"Meryl Streep can do anything: sing, dance, do splits, act her heart out. That (almost) saves this clumsy, overwrought film version of the Abba musical that's been running on stages from Broadway to Barcelona since 1999"
"The three formidable women responsible for the show... let the magic slip through their fingers on the treacherous rip from stage to screen."
(referring to producer Judy Craymer, writer Catherine Johnson and director Phyllida Lloyd)
"What does work, and wonderfully, is the friendship among Streep and her two BFFs ... When [they] share the screen, Mamma Mia! comes alive and earns its exclamation point."
2/5 Stars - Peter Travers
Metascore ~ 51/100
"The good-natured silliness is contagious. When Streep runs singing through a Greek village, its like a spirited homage to "The Sound of Music"
~ USA Today - 75
"I COULD do without "Dancing Queen" stuck in my head, but that will unstick soon enough, and with any luck so too will the memory of Streep noodling on an air guitar"
~Austin Chronicle - 50
Overall Rating 54%
"The legal definition of torture has been much aired in recent years, and I take Mamma Mia! to be a useful contribution to that debate."
~ The New Yorker - Anthony Lane
"Cheese -- but what wonderful salty, sinfully satisfying cheese it is."
~ Toronto Star - Linda Barnard
