Review this title!

Sheer delight

This movie is beautifully filmed, and it seems as if the whole cast is absolutely having a ball. While yes, there is a mystery as to the young bride's real father, the message of inclusion and the importance of honoring love is timeless and wonderful for kids to learn and their parents to remember.

Don't Bother

This movie was classless, tacky, and plain stupid. Good grief.

terrible movie

This is a terrible movie. I loved the live musical, but this was horrible. I could hardly make it to the end.

Fun but be prepared for inevitable questions

This is a fun, energetic, sing along film you'll enjoy over and over again. The big issue is how to expain to your kids why she doesn't know who the father of her child is.

Perfect for older kids but IMO not tweens

The movie is entertaining for adults and young adults but in this day and age the whole issues of promiscuity is waved around like there is nothing wrong with it. Which to me is very disturbing, I don't want my kid and nephews to grow up with a disrespect towards their bodies or their partner's. Having said this the movie is funny and altogether lighthearted, if you can look past the sexual innuendo and bad role models.

You can't resist tapping your foot!

I just barely saw this over at a friends house. With music by ABBA, you can't hold yourself together. Beautiful story. A FEW lines suggest sex ( . . .) but nothing explicit. If you've taken an adolescence class and you watch with a mature person older than you, this would be perfect.

Pretty Trashy!!

My daughter 14 & I thought it was a pretty crude movie. The humor was vulgar,the plot should have been titled how I should have more sense at 50. Yeash!!Every wrong choice awomen could make she did!! It did open a discussion about where slutty behavior will get you. On top of everything else no one could sing!!Save yourself grief & buy an Abba soundtrack instead because it was the only good thing about this movie!!!

Great fun! Audience was singing along!

Starts a bit slow and somewhat hoaky but picks up in fun--by the end the audience was laughing and singing along out loud! I went with a girlfriend and we loved it! Some questionable lines including drug use/alcohol and references to blatant promiscuity but for kids older than 15-16 I think it is still a ton of fun. I have not as of yet been a fan of musical films....this one changed my mind! Meryl Streep is a genuis--every female character in this movie is stellar. Pierce Brosnan maybe shouldn't sing but what the heck--the whole package was great. Take all of your girlfriends and female relatives over the age of 15 to see this will leave feeling happy, joyful and you'll want to sing/dance your way home!!!

I love ABBA and sang all the way through the movie

I enjoyed the movie! I didn't think any of the singers were Awesome or anything. But it was very enjoyable! Not sure if i would take my 13 year old , just because of the content. 3 dads, not knowing which was the real one......that does promote a loose livestyle. other than that enjoyed the music!

Fun For Moms & Daughters 12 & up!!!!

At first my daughter drags me to this movie,Thinking I would be bored No way my daughter and I had such a good time ! If you want to get a little closer to your preteen this is it! Toe tapping,singing have a ball fun.Now I went out and bought my daughter ABBAS greatest hits.Its better than listening to what they have on the radio.Plus you deal with situations with daughters and not so innocent single moms.Go see it you wont be sorry!!

Not a true love story - another trashy Hollywood movie

I have read several reviews on this movie and caution that this is another example of a movie where Hollywood makes serious topics appear fun and exciting. Nudity and sexual crude humor. Why would any decent woman want to see this movie? Why would any gentleman agree to take a date to this movie? Save your money and do something positive and uplifting.
