Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

{4.5/5} “I just want to be upfront and say that I visually enjoy you.”

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, released in 2018

Sophie has fixed up the hotel in Greece that her mother fell in love with. She’s throwing a big party to open it. Her mom has passed away but everyone else will be there — her boyfriend, her 3 dads, her mom’s 2 best friends. And a surprise visit from her grandmother.

This is a sequel to Mamma Mia! The story might feel a tiny bit contrived at times, in order to fit the ABBA songs. But if you liked the first one you’ll like this one.

Unusually, the 2nd half is better than the 1st half. The songs are, of course, amazing.

It’s funny and moving.

Meryl Streep and Cher both have small but important parts.

Stars Lily James, Christine Baranski, and Julie Waters. Directed by Ol Parker (Now Is Good).
