Mamma Mia - how can you resist it?

When serious actors with serious reputations sing Abba songs on a beach they deserve the benefit of the doubt.
If serious film watchers get seriously shirty about a former James Bond's vocal range they deserve nothing but contempt.
Mamma Mia is a magnificent romp. Silly story, great songs, beautiful scenery, and a happy ending.
If any of that puts you off don't go. Stay at home and amuse yourself with your intellectual wit.
Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Julie Walters and the enthusiastic cast hit exactly the right note throughout.
A joy from start to finish.
