Mamma Mia! (2008) - full transcript

Set on a colorful Greek island, the plot serves as a background for a wealth of ABBA songs. A young woman about to be married discovers that any one of three men could be her father. She invites all three to the wedding without telling her mother, Donna, who was once the lead singer of Donna and the Dynamos. In the meantime, Donna has invited her backup singers, Rosie and Tanya.

[MOTORCYCLE REVVING]

Gentlemen,
I have to go.

Thank you very much.
Take care.

[DOG BARKING]

Morning, Rodney.

Taxi!

[WHOOPING SOFTLY]

JFK, please,
as quick as you can.

[WHOOPING]

[SCREAMING]

[ALL EXCLAIMING]
Oh, my God! Oh, my God!

[ALL LAUGHING]

I missed you.
Oh, no...

We’re...
We’re...

ALL: Sophie, Ali, Lisa! We’re
the greatest, greatest mates!

- I’m tough.
- I’m tall.

- I’m tiny.
- ALL: And we’re gonna rock this place.

- Sophie, it’s beautiful.
- I want one.

He did well,
didn’t he?

I’m getting
married tomorrow.

I’m so glad you’re here,

because I have a secret and
I can’t tell anybody else.

Sophie, you’re
knocked up?

No! No! No!

I’ve invited my dad
to my wedding.

You are joking!

You found him
at last?

No! No, no, no, no, no, not exactly.

Okay. You know what
my mom always said

- when I asked about my father.
- Mmm-hmm.

It was a summer romance,

and he’d gone long before she
realized that she was expecting me.

And I’d always kind of accepted
that that’s all I’d ever know.

Well, I was ransacking some
old trunks and I found this.

It’s the diary she kept the
year she was pregnant with me.

Sophie!

“July 17th.
What a night!”

I don’t know if I
want to hear this!

I do!

“Sam rowed me over
to the little island.”

That’s here.
That’s Kalokairi.

“We danced on the beach,
and we kissed on the beach,

“and dot, dot, dot.”

What?

“Dot, dot, dot.” That’s what
they did in the olden days.

Stop it!

“Sam’s the one.
I know he is.

“I’ve never felt
like this before.”

“All this time, Sam’s been
telling me he loves me,

“and now he’s announced
that he’s engaged,

“so he’s gone home
to get married,

“and I’m never
going to see him again.”

Poor Donna.

“August 4th.
What a night!

“Bill rented a motorboat, and I took
him over to the little island.”

Bill? Sophie, wait.

Hang on.

“Though I’m still
obsessed with Sam,

“Bill’s so wild.
He’s such a funny guy.

“One thing led

“August 11th. Harry turned

ALL: Dot, dot, dot!

- Oh, my God!
- [SINGSONGING] Here come the bridesmaids.

Donna!

Look at you!

God! Stop growing!

You sound like
you’re having fun already.

Oh, we are.

I used to have fun.

Oh, we know!

Bugger!

My sentiments exactly.

So, who is your dad?

- Sam, Bill or Harry?
- I don’t know.

But which one
did you invite?

BOTH: Oh, my God!

Do they know?

What would you write
to a total stranger?

“Please come to my wedding,
you might be my father”? No.

They think that Mom sent the
invites, and with what’s in here,

no surprise
they said yes!

[SPEAKS GREEK]

- What?
- Monday.

- Bollocks!
- Yeah, my sentiments exactly.

Bride or groom?

Bride, although I’ve
actually never met her.

BILL: Ahoy, there.

You guys need
a ride to Kalokairi?

Excuse me,
coming through.

I have a senior citizen
with me. Thank you.

My mother needs
a perch.

Mother? We’re
the same age.

Yeah. Well,
parts of us are.

[GRUNTS]

Ooh! Sailor.

Um, no.

Oh!

[THANKS IN GREEK]

[SIGHS]

TANYA: Oh, he has
your book!

[CHUCKLING]
on...

Stavros, Stavros.

Stavros.

[SCREAMING]

It’s just a fish.

You are so clever.

We’re going to look
fabulous tomorrow.

I want the perfect wedding, and I
want my father to give me away.

Better be
a wide aisle.

- Ow!
- I will know my father
as soon as I see him.

LISA: Sky!
Come here, gorgeous.

SKY: Put me down. I’m
getting married tomorrow.

Please be careful.

- So?
- There are pins
in the dresses.

What do you think?

Oh, yes!

“Oh, yes.”
If you had your way,

it’d be a three-minute wedding
in jeans and T-shirts,

washed down with
a bottle of beer.

