Still shot from the movie: Mamma Mia!.

Mamma Mia!

It is traditional for a bride to be given away by her father, but that is a problematic custom for Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) because she doesn't know her Dad's identity. Nor will her mother (Meryl Streep) confess. Wanting to find out, the young woman invites three of her Mom's old boyfriends (Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgaard) to the wedding, hoping one of them may be the right man. This movie is based on a Broadway musical that features songs from the 70's disco sensation ABBA. Get the movie review and more. »

Many of the guests at a tiny island retreat consume alcohol. Drinks are served at parties and with dinner. Three women appear to be drunk. Prescription drug use and cigars are also shown.
