Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What was the major event that was being prepared for at the beginning of the movie?

Answer: a wedding

Never having been married herself, Donna had mixed emotions as she prepared for the wedding of her 20 year old daughter, Sophie. She had raised Sophie by herself, and while she wanted her to be happy, she felt that she was too young to be making such a commitment, and worried that she was doing it for the wrong reasons. She had her hands full with the regular wedding preparations, while welcoming her guests into the rather rustic hotel she ran, that was in need of serious repairs.
Donna was played by Meryl Streep and Sophie was played by Amanda Seyfried.
2. Raised on a Greek island by her mother, Sophie never knew who her father was. How did she learn that there were three different men who might fit the role?

Answer: She read her mother's diary.

With her wedding approaching, Sophie was desperate to find out who her father was. She found her mother's old diary which spoke of romantic liaisons with three different men the summer before Sophie was born. Sophie sent wedding invitations to all three men, hoping that she would know which one was her father the minute she saw them. Of course no mention was made of how she managed to locate them to send them invitations!
3. How did the three possible fathers get to the island?

Answer: on Bill's sailboat

Sam Carmichael and Harry Bright were seen arriving at the dock too late to catch the ferry. Sam interpreted the Greek writing on the sign that informed them that the next ferry wouldn't be until Monday. Bill called out to them from his sailboat, offering them passage to the island where he was also going. They were all surprised to find that they had received invitations to the same wedding.
Sam was played by Pierce Brosnan, Harry by Colin Firth and Bill was played by Stellan Skarsgard.
4. Sophie had not told her mother that she had invited these men, so when they arrived she quickly took them to their room. Where was this room located?

Answer: in the old goat house

Because she really didn't want her mother to know that they were there, Sophie took them on a circuitous route that ended up with them entering their large, shared room in the old goat house, through trap doors from underneath. Donna referred to the building that they were in as her old goat house at several different points to her girlfriends.

This was after she heard something going on, stuck her head up through the trap door and was shocked to see the three men. When she finally confronted them (after falling through a window in the roof above their room), she asked them to leave.

They left her hotel but not the area, bunking down in Bill's boat.
5. Resurrecting her old group, Donna and the Dynamos, Donna and her friends dressed up in disco garb and entertained the girls at the hen party the night before the wedding. What song did they sing?

Answer: Super Trouper

Written by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus (the two Bs from ABBA). "Super Trouper" was released in 1980 on the album of the same name. The name for the song came from the big stadium spotlights, featured in the video along with circus performers and the group singing the song. The single reached Number One in Great Britain but only got to Number 45 in the States.
Donna's friend were played by Julie Waters and Christine Baranski.
6. Who gave Sophie away at her wedding?

Answer: Donna

During the girls' party the night before (which was crashed by first the three dads and then the rest of the men) Sophie spoke first to Bill. Convinced from their conversation that he was her father, she asked him to give her away and he agreed. Later she spoke to both Harry and Sam, each convinced that he was her father. Both men offered to give her away so she was faced with having three different "fathers" giving her away.

In order to avoid having to choose, she asked her mother to give her away. Donna was touched at being asked, and proud to do it.
7. Who turned out to be Sophie's father?

Answer: We never found out.

During the ceremony at the church, Donna mentioned the fact that Sophie's father was in the room. All three of the men stood up to be identified as such. After much discussion about what happened that summer, they each acknowledged that while they could have testing to find out which of them was her real father, each was content to not know and to have a third of her.
8. Who ended up getting married?

Answer: Donna and Sam

Having had the issue of her parentage sort of cleared up, Sophie announced that although she loved Sky and wanted to spend her life with him, she wasn't ready to get married and wanted to do some traveling. Sam surprised Donna by suggesting that they get married instead. Since he was the one whom Donna really loved (the other two being rebound relationships) she accepted, after he explained that he had broken off his engagement, twenty-one years before, and had come back for her, only to find that she had left with another man. Although they didn't marry, Rosie did set her sights on Bill, and though he initially resisted, he eventually gave in and it looked like the two of them would be keeping company.
9. What unusual event happened at the celebration party, after the wedding?

Answer: The dolphin mosaic broke and a huge fountain erupted, soaking everyone.

Earlier in the movie it was mentioned that local legend claimed the hotel was built on Aphrodite's fountain. When a tremor cause the dolphin mosaic in the patio to crack, Donna tried to caulk it shut but her caulking gun didn't work. During the dance at the wedding party, the mosaic was blown apart by the force of the water erupting from underneath.

The legend of it being Aphrodite's fountain was again resurrected, as the people danced in the water. With Aphrodite being the goddess of love, it was presumably Donna's reunion with her true love that caused the fountain to erupt.
10. Donna and the Dynamos entertained us in disco gear at the girls' party. Did we ever see the three men dressed in disco costumes?

Answer: Yes

After the movie was over (and Sophie and Sky sailed away in the dark) we were again entertained by Donna and the Dynamos, in their disco gear, singing "Dancing Queen". At the end of the song Donna looked into the camera and asked if we wanted another one.

They started singing "Waterloo" and were joined part way through by the three men, also singing and looking pretty silly in their colourful and ruffled disco outfits. Those of you who left the movie right after it ended would not know this.