You make me sound
so unromantic!

I just thought we should save
our money for traveling.

Well, we’re not
going anywhere yet.

Anyway, please leave.
We’re very, very busy.

I’m just getting
some props for tonight.

LISA AND ALI: Ooh!

SOPHIE: For his
bachelor party.

Why haven’t you told him
you’ve invited your dads?

Because he would say that
I’d have to tell my mom.

Donna’s absolutely gonna
kill you when she finds out.

By the time she finds out,
it’ll be too late.

I feel like there’s
a part of me missing,

and when I meet my dad,

everything

will fall into place.

[BILL EXCLAIMS]

- BILL: More open!
- HARRY: I’m on it. I’m on it.

That’s good.

That’s it.

Come on, Cleopatra.

[SHRIEKS]

My Shoe!

Will you look at
what the tide washed in?

For one night.

And one night only.

ALL: Donna and the Dynamos!

[ALL SCREAMING]

Look at you!

You baby!

Look at you!

You look fantastic!

You look like
an old hippie!

She looks fab.

These are new, though.
Where did you get these?

Husband
number three!

ALL: Dynamos! Dynamite!

ALL: Sleep all day and...

[WHOOP] All night!

[ALL LAUGHING]

TANYA: So, any men
at this wedding?

Gorgeous Greeks of
independent means?

Here we go!
Husband number four!

- No! Not for me, for her!
- He’s coming!

For her, now that her
book is a bestseller,

and she’s got the
whole world stuffing,

what, mushrooms?
Various vegetables?

It’s time to find
Mr. Right!

Oh, please. Boring!

Great couple of role models
you two are for Sophie!

A serial bride and
a little hermit over here!

That’s me!
I’m a lone wolf!

[HOWLING]

ROSIE: So, when are the
lovebirds flying the nest?

Oh, God!
Who knows?

You know, I do not
know what is going on

in that child’s
head sometimes.

She wants a big
white wedding, and

she and Sky are making all
kinds of plans for the hotel.

Sometimes I think
they’ll never leave.

Yeah, but do you
really want her to?

Well, I want
what’s best for her.

Of course not!

[ALL LAUGHING]

Sky! Come meet
my backup girls.

- ROSIE: Backup girls, my ass!
- TANYA: Backup girls, my ass!

He’s the leading man
at tomorrow’s shindig.

- SKY: The lucky man.
- Hello.

You must be Rosie.

I am.

- How are you?
- Very well. Oh!

And you must
be Tanya.

I’ve heard so much
about you.

All bad, I hope.

- Yes.
- And all true.

Donna...
Here, let me get them.

I know who you are. You’re
Bill Anderson, aren’t you?

Uh-huh.

Bloke in a Boat
in Botswana.

Yes, I am.

You know, your books are a
godsend on dull business trips.

Now, I may look like I’m pondering
my securities, but in reality,

I’m trekking across some
remote corner of the planet.

You should try it
for real sometime.

No, certainly, I’ll never be
the spontaneous adventurer.

You’re a close
friend of Donna’s?

No, I haven’t heard
from her for 20 years.

- SAM: Really?
- And then this invite,
out of the blue.

You know, that’s a
coincidence, neither had I.

Going about!

You got it!

Right. Wait...

I’ve got it.
Fine. Fine.

ROSIE: You should have
brought the iron lung.

Why did I wear
stilettos?

- [GASPING] Oxygen
- Oh, my God!

Auntie Rosie!

Hey, hey!

Look at Sophie. She’s
gotten so beautiful!

I know.

Come here to me. Oh!

Sophie Sheridan, you get more gorgeous
every time I see you. You do.

I bet you don’t
remember me.

Not with all that
plastic surgery.

Of course I do, Auntie Tanya.
You haven’t changed at all.

- I’m so happy for you.
- Look at my baby,

her whole life
ahead of her.

Oh, please, I’m getting married.
I’m not joining a convent!

- Ooh! She’s feisty. I love that.
- Yeah.

She’s a chip
off the old block.

If she were more like me, she
wouldn’t be getting married at 20.

Or married at all.

Oh, I meant to get the laundry
down before you came.

ROSIE: Tanya’s going home!

And you’d think with all
this new technology,

they would figure out a machine
that would make the beds.

And if they did, you’d be
going along behind it,

making them again.

I know you, Mom.

But I am good
at modern...

Tell them about
the Internets.

- He’s gonna put me on the line.
- SOPHIE: Online.

SKY: I’m designing
a website.

I just think this place has so much
potential, and no one knows we’re here.

