Visible crew/equipment: While Sophie's with Lisa and Ali at the dock, after they admire Sophie's engagement ring Lisa bends down to pick up her handbag, and there's a rather large bulge at her lower back under her top - presumably the mic pack, which wasn't there when Lisa lifted Sophie and spun her around.

Trivia: While neither the stage show nor the film reveals who Sophie's real father is, there is an official answer. According to Catherine Johnson and Phyllida Lloyd, Sophie's real father is Bill. Bill's character was Australian in the original stage production, but in the film he became a Swede instead, and he's played by Swedish actor Stellan SkarsgÄrd. This means the film's Sophie has her roots in Sweden - just like "Mamma Mia!"

Question: So did they really get married to play 'happy families'? Because when Sophie says 'I don't know which is my dad and I don't care, Sky let's not get married' it sounds a bit like they are playing 'happy families'.


Chosen answer: Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan got married because they loved each other and had done for many years. The daughter changed her mind about getting married because she realised what really mattered to her and that seeing the world while they were young and free wasn't such a bad idea after all, that she didn't need to get married and hang around for her mother's sake.
