3 stars out of 4 -- "[Streep's] chemistry with co-star Pierce Brosnan is palpable. Streep and the rest of the cast appear to be having the time of their lives."
"Playful exuberance is the order of the day....['Waterloo'] lures you into a glorious world of upbeat melodies, glitter, sequins and flares, and leaves you dancing out of the cinema."
3 stars out of 5 -- "There's a joyous 'Dancing Queen'....It's full of super troupers and smiles."
"Set on a stunning Grecian isle, MAMMA MIA! is a frenzied farce....Get ready to dust off those old ABBA discs on vinyl. Because afterwards, you'll want to keep this party going..."
Major hijinks and confusion ensues, all amidst the utterly romance scenery, and the rather irresistible, swelling love ballads. Streep has a lovely singing voice, and to watch her throw herself into this whimsical role is truly a delight. She looks like she is having a ball, and it is hard not to shimmy along with her. Baranski reliably delivers an over-the-top showstopper, and Brosnan's tender singing voice makes his character all the more touching. The film strives to be a jubilant celebration of mother/daughter relationships and the love between good friends, and no matter how cheesy some may find Abba, it is hard to resist its many charms.

I love this movie, It makes me so uplifted every time I watch it. Thought I was just getting movie, but much to my surprise it was a whole set. It has a 2nd DVD with extras from the move. A CD with the songs and even a book about the movie. Love this site. It cost so little and the shipping was so fast.
