Added DiffLines:

* EasilyForgiven: Nobody seems to mind that Sophie abruptly cancels the wedding, especially her fiancé.
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: Just how many of those songs actually advance the story or tell us something important about the characters?

* AmbiguousTimePeriod: The film came out in 2008, though signs point to the events taking place in the '90s, which makes sense since the original stage musical premiered in 1999. 20-year-old Sophie is explicitly said to have been conceived "at the end of flower power", i.e. 1969-1972. Harry's relationship with Donna ran during The Sex Pistols' early career with Decca and Virgin - 1975. Sophie being 20 would place the action in 1995.

Harry's relationship with Donna ran the early sixties to late seventies. This and the fact that the musical seems to take place during The Sex Pistols' early career internet adoption time, what with Decca and Virgin - 1975. Sophie being 20 would place Sky's advertising venture, clocks the action in 1995.at the early to mid nineties.

* AnachronismStew: Most glaringly, although the film is apparently set in the early 2000s, 20-year-old Sophie is explicitly said to have been conceived "at the end of flower power", i.e. 1969-1972. And even this is contradicted - early Net adoption was in 1993-1995 in the UK. This may lock closer to Sophie's age and Sky's advertising venture.
** Harry's relationship with Donna ran during The Sex Pistols' early career with Decca and Virgin - 1975. Sophie being 20 would place the action in 1995 - early Net adoption time.

* ButNotTooGay: [[spoiler: Harry]] and his boyfriend gets maybe half a minute of screentime, on a generous count.

* ButNotTooGay: [[spoiler: Harry]] and his boyfriend gets maybe half a minute of screentime, on a generous count. That, and Harry is clearly bisexual rather than gay.
