Mamma Mia! Synopsis


Meryl Streep leads an all-star cast in the feature-film adaptation of the beloved musical that has been seen by more than 30 million people in 160 cities and 8 languages around the world. Bringing the timeless lyrics and melodies of iconic super group ABBA to movie audiences, Summer 2008 is the season for Mamma Mia!

An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna (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.

Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA's songs from "Dancing Queen" and "S.O.S." to "Money, Money, Money" and "Take a Chance on Me," Mamma Mia! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.

I pulled this video up earlier today for this article and I'm still not really over it. When I watched this movie I definitely didn't realize it'd be the enormous worldwide hit it became, and I idly wondered about the career prospects for everyone who participated in something so cheesy. I figured all the adult stars like Meryl Streep and Colin Firth would turn out just fine-- though who would have guessed Firth would have an Oscar just two years later?-- but genuinely wondered about the young stars Amanda Seyfried and especially Dominic Cooper. Being a girl Seyfried could pretty easily overcome flouncing around in sequins and a modest one-piece bathing suit, but Cooper seemed doomed to be remembered in his hot-pink jumpsuit any time he tried to play a serious romantic or action lead role. I was totally wrong, of course-- he's in Captain America and The Devil's Double and seemingly everywhere else-- and I'm glad. But seriously, this video is almost too embarrassing to look at, and I don't care how much money everyone made while doing it. Relive the horror with me.

Of course, Firth is just an actor with no role in the producing process, and it's unclear how his character from the film would even fit into a sequel. But given how many other jukebox musicals there have been, it's entirely possible to see another singer or group lending themselves
