To set things “straight” (if one can even use that word without one’s tongue in one’s cheek when reviewing a movie such as this…) I haven’t seen the stage show upon which this film is based, and I don’t count myself as a fan of Swedish mega-popgroup ABBA. Like everyone else on the planet, however (well, everyone who’s had access to a television or a radio sometime during the last thirty years) I’ve heard most of ABBA’s songs a million times, and while I don’t dance along to them, I can tolerate them as the well-crafted pop they are.
