Best part: E's full-body grins when she was particularly amused.
Whenever Meryl Streep's histrionic hippie was on screen, the movie was divine, especially if she was with Pierce Brosnan, and ESPECIALLY if they were singing, and ESPECIALLY when they were singing "S.O.S.". I recall seeing some review which talked about how pathetic Streep was, but I thought she was having a grand old time, just putting it all out there in prime camp Abba fashion. Ditto for Christine Baranski and Julie Waters.
The young people father/marriage plot? Eh. And it brought down the movie, I thought, from the sublimity of Streep et al to, well, eh.
Still, we had fun. I mean, it was Abba.
