Movie Review: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Release date: July 20th, 2018

Rating: PG-13

Hey cupcakes! A few weeks before finals, my university showed Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again for FREE. I had never seen it when it was in theaters, so a group of my friends went.... And we had a blast! :D Sure, the movie is many things: cheesy, silly, but an all around good time!

The original Mamma Mia was quite the movie when it came out, and I think this sequel did a really great job of sticking to the same over-the-top format. I enjoyed seeing the back story on Donna, but parts of the story were way to much to believe (but honestly, that made the movie even more entertaining). Like who knew CHER of all people would step out of a helicopter towards the end?!

I loved how the cast was basically doubled with the "younger" versions of the characters from the first film, and I even loved how they added in some hilarious background characters... Alexio and Apollonia will especially have a special place in my heart haha. :P

Just like the first, the ABBA music was seamlessly intertwined with the plot, and my friends and I really enjoyed singing along. :P I also thought that this movie was hilarious just because of how cheesy it is (and the dance moves are just goalssss). It was a great way to relieve some stress with lots of laughter!

Overall, if you liked the first Mamma Mia I would recommend checking this one out! I especially loved the "Super Trouper" ending during the credits where the old and new cast got to interact together:

While it isn't the best cinematic movie of all time, I thoroughly enjoyed it :) What did you think about Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again? Comment below and don't forget to follow The Chic Cupcake to never miss another post!
