[Highly rated reviewer]I'm sorry but a musical cast with people who cannot sing and cannot dance says 'disaster' to me.
Some say that this film is so cheesy bad it is brilliant. No! It is so bad it is BAD!
Even when Meryl Streep shows that she can sing a bit, she does it like a pub karoake singer, seeking to put too much emotion and meaning in to every single word.
The choreograhpy is appalling.
Yes, Abba music is wonderfully catchy. Yes, the music may bring back great memories for many watching. However, the film itself is just rubbish and I defy anyone to honestly say otherwise.

Not what you'd expectBy SteveP022 (19 reviews) , 29 Oct 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI'd like to say that it was good but I can't. I'd also like to say it was bad but I can't. I will say that its watchable if only for the sound track for those of us that remember ABBA and brought the album all those years ago
Abba and Meryl???By princesslunanini (12 reviews) , 23 Oct 2011What is this about ........... Meryl please !!! I hope they paid her loads because she is one of the best. But 5 minutes into the film and she sing like cinderella.
I like Abba and I love Meryl Streep, but maybe not together...
To be fair we agreed (3 children and 2 adults) we had enough within 10 maybe 15 minutes. We interrupted the film at the money money, maybe it picks up from there.
BUT I don't like musicals and I haven't watch the musical in theatre.
