Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I was pretty late to the Mamma Mia! party – I only saw the first film last year. It was great fun, the cast delivered amazing chemistry and Streep owned it. So take all those things away (at least for the first hour) and you end up with Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again… a lifeless sequel that only starts to be good again when the film remembers that it should be more fun than maudlin. Look Lily James does an amazing job as a young Streep but Seyfried is so whiny and the story so redundant (we kinda know how she ended up with three dads already) that you just don’t really care. So overall a disappointing sequel.
Best Bit: The boats arrive (and the fun!)
