Mama Mia - Here We Go Again

Ok I did say that I would go with a friend to see this one at the cinema, as she was really looking forward to it.  I spent my childhood in the 70s so we had lots and lots of Abba on the stereo and the radio, so I have a bit of a love hate with the songs, as they were never quite my thing, but I do know most of the words to the more popular songs.

This movie is pure cheesy in your face musical.  It is a prequel and sequel to the other movie, telling the backstory about Donna and how she ended up pregnant in Greece, and then her daughters story 10 years on since the earlier movie.  All of the earlier characters are back, although the fathers are looking a lot older and slower, they still slip on the Lycra and do a little dad shuffle. 

I think you are not missing much by not going to the movies and seeing this one - I sense it will be recycled on the television for years to come in the at dry time of Christmas/New Years where we get to see every old musical replayed over and over again.  3/5

I never saw the original, but the sequel sounded forced from the start.
