Mamma Mia! on DVD

Two-time Oscar® winner Meryl Streep (The Devil Wears Prada) and Pierce Brosnan (Die Another Day) lead an all-star cast in the most infectiously fun movie of the year, Mamma Mia! The Movie, coming to DVD and Blu-ray Hi-Def on December 16, 2008 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. For a limited time only, the worldwide movie phenomenon is available in 2-disc Special Edition widescreen DVD and 2-Disc Blu-ray Hi-Def with digital copy. Both versions are packed with bonus materials including a deleted musical number and a bonus feature which provides onscreen lyrics so that viewers can sing along to the film’s 19 iconic songs. Additionally, only on Blu-ray, fans can experience the film in perfect picture and purest digital sound, and via BD Live, create their own video, audio or text track to watch with the movie and share with friends.

Overflowing with high-spirited fun, Mamma Mia! The Movie is the perfect film to enjoy at home this holiday season, and great for gift giving. Joining Streep and Brosnan onscreen are Amanda Seyfried (“Big Love”), Colin Firth (Love Actually), Stellan Skarsgård (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End), Julie Walters (the Harry Potter films), Dominic Cooper (The History Boys) and Christine Baranski (Chicago).

The three women who created the worldwide smash stage hit—global producer Judy Craymer, writer Catherine Johnson and director Phyllida Lloyd—repeat their roles in bringing this joyful, musical story to the big screen. The Mamma Mia! film is produced by Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman (My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Charlie Wilson’s War).

Mamma Mia! The Movie is an unprecedented worldwide phenomenon that continues to break records around the world. To date, it is the most successful movie musical of all time worldwide.

Seen on stage by over 32 million people around the world, the global smash hit stage production of MAMMA MIA!, is celebrating more than 7 years on Broadway and is currently playing record-breaking engagements in Las Vegas and on National Tour in the United States. There are currently 8 productions of MAMMA MIA! running around the world (6 resident productions and 2 tours).

An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna (Meryl Streep) is about to let go of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), the spirited daughter she’s raised alone. For Sophie’s wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends—practical and no-nonsense Rosie (Julie Walters) and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya (Christine Baranski)—from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own. On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna’s past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities. Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s hit songs from “Dancing Queen” and “S.O.S.” to “Money, Money, Money” and “Take a Chance on Me,” Mamma Mia! The Movie is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.

The single disc DVD is priced at $29.98 SRP, the 2-disc Special Edition is available for $34.98 SRP, and the Blu-ray Hi-Def is priced at $39.98 SRP.

CRITICS SING THE PRAISES OF MAMMA MIA! THE MOVIE

Some of America’s top critics saluted Mamma Mia! The Movie when it took the country by storm with its catchy tunes and ebullient message. “An absolutely hilarious, rousing and joyous celebration! You’ll want to see it again the minute it ends,” raves Pete Hammond, of Hollywood.com. Richard Roeper of “At the Movies with Ebert & Roeper” says the film is “a lot of fun” while Ray Bennett of The Hollywood Reporter writes, “Meryl Streep is sensational!” and the movie is “irresistible,” adding, “this is the winner that will take it all!” Bradley Jacobs of Us Weekly declares Mamma Mia! The Movie, “A crowd-pleaser!”
