Here We Go Again

My favorite Hitchcock film and
probably my favorite film of all time
I went to the movies Wednesday afternoon.

I have not been in a movie theater since 2006 (to see Clerks II with my daughter). Blockbuster and Netflix DVD home delivery have been my friends since then, but the Missus is celebrating another trip around the Sun and wanted to see Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

I am not a big fan of modern musical films basically because I like the music in most of those films (give me a musical film like White Christmas or Holiday Inn filled with Irving Berlin tunes). But I like ABBA's songs, saw Mamma Mia! on Broadway and saw the first Mamma Mia! film, so you did not have to twist my arm to see the new film.

The plot of the film was as contrived as a musical could be (no surprise), but the music was good as was the cinematography. It is definitely a chick flick, so it was a good fit – my eyes even welled up during a couple of scenes.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is a fun film and I recommend it for girls like us.

  1. What I want to know is: was Cher believable as Meryl Streep's mother?

  2. Cher seemed too young to be Streep's mother.

      I haven't seen the film yet, but I think I would have the same impression as you although Cher was an an interesting bit of casting.
