"Mama Mia!" (Blu-ray)
Sophie Sheridan (Seyfried) is planning to get married.
Of course, she wants her father to walk her down the aisle at the wedding.
Problem is, she doesn't know who her father is, so she is determined to find out.
She reads her mother's (Streep) diary, and finding the names of three men, she invites them all to the wedding in hopes of discovering her father's identity.

Here is a story about an upcoming wedding where the bride-to-be's seemingly biggest problem is finding her dad. This makes for a feel good story and some great comedy. Having co-stars like Streep, Brosnan, andÂ Firth add to theÂ movie'sÂ acting depth.Â TheÂ scene with Streep singing "Dancing Queen" with a group of other women is a highlight.
Nice sharp picture (Blu-ray production teams now seem toÂ have the whole process under control), but there is not much use for surround sound in this kind of movie. Even so, it is nice to have DTS-HD Master Audio along for the necessary details.
These include The Making of, Becoming a Singer, and other things.
