Trivia

During the Waterloo scene, the barman was played by Parsifal James Hurst. He was actually supposed to have had a more active part in the movie, but prior to filming, he damaged his Achilles tendon, and so spent the entire filming wearing a "moonboot". See more »

23 April 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is a musical sequel that has a stretched story focusing on the young Donna and how she encountered her three men. Even though we did see those scenes in the first movie.

The film starts with Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) refurbishing her Greek island Hotel. Donna has passed away. Sky is in New York learning the hotel business and things do not seem to be going well between them.

For the grand opening of the hotel in honour of her mother, Sophie has invited her three dads and her mother's best friends.

The main part of the story is seeing the young Donna (Lily James) travelling through Europe after graduating at university. Some of the scenes switch with that of Sophie.

It required three writers to come up with the story concept. The story is admittedly thin. The new songs are ok. Cher just looks odd when she makes her belated appearance as Sophie's grandmother. She looks like someone who has just turned up for the pay cheque and decided to do an album of Abba covers out of it.

The Abba songs keep it entertaining but this movie stinks of a cash grab.
