Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sage once advised being wary of movies in which the people on screen are having more fun than the people in the audience. Mamma mia, was that good advice."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"The movie's spirit is somewhere between High School Musical and Hedwig and the Angry Inch; it's at once dorkily wholesome and proudly slutty."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"Like a big gay Terminator, Mamma Mia! will track down your cynicism and blast it into smithereens: it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you're having fun."
‑ Ali Gray,
"A mostly ghastly spectacle"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"...certain sequences are inherently far more affecting and engaging than others."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The legal definition of torture has been much aired in recent years, and I take Mamma Mia! to be a useful contribution to that debate."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"If you're invited, you might as well enjoy yourself. Just don't say I didn't warn you. And don't you dare say I hate ABBA."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"It would be easy to underrate the deceptively effortless master acting class that Meryl Streep puts on here."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Mnoge od scena su nadrealno %u0161a%u0161ave"
‑ Dragan Antulov,
"More fluff like "Mamma Mia!" than "Made of Honor" would make mid-year moviegoing a happier experience."
‑ Rory L. Aronsky, Film Threat
"A lot of fun."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Streep certainly gives it the old college try and so do Walters and Baranski, who are experienced singer/dancers. Somehow they all end up looking just as flamboyantly amateurish as everybody else."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Yeah, it's all a little bit on the camp side. It's a musical based on the songs of ABBA. A little bit camp is probably the height of restraint."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"After this, after "Movin' Out" (based on the deplorable songbook of one Willliam Joel), it's not even satire to suggest that the next big thing will be a musical inspired by the oeuvre of Howard Jones"
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"As for Meryl Streep, you sense that she's thinking what you're thinking: That she can't actually be in this movie."
‑ Stephen Himes, Film Snobs