So, if I market it really, really well, then,
hopefully, people will come flooding in.

We just want this to be the
ultimate romantic destination.

This was once supposed to be the
site of Aphrodite’s fountain,

you know, the goddess of love.
And if you drank the water,

you were supposed to find true
love and perfect happiness.

I’ll have a glass
of that.

Yeah, I’ll have
a bucket.

TANYA: Aphrodite’s spa?

Well, I thought you didn’t
want boatloads of tourists.

Oh, no, not
boatloads, no.

But, you know,
a few more would be nice.

Okay, now, the thing
about the toilet,

if it doesn’t flush
right away, just go

and come back in a while,
and it should...

Nothing works around here,
except for me.

I’ve been running
this hotel for 15 years,

and I have never
had a day off.

[EXCLAIMING]
Oh, my God! Sorry.

What’s going on?

Do you feel it?

The earth moved, darling.
We’re falling apart here.

Don’t think about it, come on.
Let’s go have fun.

ROSIE: Tanya’s packed
for a world tour.

[DONNA HUMMING]
Oh, Donna. Donna!

Does she wear it
or floss with it?

TANYA: Floss you.

Is it edible,
Tanya?

“The world’s most
luxurious moisturizer

“contains flakes
of 24-karat gold

“and extracts of
donkey testicle.”

You’re just jealous.

At a thousand
dollars a dollop.

Tell you, that’s the
price you have to pay

if you wanna drink
before 11:00 in the morning.

- And we do.
- We do.

Hi.

May I help you?

BILL: Sure, we’re here
for the wedding.

- I’m Bill Anderson.
- SOPHIE: Huh?

I’m Bright,
Harry Bright.

Sam Carmichael.

You are expecting us?

Oh, my God. Yes!

You’re not
Donna’s daughter?

I thought you looked
familiar Uh, Sofia.

- It’s Sophie.
- Well, Sofia is the Greek.

Well, I’m named
after a Sofia.

I used to have a great-aunt living
on the mainland named Sofia.

Would you mind if we see our
rooms before we see your mother?

Sure.

It’s just that I’d quite like to
freshen up before the big reunion.

No! No! I mean, yes,

but come this way.

[CHUCKLING]
Come on!

Oh, my God!

I got a crack in my courtyard.
I gotta go fix it.

- Hey, listen, Donna? Donna.
- I’m serious. Move.

Whoa!

Sit down!

- She won’t let me go!
- I know...

I know you’re going to make
a fortune with web’s...

“With web’s...”

With Sky’s site.

I know you’re gonna
make a fortune with

Sky’s website, but...

It’s good.

Are you gonna be
okay until then?

I think Tanya is
offering to pawn her bling.

- No, seriously, Donna...
- Oh, my God.

Do you need a loan?

No, sweet.

Oh, God, I’m just
whining, you know me.

I don’t need to
be taken care of.

Yeah, but are you
being taken care of?

What do you mean?

Are you getting any?

Oh, you mean...

[DRILL WHIRRING]

Down, boy, down, boy.
No, it takes too much energy.

Yeah. Just more plumbing
to be maintained, isn’t it?

Yeah.

Oh, God, I’m so glad that whole
part of my life is over.

You know, seriously.

[EXHALES]

I do not miss it at all.

[CLEARS THROAT]

[GOAT BLEATING]

Then it’s just
right here.

Good.

Where’s Donna? Hey! Okay.

Up you go.

[CHUCKLES]

[GROANS SOFTLY]

Hmm.

You know,

I don’t want to seem ungrateful
for the scenic tour,

but might I be
shown my room now?

Well, don’t hold your breath, Harry,
but I think this is your room.

Can we see
Donna now?

I sent the invites.

My mom doesn’t
know anything.

[SIGHING]

[GIGGLING]

Well, she’s done
so much for me,

and she’s always
talking about you guys

and the good
old days, and

I thought, what an
amazing surprise for her

that you are all
gonna be at my wedding.

Hang on, Sophie.

I can’t be here.

The last time
I saw your mother,

she said she never
wanted to see me again.

That was years ago. Please,
it would mean a lot to me.

Why?

HARRY: Listen, I can see
that you’ve been

to a great
deal of trouble.

Might I suggest that we all
reconvene on your boat?

- Good idea.
- Nope.

- Why?
- It’s an adventure, Harry.
It’s good for you.

Oh, I see.

Okay, when I sent the invites, it was
a long shot that you’d even reply.

And now you’ve come all
this way for a wedding.

Surely there must have been some
special reason for you to be here.

Like some siren call, maybe?

