I recently went to watch Mamma Mia Here We Go Again and I thought I’d share my review on the movie with you all. I’m sure many of you may have already seen it but for those who haven’t, reading this may help you decide if it’s worth seeing!
When I watched the first Mamma Mia film I wasn’t so keen on it. I mean Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan’s singing is slightly terrible.. but it’s features music that basically everyone knows the words to, ABBA!
10 years later they’ve released Mamma Mia 2, I was interested to go watch it to see if it would be any good. Sometimes bringing out sequels can be a bit disappointing. However, with this film I wasn’t disappointed! I really enjoyed watching it and found it to be a massive improvement from the first movie.
A brief overview..
Mamma Mia 2 tells the story of how mother Donna met her daughters 3 potential fathers and how she travelled Europe and started her life on a beautiful Greek island after graduation.
Of course this film isn’t complete without songs from ABBA and features a few songs that aren’t as well known. What I love about the music is it fits in so well with the storylines. And in this second movie most of the actors are a lot better at singing!
Lily James who plays a young Donna steals the show, amazing acting and a brilliant singer too! They did amazing choosing the younger actors who played the young versions of Bill, Harry, Sam and Donna’s best friends; Rosie and Tanya. In particular the young version of Tanya looked so similar to her older self!
Of course we can’t go without saying how emotional and beautiful it got towards the end. I won’t say too much for those who haven’t seen it but you may need some tissues!
Of course the film is super cheesy but who doesn’t love a bit of cheese ay?! It’s such a feel good movie and I hugely recommend watching it if you love ABBA music and musicals!
Have you seen the movie? What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments!
