The Young Reporters: Women will find ‘Mamma Mia!’ enjoyableby Rachael Weinstein on Aug. 12, 2008, under Family
Do you like singing? Do you like dancing? Do you like musicals with really catchy tunes?
If you answered yes to all of the above, you should go see “Mamma Mia!” “Mamma Mia!” started as a Broadway musical and is a Las Vegas show and now it’s a wonderful movie.
The main character, Sophie, is played by Amanda Seyfried. Although her name isn’t too famous now, it will be soon. She’s highly talented and has an amazing voice.
Another amazing character is Donna, Sophie’s mom, played by Academy Award-winner Meryl Streep. Streep also does a great job in the movie.
“Mamma Mia!” is about 20-year-old Sophie, who’s about to get married. But she doesn’t have a father. Then one day, she finds three possible guys who could be her father. So she secretly sends them wedding invitations.
The first possible father is Sam, played by former James Bond actor, Pierce Brosnan. He’s an amazing actor, but his voice isn’t the best part about his character. His character is lovable.
The second possible father is Bill, played by Stellan Skarsgård, who also doesn’t have the best singing voice. Sam is a sweet and sensible guy.
The last possible father is Harry, who’s played by Colin Firth, who has the best singing voice of the three. Harry is a rocker dude who never loved any women after Donna.
This film may be more of a chick flick – my mom and I loved it, but my brother hated it.
