Rating: PG-13, for some sex related material
Grade: C

Donna, an independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, is about to let go of Sophie, the spirited daughter she's raised alone. For Sophie's wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends--practical and no-nonsense Rosie and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tonya--from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own. On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna's past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.
I swear, I think I'm the only person on the face of this earth, besides my nieces Chloe and Chelsea who didn't fall in love with this movie. First of all, I was really digging when the women were singing the Abba songs but once Pierce Bronson aka James Bond started singing the songs, we were torn between laughter and embarrassment for him.

The storyline itself was a nice, fun storyline for a movie and I enjoyed the setting. I thought the main character, Sophie was beautiful and she had a great voice. I laughed through out the movie but I still wasn't blown away or anything, but I'd recommend this movie to those who love musicals, it's not my favorite but it will probably be someone elses, so definitely check it out.

So 007 can't sing? I was wondering about that. I'll probably netflix it.

It's not that he can't sing, he's just singing non manly songs and he's not the best singer but he's better than frickin' Chloe and Chelsea..haha.
