Hundred-Word Review – “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” (2018)

 

Having never watched the supposed train wreck that was “Mamma Mia!,” I went in to this with zero expectations and only having heard a few ABBA songs. The result was a fine time with a few heavy moments that I did not expect to see here, especially with its almost “Godfather Part II”-like storytelling and editing, juxtaposing the conflicts and loves of the mother against the success and affection of her daughter. Maybe it is because of the lack of musicals nowadays, but the elaborate dance numbers and genuine passion for song elevates this far more than it normally would.

Final Grade: B-
