Meryl Streep, Julie Walters, Christine Baranski, Amanda Seyfriend, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgard, Dominic Cooper
Streep plays Donna who lives on a Greek Island. Her daughter is getting married. The daughter invites three of Donna’s old boyfriends to the island for the wedding in the hope that she will know which one is her dad.
That’s it, that’s the plot – then there’s all this singing and dancing, culminating in a romantic ending for both mother and daughter.
You’d think seeing Colin Firth sing, or dance shirtless in jets of water would make me love this movie. But I don’t. I fact, I don’t like it at all, despite how much I admire Meryl Streep. I don’t know what it is, perhaps I’m no fan of a musical – it messes with a good rom com.
