The massively successful stage musical Mamma Mia! uses the much-loved songs by 70s mega pop group ABBA to underpin a breezy comedy of manners about a young bride who, unbeknownst to her mother, invites the three men who could be her father to her wedding. As the wedding ceremony approaches misunderstandings, confusions and general wackiness ensue.
This new Hairspray film is an adaptation of the Broadway musical, which was based on the original cult film by John Waters. Fans of the original will be pleased to know that Waters endorse this new version by appearing during the opening song as a flasher.
