What a MESS! The acting is good, the music is great, but someone needs to teach first time Mamma Mia! director Phyllida Lloyd (and her cinematographer, and her choreographer, for that matter) how to stage a fluid dance sequence and how to frame a shot. I wanted to love this movie so much - and it was a thrill to see La Streep break some new ground - but ultimately, it's an IRREDEEMABLY CHEESY DISASTER. Buy the soundtrack to experience Amanda Seyfried's pitch-perfect pipes, but skip the film.
