7 Reasons Why Mamma Mia Is The Ultimate Go-To Movie
Start writing a post

There's no argument that musicals are one of the best categories for feel good movies of all time. The random outbursts of singing and dancing tied with a little bit of drama or betrayal gives us surprises at every second. One of my most watched musicals is Mamma Mia, and it truly is the ultimate go-to movie. The original movie is great, and the second one holds as much greatness as the first one. Whether you're feeling happy, sad, confused or just any emotion, you can turn on either Mamma Mia and just feel good. Here are 7 reasons why Mamma Mia should be added to your movie list.

The scenery of Greece


The movie is set in a little island off of the mainland of Greece called Skopelos. In the movie, they call it Kalokairi, but it's still just as beautiful. During the entire movie you get an aesthetically pleasing setting that makes you feel like you're actually in Greece without ever leaving your bed. What's better than feeling like you're halfway across the world from the comfort of your own home?

Meryl Streep herself


One of the most famous actresses of the century makes this movie the phenomenon it is. A movie is only as good as it's lead actor/actress, and she definitely makes the part. Streep plays this part so well it's almost like Donna Sheridan is a real person.

The rest of the cast


Working along with Streep, the rest of the cast does an amazing job delivering the story line to the big screen. Amanda Seyfried, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan: spectacular. The jam packed cast brings chemistry that makes the movie come alive. What's better than that?

A classic twist on ABBA songs


The popular band ABBA gets its most popular songs covered in this movie. This makes it a fan favorite for all ages. The songs are easy to sing along to and contain the two hits that everyone knows, "Mamma Mia" and "Dancing Queen." Once you hear them, you don't want to stop listening.

The family drama


Every family has its own set of drama and problems, but could you imagine your 3 possible dads all being on the same island at once? Better yet, being someone like Donna Sheridan and having 3 of your exes show up at once? There's some hot tea being spilled the entire time.

The love story


The first movie is focused around a wedding that takes place between Sophie Sheridan and her boyfriend, Skye. They are really portrayed as a perfect couple in the mix of all the chaos that happens. It's a great thing to see one thing that at least one thing goes according to plan, or so we think.

The dance numbers


What's a musical without dancing? The dance numbers are what make the movie so enjoyable. They make you want to get up and dance along side of them and really be the dancing queen. People of all ages are seen in every dance number, so anyone is able to do the moves. When you're watching the movie in your room, get up and dance like no one's watching.

After all this, you should be ready to have a Mamma Mia marathon. So sit down with some pita chips and hummus and get ready to be the ultimate Dancing Queen.
