20-years old Sophie was about to get married to her forever lover and when she discovers three potential father of her own through her mothers' diary, she invited all three of them to her wedding on their little island without her mother, Donna knowing. Sophie hope that she would be able to recognized her father right away but it was proven rather difficult. Donna on the other hand, had invited her bestfriends cum back-up vocalists, Rosie and Tanya in their little group, Donna and the Dynamos. 


I am still on my musical theme movies so we could not forget this movie, right? I first watched this movie when I was in primary school so I don't remember much except that I had so much fun.

And yes, once again, I had so much fun! I was a little tired and quite unmotivated to do anything and watching this definitely lift up my spirit and mood! Even though the scenes were pretty much filled with songs and the dialogues between characters are not much there, I still am enjoying the plot.

Even though I am not very familiar with ABBA, I still find myself singing along, to my surprise! What I could is that their songs are evergreen and could be enjoyed by all ages.  As the story had quite a subtle mention of sex-related, I think that it is not family-oriented and hence the young audience need to be observed. Or maybe they could not pick it up. Idk. I don't have any children.

The chemistry between actors are so so nice! I love how I could feel Donna's attraction towards Sam, and Sam to her, even after 20 years. She was kinda cool with Bill and Harry but not Sam. And and Donna the Dynamos, what could I comment on? They had such a cute friendship and I really love it! Also Sophie and Donna, I got really teary when they were preparing for her wedding ceremony together and the song definitely help building my tears. 

All in all, I enjoyed this movie so so much as I think many are. Oh, the scenery there on the island were so so gorgeous!
