Well, I must say.. It was a lot more than what I expected! The beautiful scenery, the cast and the songs. A good mix of tears, laughter and love that will make you feel like you’re a part of the gang and enjoy every bit of this movie. Not one of the cast members let me down. It really is a feel-good movie and it made me want to stand up and sing a long. The ABBA songs are made for dancing and in this movie it reassured me. The singing and the dancing put smiles on people’s faces, and it makes you feel happy and as if all worries are gone. I certainly smiled during the entire movie. The cast members were all wonderful singers and especially the two lead actresses Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried impressed me. A well-made movie that is worth watching more than once!—taken from the link above.
I am a huge sucker for ABBA. There I said it.
I don’t know why but the music is just different and although I don’t listen to it everyday, and haven’t for sometime, when I watched the movie, why I liked it all came rushing back.
The movie is a good watch or so I thought. I caught it on TV one late night and will admit to turning it on only because there was nothing else that interested me. I didn’t regret it….I did regret not watching it sooner.
If you like movies like Greece and so forth—then you may like this one (updated of course). What I liked the best is, its not all singing. There’s a perfect balance I think of talking and then songs. The songs seem to fit what is going on as well and the characters that use them.
Basically, a mother has a hidden past. Instead of crying over her past, she bucks up and survives it. However, that past happens to have something to do with her daughter and how she became pregnant with her.
The daughter is about to get married and invites three men that could possibly be her dad. The drama, the fun, the emotion, and the zany chaos unfolds from there.
The mother, played by Meryl Streep had me thinking of my wilder days…and the age I am now. She made me think of what it would be like if I looked up some of the gals I used to run with—of course Meryl remained close with her pals.
The movie was fun…scenery was beautiful…and was a joy to watch. I will probably watch it again to lol which shocks me because I am usually a Fantasy, Horror, or Paranormal dedicated viewer and this movie is none of those.
