MAMMA MIA! (2008)
It’s another musical movie. Thiz movie is a tribute to the 1970s famous disco sensation, ABBA. It’s a simple story about a girl who wishes his father presence on her wedding day. The problem is she doesn’t actually know who her father is. She has been raised by her mother alone. According to her mother diary, there are three possibilities that are represented with three persons that could be her father. The things become complicated when she finally decides to invite them all. You just can’t imagine what will happen next. The movie is starred by a lot of senior Actors such as Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Colin Firth. Apparently, the surprise comes from a promising rising Amanda Seyfried. She delivers her role with easy-going and lovable character. The ABBA’s hits like “Honey”, “Dancing Queen” and “Mamma Mia!” are performed well by the Actors and Actresses themselves. In my opinion, the songs are successfully refreshed. On top of that, I think today's musical movies become more acceptable. It begins to sound familiar because the music is more likely to base on pop rock trends. It’s very different from musical movies that made from 1950-1960s which were mostly based on classic orchestra. The movie is surprisingly directed by first-time Director Phyllida Llyod. In overall, the movie is so fresh and full of joys. Before I went to watch thiz movie, I thought it would be another teen movie. But after I have seen it, I come to the conclusion that thiz movie is simply enjoyable and fun for all ages.
