Pure fun and escapism, with Abba’s songs and a cast that are obviously enjoying themselves as much as the audiences in this sequel.
The story goes back in time to discover Donna’s past, with Meryl Streep, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth et al reprising their roles, plus Lily James as young Donna, and Cher’s cameo stealing the film. Enjoy!
The Guardian: "But I simply can’t imagine how Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again could be any better than it is. I loved it to pieces and I can’t wait to go again!." (5 stars)
The Daily Mail: "How could you resist barnstorming Abba sequel Mamma Mia! 2, with super-trouping performances from Lily James, Colin Firth and Cher." (4 stars)
The Times: "An unexpected 11th-hour cameo, meanwhile, delivers some genuine emotional heft. Soft and understated, it gathers all the lightly laid themes of grief, death and rebirth into a valedictory moment of sublime heart-breaking kitsch. It is, in typical Abba fashion, irresistible." (4 stars)
