- A mother. A daughter. Three possible fathers. Take a trip down the aisle you'll never forget
- Sophie has just one wish, to meet her father......whichever one he is.
- With every wedding come a few surprises.
- Who said a wedding couldn't be this much fun?
This is a story of a 20 year old bride-to-be named Sophie who is looking for her father to give her away when she gets married. She chanced upon her mom's diary and there she found she had 3 possible fathers and she mailed the three to come to her wedding. And her mom doesn't know. The 3 immediately replied and arrived a day before the wedding.
I wasn't expecting it to turn out great but - IT IS. I had a fun time singing along with the hits from ABBA (Dancing Queen, I had a Dream, Money, Money, Money, and more). It was light hearted and very heartwarming. I soooo love the setting. I'm loving Greece even more!!! *swoons*
If you want singing and dancing...with a touch of love and romance.. I think this is the movie for you. And of course, teenagers would love it as much as the older generations would since it pictures both worlds. I enjoyed the stag party and the shower party. It was fun. Great Great Great! Brilliant! Feel good film. Whenever they sing "Dancing Queen" it would make you want to stand and dance to the beat... and all the songs actually remained and gave me an LSS a few days after watching it. :)
Sky: It's my last night of freedom... which is what some might see it, but for me it's the last night before the greatest adventure of my life.
Sophie: [reading Donna's diary] We danced on the beach, kissed on the beach and dot, dot, dot.
