The Hollywood Reporter

By Ray Bennett
It's a delightful piece of filmmaking with a marvelous cast topped by Meryl Streep in one of her smartest and most entertaining performances ever.

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
The movie takes the ABBA jukebox musical that ate London, and is still eating Broadway, and turns it into a surprisingly sensuous experience.

Mamma Mia! is fun, the music's terrific and the cast is appealing.

The good-natured silliness is contagious. When Streep runs singing through a Greek village, it's like a spirited homage to "The Sound of Music."

Yes, of course this is fairly old-fashioned entertainment, but it's really, really entertaining.

By Peter Travers
Meryl Streep can do anything: sing, dance, do splits, act her heart out. She (almost) saves this clumsy, overwrought film version of the Abba musical that's been running on stages from Broadway to Barcelona since 1999.
