Just another Cash Cow Sequel-
31 August 2018 | by tm-sheehanSee all my reviews

Mother always said "If you can't say anything nice ,say nothing " but I'm glad say,I didn't always do what I was told and yes, I can think of two nice reasons to see this film Scenery and Cher, apart from that it's pretty bad. Silly inane script, that could have been written with more skill by high school students . It's just a string of dialogue with lines like "be still my beating vagina" put together to fit the most unknown ABBA songs not used in the first Mama Mia film . Most of the singers like Pierce Brosnan are inadequate although I Iiked Lily James , who plays the young Meryl Streep character. Lily is a good musical performer , an acting singing and dancing all rounder and I'd like to see her in a great musical film, perhaps as Elphaba in Wicked. The few choreographed chorus numbers like Dancing Queen and Fernando are the only musical numbers that worked for me. Is History Repeating Itself? In the Depression years of the late 1920's and 1930's many sub standard musicals and some of the greatest film musicals were produced to cheer up audiences in a gloomy world that craved fantasy and escape from the harsh reality of the times. These musicals like Wonder Bar and Roberta also interpolated hit songs of the era to fit into thin romantic plots and often starred the box office giants of the day like Al Jolson and Eddie Cantor. The difference today is this movie cost 75 million dollars to make and the quality is no better than the little cheer up musical films that cost a tiny fraction of this budget nearly ninety years ago. Even arguably the greatest musical movies like Singing in the Rain only cost 2.5 million dollars to produce and The Sound of Music 8.2 million dollars to make so at 75 million for Mama Mia 2 I think we're not getting value for money as far as I'm concerned. I'm hoping Disney will put much more effort into Mary Poppins Returns to be seen later this year. I'm sure they will as it has a great musical director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Into The Woods ) and a great cast including Meryl Streep , who does have a lovely voice and Colin Firth , who doesn't. This movie is colourful fun but the old saying sequels rarely work is true in this case, it's just a cash cow to milk from the success of the original movie. If you don't like musical films you'll hate this if you do love musical films you may also hate this.
