Mamma Mia!

Open your heart.

Approach this jukebox musical, or ABBA, with the slightest bit of cynicism, and you’re in for a slog.

Thankfully, a lot of folks seem to get the appeal of the Swedish super group, which makes my own love easier to admit.

Here, their music fuels the (admittedly paper-thin) tale of a young woman — Amanda Seyfried at her most winsome — trying to track the identity of her father.

Mamma Mia redefines light ‘n frothy, but that’s not a bad thing.

It has a good beat, and you can dance to it, and sometimes that’s more than enough.
