What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Mamma Mia is a 2008 movie inspired by the musical inspired by the music of Swedish 1970s hit-makers ABBA. This lightweight, sun-kissed musical will likely appeal to the teen girls (and their moms) who make up much of the fan base of the Broadway musical it's based on. Language is quite tame overall ("ass," "bitch," UK terms such as "bollocks" and "bugger"), but sexual innuendoes do fly -- there are plenty in the ABBA song lyrics alone -- and one of the main characters is a woman who gets pregnant but doesn't know who her baby's father is. A sex toy is seen briefly during a dance sequence. Expect a quick kiss between two men; one key character turns out to be gay. There's also a brief, nonsexual glimpse of a man's bare butt and a fair amount of drinking, but it's mostly in the context of everyone having fun on a Greek island, and it's all pretty social in nature. Characters also drink throughout and often appear to be drunk. Expect references to marijuana.
