This sequel stunk. What an awful story, acting and dancing. Don't waste your time.
Didn't work for me as well as original - maybe part of my aging, etc. - bailed before the end.
Revisit the Greek islands with your favorite music group: Donna and the Dynamos (who primarily feature ABBA tunes). Sophie prepares to continue her mother's legacy with the Hotel Bella Donna while battling a personal crossroads. It'll take her family and friends to guide her as she starts a new chapter.
Not as good as the first very disappointed not worth watching
Best part was the old songs. I wonder did ABBA write the new songs? Waited many months for this remake. The ABBA songs will stay with me forever. They took the world by storm. Cher's two wigs were ridiculous. She best stay away from a flame.
Prequel and sequel of the 2008 original combined in this musical. Nice back story that explains how Donna became a hotelier and why Sophie's dad is undetermined. High lites are the new generation of actors/singers, catchy tunes and the grand entrance of Cher with her act. Don't miss the full set of individual or playlist of videos in bonus "enhanced sing-alongs."
If you like this musical as much as I do, check out the time-capsule performances in the 2002 DVD "ABBA The Definitive Collection" (1972 to 1983) plus bonus videos and a picture gallery:
The first time I saw this movie I didn’t think it was as good as the first but after the fourth time I’ve changed my opinion and love it just as much as the first. Loved seeing all the old characters and enjoyed songs I hadn’t heard before. I also liked finding out about Donna’s younger years and how she got to where she was in the first movie.
I really liked it (except the for the new songs). Cher steals the picture and can really sing, unlike Merle Streep and the others. The girl (Lily James) who plays young Merle is wonderful and a beauty who can sing also. The cast, like MM 1 looks like they are having a blast. Also made me teary a bit because I'm in that age group and feeling What If? like they do.
Not as good as the first, but still a fun movie.
I remember reading a review when this movie came out that basically said resistance is futile--just have fun! I have to agree. These actors have weathered very well and it's fun to see them back (dead or alive) and to see the flashbacks with their younger versions. Songs are the main attraction here (along with that perfect setting) and although there are B sides, overall they are catchy as ever. The best recommendation I can give is that I didn't think about our crazy political environment for a precious 90 minutes while this was on. So don't think too much and just enjoy!
