Mamma Mia! (2008) (part 1 of 3)

Welcome to the ninth installment of Razzie Contenders: 2009 Edition! In this special series of recaps, the Agony Booth staff takes a long, unflinching look at the awful movies that got nominated (or should have been nominated) for Razzie Awards in 2009!

Mamma Mia! (2008)

Mamma Mia! is arguably the single most popular film ever recapped on the Agony Booth. It has taken in an astonishing $598 million worldwide for Universal, making it by far the highest-grossing musical of all time.

Mamma Mia! is also the highest-grossing movie of any sort in the UK, beating out Titanic. It’s also the fastest-selling DVD ever in the UK, even though the movie is still in theatres there. This conclusively proves my theory that the English are not just quaint, little people who spell the word “theater” wrong, they are actually clinically deranged.