[ALL CHUCKLING]

You’re a little minx, you know that?
You’re just like your mother.

I’m glad my boys haven’t met you.
They’d never recover.

You have sons?

Yes, two.

And someday, I’d like
to bring them here.

Like you used to
bring my mother?

[DONNA HUMMING]

- No.
- It’s Donna.

[WHISPERING] No, no, no,
no, no, no, no. Listen,
listen, she can’t know.

I’m going to go.
Please stay.

Promise me that you’ll not tell
anybody that I invited you.

Okay? Promise?

You got it, baby.

It’s a promise.

- I might regret it, but okay.
- Okay.

There wouldn’t, uh, by any chance,
happen to be a trouser press

on the island,
would there?

DONNA: Harry?

I’d better be dreaming.
You’d better not be here.

You want me to

No! You keep your hands to
yourself, Bill Anderson.

You probably don’t
recognize me, do you?

Harry! It is you!

I probably changed a bit,
but you certainly haven’t.

Mmm-mmm.

Why are you here?
What are you doing here?

I’m writing
a travel piece.

[HESITANTLY] I’m here
on a spontaneous holiday.

Uh-huh.

I just dropped in
to say hi.

[STAMMERING]
Okay. What is this?

It’s one of those serendipitous moments
in life when three complete strangers

- share a common thought.
- Mmm-hmm.

Strangers?

You don’t know
each other?

That’s generally
the definition.

Okay, good, but who...
Why are you here?

Who said that you could stay
up in my old goat-house?

- BILL: Didn’t catch the name.
- Greek lady.

- Well, she spoke Greek.
- Yeah.

Or maybe she said we couldn’t
stay in the old goat-house.

- Yeah, maybe that was it, in Greek.
- There you go.

Yeah, that’s it, that’s it.
You can’t stay here because

I’m, uh, closed
and I’m full.

And I’m busy, I’m really...
I have a wedding, my...

Local girl’s
getting married...

Donna. Donna,
don’t worry about us.

Bill here is
used to roughing it.

- And Harry here...
- I’m spontaneous.

- Spontaneous.
- DONNA: Ah.

What about you?

Just wanted to
see the island.

You know what
it meant to me.

Okay, I’m gonna
arrange for a boat

to take you all
back to the mainland.

- I have a boat, Donna.
- You have a boat?
Good, get on it,

and anchors away.

- Hey, Donna...
- Away, away.

ALL: It’s good to see you.

[SIGHS]

Now, baby, this should
tickle your taste buds.

Down, big fella. I’m old
enough to be your mother.

- It’s her dad.
- Whose dad?

Sophie’s dad.

Remember how I said it was Sam?
Sam the architect,

who had to go home
to get married?

I’m not sure
that it was him,

because there were two other
guys around the same time.

Donna Sheridan.
You shady lady.

Why didn’t you tell us?

Well, I never knew that I
would ever, ever have to.

I never imagined I’d
see all three of them

in my old goat-house

the day before my
daughter’s wedding!

BOTH: The old goat-house?

[BOTH STIFLING LAUGHTER]

DONNA: No! No! Wait!

Shoot!

Rosie! Tanya!

Wait a minute!
Don’t let them hear you!

There’s no one here.

Are you sure?

Of course
I’m sure!

Do you think I would
forget my daughter’s dads?

They were all here.
Sam Carmichael,

Bill Anderson and
Harry “Head Banger.”

ROSIE: Harry “Head Banger.”

DONNA: They must’ve gone
back to their boat.

I hope they run
aground and drown.

What are they
doing here?

It’s like some
hideous trick of fate.

[ALL LAUGHING]

[LAUGHTER STOPS]

[MAN 1 CLEARING THROAT]

[MAN 2 WHISTLING NONCHALANTLY]

It’s very Greek.

Do they know
about Sophie?

What are they, psychic?
No! I’ve never told a soul.

Oh, Donna, keeping it to
yourself all these years.

It doesn’t matter
about me.

The only thing
that matters

is that Sophie
never finds out.

Well, maybe she

Hold on. Hold on.

You invited these guys
and you didn’t tell me?

No, I thought you
would try to stop me.

- I know I messed up.
- Sophie?

Is that what this whole
big white wedding is about?

- You finding your dad?
- No. No!

I wanted to take a boat to the
mainland with a couple of witnesses.

And you insisted on
this sodding circus

so you could
play Happy Families.

It’s about knowing who I am.
And I wanted to get married
knowing who I am.

That doesn’t come
from finding your father,

that comes from
finding yourself.

And the irony is, I was
traveling to find myself.

