Mamma Mia! ★★★½

I'm a bit biased here because I unapologetically love ABBA. Like, put on any one of their songs and catch me bopping to it.

This movie uses ABBA songs as its backdrop in a story about a young woman trying to find out who her dad is. While the story itself is nothing special, it's the songs and musical numbers that are the stars of this film. Each number was well choreographed, and the songs more or less fit where the story was going.

Definitely the biggest flaw of this film was some of the singing, mostly by the male actors. Nothing could've prepared me for some of Pierce Brosnan's horrible singing. The majority of it is fine, but there are some singing performances that stick out like a sore thumb.

Aside from that, there's nothing more to this film. It's just a fun film that I would recommend if you have some time to kill, or if you are like me and love ABBA.
