filmed the stageshow. It was cringing and the fact they seemed to ADR all the dialogue just jarred me.

Don't get me wrong, it's fun but it certainly isn't a good film.

Total chick flick and the only good things in it are ABBA's hit songs IMHO!
