Meryl Streep is a good singer, but I don't think she is right in this part. Some of the musical scenes were quite awkward. The winner takes it all especially. Some of the camera shots, the acting, and the dancing especially didn't seem to work. Maybe for a high school show though. I have not seen the stage show yet, but in the movie, some of the songs didn't seem to fit with what was happening. Songs that were written for the show were fine and worked in the movie, but some of the abba songs didn't work at all.
I expected a lot from this movie, but left very disappointed.
