Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Is The Summer Treat We All Need! Read My Review To Find Out Why...


Good Afternoon Lovelies,

Nearly a week after its release, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is riding high at the top of my summer must-watch list. From the gorgeous Greek scenery to the Abba music that we all know and love, the film is a joy to watch from start to finish. Even if it isn’t entirely perfect.

Sometimes though films aren’t meant to be. They are meant to be the thing that you need at certain moments in life. And with everything happening in our world right now, it is easy to get caught up in the beauty of the easy summer breeze it brings.

Instead of a normal review, I have decided to do a short list on why the film works and key scenes to look out for. All of which I am sure will brighten your Friday with their Abba-solutely fabulous music...
  • Lily James: With so many returning faces, the new cast had a lot to live up to. Especially James who plays a younger Meryl Streep. However, she breezes into the film with a sense that she has always been there and belongs there too. From When I Kissed The Teacher to her last moments on screen, she definitely leaves an impact.
  • Dancing Queen Returns: After the pure joy of the first film’s Dancing Queen scene, the sequel's version definitely makes you smile. Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgård ride in on a boat with a party that holiday companies are now going to have to fight to recreate. Abba music a must here!
  • Cher: Although she doesn’t turn up until quite close to the end, Cher knows how to make a room and more important a whole film notice her. She is, of course, the legend that is Cher and whilst she doesn’t add a lot to the plot, she does make the film a whole lot better for being in it.
  • The Music: Abba is one of those bands that everyone dances to. Whether you hate pop or love it, nothing can stop you from enjoying it. Having used up most of the best in the last film, there are still many recognisable features in this that your toe will be tapping along to.
  • The Return of the Cast: Its hard to believe that it has been 10 years since this cast were first together and it doesn’t feel like it either. Everyone flows back into character with ease and give viewers that feeling of family. It is like we haven’t been away from them! Plus, Julie Walter’s slays everything she is (my personal hero!). 

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again is a winner in so many ways and with the way it brings us all together it is automatically a true gem. We may be enjoying the sunshine outside, but this is the cinematic equivalent and there so I am giving it…
