This film is great if you’ve already had the talk with your girls. Nothing too explicit visually, but the whole premise of the movie is that the bride to be wants to know which of the men that her mother slept with years ago is her father.

So much fun!!!

A really fun movie! Some sexual stuff hinted at in the lyrics of songs but it’s really not that bad. The songs are amazing thanks to ABBA and it’s probably one of the best movies ever so watch it.
