An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna (Meryl Streep) is about to let go of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), the spirited daughter she's raised alone. For Sophie's wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends - practical and no-nonsense Rosie (Julie Walters) and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya (Christine Baranski) - from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own...
On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna's past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.

If you read all of my reviews youll see that musicals always score highly in my ratings. I suppose some people would argue that all musicals are chick-flicks to some extent but Mamma Mia deifintely falls more into the girls film category than most.
The story of single mother Donna, bringing up beautiful daughter Sophie on a remote Greek island certainly shows solidarity with the female viewers. Even so, this excellent movie appeals to all, and, as it is set to an ABBA soundtrack, could not possibly fail to impress. And impress it did. Mamma Mia is the third highest grossing musical film of all time after Grease at number 1 and Chicago at number 2. I bet Pierce Brosnan never thought he would be a principal character in a movie that achieved that accolade!
