Streep heads up the cast of what has to be the summer's greatest musical romp,
Mamma Mia, a tribute to the songs of disco era sensation ABBA. Having taken
Broadway by storm, the movie version was the next logical step.
How do you turn the hit songs of ABBA into a cohesive story? You have a
wedding where the bride doesn't know which of three possible men is her father,
you have a mother who was the lead singer in a music group in her younger years,
you set the whole thing up on a beautiful small island in Greece and you just go
Mia was completely fun in a major way. It wasn't just the music that made the

But the real show stealer was hunky newcomer Dominic Cooper in the role

The setting of the movie is a breathtaking Greek Isle and the crystal

When three possible fathers show up to walk the bride down the aisle the
laughs just keep coming.
But the real magic is in the music. While all of the music is great, there
are three songs with a huge cast of people from the village that really get you.
At the end of the movie, the audience stayed in their seats and watched the
credits role by listening to more ABBA hits. When Waterloo started playing the
audience clapped along.
