I have absolutely adored ABBA for as long as I can remember. My love for them tends to get me some odd looks at times when asked my favorite band, but I don’t really care. Once a fan, always a fan 🙂 Plus, what’s not to love? Excellent music, rockin’ outfits and it’s the music that spurred a theater production and then a movie like no other. The Broadway rendition of Mamma Mia was so good I went to Toronto, Chicago and Grand Rapids to watch it. When the first movie lit up the big screen you know I was there and the same can be said fo Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
Although, where all the time went between movies completely renders me speechless. TEN YEARS, y’all! Ten years between the two movies. I was stunned to realize it had been that long. But, ABBA music is a gift that just keeps giving and I was thrilled to see Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again in the theater.
MY THOUGHTS ABOUT MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN
I really enjoyed the storyline of the movie. It’s a look of what happens after the first movie ends and a look back at what happened before the timeframe of the first movie. It sounds like it wouldn’t work, but it works really well.
I went through all the emotions during the film. I laughed and I cried. I may have sang along, not loudly, but I can’t help myself. If ABBA is playing there is a 99% chance I’m signing.
This movie, just like the first one, stars Pierce Brosnan and ANY movie with him gets my rear in a theater seat. Granted starring in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again may not be a 007 role, but who cares. He is easy on the eyes and fun to watch on the big screen.
You’ll want to watch for cameo roles from two of ABBA’s members: Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson. So much fun looking for their appearance in the movie.
As you can imagine I give the movie two thumbs up and I put the DVD/BlueRay edition on the list of must-have movies for ABBA fans. This edition is a sing-along edition which I LOVE LOVE LOVE.
