A girl is going to get married and decides she wants her father to be in her wedding and to walk her down the aisle. Nevertheless she doesn't know who her father is. She comes across her mother's diary and discovers that there are three different men who could be her father so she invites the three of them....
It's a film in which the main characters are starred by women. It's a funny and sad movie. Those 3 men arrive at the Greek Island and the girl's mother sees them again. She had an affair with all of them during a summer a long time ago. Now her past is back and she must deal with it.
It's worth watching this movie because of the actresses, the music and songs, the choreography, the scenes... On the other hand there is just something I dislike: Pierce Brosnan singing. He is not good at it though he must have tried his best. Anyway, it is something we can forgive him after all his other performances as, for example, in Remington Steele, The Tailor of Panama, The Fourth Protocol, or the James Bond films.
