Donna Sheridan (Meryl Streep) runs a hotel on the Greek island to which she brought three men to more than 20 years ago. And while she had sent them all away, now her daughter Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is getting married to her boyfriend (Dominic Cooper) there tomorrow. Sophie wants her father to walk her down the aisle, but doesn’t know who he is. After reading her mother’s diary, she narrows it down to those three guys: Sam Carmichael (Pierce Brosnan), Bill Anderson (Stellan Skarsgärd) and Harry Bright (Colin Firth)—and, unbeknownst to Donna, invites them all to the wedding.

All three show up—as do Donna’s sidekicks from her showbiz days, Tanya (Christine Baranski) and Rosie (Julie Walters). While the men are confused as to why they’re there, Donna is furious, and wants them gone. But one night, each of the men realizes he must be Sophie’s dad. This hit Broadway musical inspired by the music of ABBA is a joyous celebration from beginning to its surprising finale.

DVD Extras: Two-disc will include on-screen lyrics for 22 musical numbers; featurettes.
