As if you didn’t already feel old, did you know that it has been a decade since the film Mamma Mia came out? Yes, ten years to the month, folks. I can however assure you that the sequel, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (released on the 18th of July 2018) does not disappoint!
I am going to admit something, but it is not intended as a disclaimer so please do not receive it as such. I am a fan of musicals. Am I fan of all musicals? No, so when I tell you that I spent the whole movie jiving in my seat, that I left the theatre dancing and that days later I am still listening to the soundtrack, take my word for it, I am truly obsessed with this movie.
This is honestly such a feel-good movie. It’s a story about defying expectations, choosing adventure over safety and creating one’s own destiny. Add an ABBA soundtrack and a stellar cast, including, amongst others, Lily James, Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper, and can you really go wrong? This is a rhetorical question because no, you cannot.
I know that movies are expensive, but if you are even considering it, please go and watch this one. It is a gem and most importantly, a fun time. Call me sentimental, but anything that makes me feel like dancing is worthwhile.
