The songs and the way everyone seemed to have so much fun in the movie just made me want to sing along and break out dancing too a lot of times during the movie. Love Amanda Seyfreid :)

abba muziq iz legendary from da 70-80's n i lizten 2 them,luv them n da muzical waz even grater,cuz of da grate cast n da passion in da muziq in da scencez

Abba's songs are great, the scenery is enticing. Otherwise?
Well, it was obvious the cast had a lot of fun making this film, but I did not have a lot of fun watching it - I love Julie Walters, and acknowledge that Meryl Streep is an accomplished actress, but I won't be recommending this to anyone.
I thought it was a bit too silly, considering the dilemma around which the comedy is set, almost as though the cast were having such a ball they didn't really care if we liked it or not. As another reviewer commented, watch to the very end, which is the best bit.

I love Abba and the stage version of this movie, but did not like this movie at all. I think they needed younger actors. Would definitely not watch again.

First, let me preface this by saying that I enjoy Abba's music. This is basically a group of Abba songs loosely tied together with a charming storyline. Despite its relatively weak storyline, the movie is thoroughly enjoyable. I don't remember the last time I saw a movie where the actors seemed to really enjoy themselves. Kudos to the established actors for singing their songs (vs. lip synching) - particularly gorgeous Pierce Brosnan, who doesn't have the most lyrical of voices. That takes courage. By the same token, I was impressed by the musical voices of Meryl Streep and Colin Firth. The vocal talents of young Amanda Siegfried are impressive. Of course scenes of the beautiful Adriatic just add to the enjoyment, as does seeing the always handsome Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan in the same film. So, if you want an uncomplicated movie that just leaves you feeling good - maybe singing a few Abba songs - rent this movie.

This is my FEEL GOOD movie... when I feel like crud I play this and am 100% better (not sure if it is because I can sing better than Colin Firth, lol)
Love Christine Baranski's character!
