The story of a bride-to-be trying to find her real father told using hit songs by the popular 1970s group ABBA.
When the stage show was performed in Edinburgh, the male dancers included a "Highland Fling" in "Lay All Your Love On Me". In the film, one dancer performs the same steps during the song.
Rosie: It's just a fish!
When Meryl Streep closes the bedroom door in the scene right before "Dancing Queen", you see Julie Walters' reflection in the mirror next to her, hands on her hips. In the next shot Streep turns to face Walthers, who now suddenly hasn't got her hands on her hips anymore.
After the final scene of the movie Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski and Julie Walters appear on a sound stage in matching 1970s glam-rock costumes and sing "Dancing Queen". When they finish Meryl 'asks' the audience if they want an encore. The three ladies are then joined by Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard who are similarly attired. Along with Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper, they provide a rendition of "Waterloo" as the main credits roll.