I put everything
on hold for you.

Because I loved you and I
wanted what you wanted.

Now, I don’t know.

You don’t know
if you love me?

Of course I love you.
I just wish you’d told me.

Is everything okay?

- Sophie, what’s wrong?
- Not now, Sam.

Yes, yes, yes, now.

Because I’m supposed to be
giving you away.

And how can I when I know you’re
not really gonna be happy?

I’ve heard all this
from my mother,

and I think she knows me
better than you do.

I know. But I’ve done the big
white wedding, and believe me,

it doesn’t always end
in “happy ever after.”

That is you.
That’s not me.

Okay? I love Sky more than
anything in the world. And I...

[GRUNTS]

Did you feel that way
before you got married?

No.

Hey, aren’t you supposed
to be getting dressed?

Where’s Ali and Lisa? I thought
they were going to help you.

Will you help me?

Mmm-hmm.

[GIGGLES SOFTLY]

[CHUCKLING] Wait.
It’s okay, it’s okay.

We have time.

Do you think
I’m letting you down?

Why would you
even think that?

Well, because of
what you’ve done.

I mean, the Dynamos,
raising a kid,

and running a business
all on your own.

Well, honey,
I didn’t have a choice.

I couldn’t go home,
you know.

When I got pregnant, my mother
told me not to bother coming back.

And I wouldn’t have
had it any other way.

My God, look at
what we’ve had.

Will you give me away?

Yeah.

Donna, there you are.

- LISA: Panic over! Here she is.
- ALI: She’s here.

Oh, don’t worry.

Oh, God.

[BAND SOFTLY PLAYING
“KNOWING ME, KNOWING YOU”]

[WHISPERS]
I love you.

Welcome to Sophie and Sky,

and to all your friends who have
gathered together this evening.

And welcome,
especially, to Donna,

who represents
your family.

We are all here together
in this glorious...

And welcome to...

[SIGHING] To

Sophie’s dad.

[PEOPLE GASPING]

I have to tell you.
He is here.

I know. I invited him.

You couldn’t have. I don’t
know which one it is.

[PEOPLE MURMURING]

Oh, my God.

That’s why
they’re all here!

I’m sorry.
Sorry. I just...

Please, please forgive me!
Please forgive me. Please.

I don’t know.

Can you forgive me?

What?

I don’t care if you slept
with hundreds of men.

You’re my mom, and I
love you so much.

Oh, Soph.

[UNDER HER BREATH]
And I haven’t slept
with hundreds of men.

[PEOPLE CHUCKLING]

Am I getting this right?

Sophie may be mine, but she
may be Bill’s or Harry’s?

Yeah, yeah. That’s right. And don’t
get all self-righteous with me,

because you have no one
but yourself to blame.

Yeah, if you hadn’t
just dumped my mother

and gone off and
married somebody else...

Hey, hey, wait a minute! I had to go home.
I was engaged.

But I told Lorraine I couldn’t
marry her, and I came right back.

You...

You...

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

Why didn’t you
call me?

Because I was crazy enough to think
that you would be waiting for me.

Only when I arrived, they told me
you were off with some other guy.

So, Lorraine called me an idiot
and married me to prove it.

Sorry, can I just...
Might I just butt in?

DONNA: Oh, Harry, don’t... It’s all right.
You don’t have to.

No, no, I just wanted
to say it’s great

to have even
a third of Sophie.

I never thought I’d get
even that much of a child.

Donna, you were the first
girl I ever loved.

Well, actually, you were
the last girl I ever loved.

Now, this gives me an excuse
to come here much more often.

We can find out
if you want,

but I’m with Harry.

Being a third of your
dad is great by me.

BILL: By me, too.

I’ll take a third.

Typical, isn’t it? You
wait 20 years for a dad,

and then three
come along at once.

Dearly beloved...

You know, I have no clue which one
of you is my dad, but I don’t mind.

Now, I know
what I really want.

Sky, let’s just not
get married yet.

- What?
- What?

You never
wanted this anyway.

I know that. Let’s just get off
this island and just see the world.

Okay? All right?

I love you.

[ALL CHEERING]

Donna, do I take it
the wedding is canceled?

I’m not entirely sure
what’s happening right now.

Hang on.

Why waste
a good wedding?

How about it, Sheridan?

You’re going to need someone to boss
around on this island of yours.

Are you nuts?
I am not a bigamist.

Neither am I. I’m a divorced man
who’s loved you for 21 years,

and ever since the day
I set foot on this island,

I’ve been trying to tell you
how much I love you.
