Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018)
Great Film overall
Good movie but grossly overrated
By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
So, I've literally NEVER written a movie review but this movie has had me smiling all night. From the first scene and hours after, it made me feel so dang HAPPY. Which is what I think most of us want out of the movies. Lilly James is amazing. I wanted to watch her sing and dance all night. The young men all were great. All the old cast was hilarious! It will make you laugh and cry but mostly it will make you forget about the real world. This is the most fun I've ever had at the movies.
Whilst the plot is a bit slow at first and the emphasis does seem to be more on the visuals, it definitely picks up. With a film like this you have enter knowing you aren't getting an oscar winning storyline that will change your life, as that's not the kind of film it's made to be. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again aims to be a light-hearted, feel-good film where you can watch the actors let loose and dance around to Abba songs and it hits that mark. Provided you don't enter the cinema with your expectations through the roof, this is a film that will put a smile on you face (and possibly bring you to tears as the scene where Donna and Sophia reunite briefly did to me). Stop thinking that every film has to have 300 layers of meaning to be worth a watch and enjoy this cheesy, bright movie.
Brilliant funny sad uplifting film. Loved all the songs. Well acted. My most favourite part was the fact that a lady in a wheelchair was grooving away with the cast during waterloo. Much respect to whoever it was that included a disabled person, as I am also in a wheelchair
The ending bought out Meryl who can't sing and sucks the air from the room with her poison hate politics. The plot of the first one was a girl is so loose she doesn't know the father of her baby, so she picks the last three dudes to ride in her Uber. Then she goes to a Greek Island to hide from responsibility. This movie picks up with that baby walking in her mom's footsteps by opening a hotel on the island. I was bored. Them music was awesome. It kept me awake, waiting for the next song. The dancing was High School at best. The film can best be summed up by a quote from one of its stars, Pierce Brosnan whom I like very much, "I am not a great singer or dancer but figured I could do as well as the next guy." Instead of watching this just dig out your ABBA greatest hits CD and listen to it.
