Mamma Mia is the global smash hit that we’ve all heard of. This summer in July, we saw the eventual release of Mamma Mia 2, the long-awaited sequel that was just as popular and successful as the original. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is the musical comedy that brings us back to a classic time where musical romantic comedies were everywhere. ]Featuring big names such as Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Christine Baranski and Lily James, it’s a must-see movie that we can’t recommend enough!
Mamma Mia 2’s Special Guest Appearance
But did you know that there’s a special guest in Mamma Mia 2 that you might’ve missed? Unless you’ve been active on social media and looking at the news, you probably missed the fact that Cher is in the film! Playing the role of supporting character Ruby Sheridan (who was actually inspired by Cher herself!), she’s the grandmother of Sophie Sheridan and mother of Donna Sheridan-Carmichael, the central character of the original 2008 Mamma Mia.
This pleasant surprise has actually spurred many people to go see Mamma Mia this summer. So if you love seeing Cher on the big screen and would be delighted to see her perform songs in the film, then you absolutely need to see this film!
But of Course, People Always Have Things to Complain About
Unfortunately, not everyone is happy about the release of a new Mamma Mia film. As per the internet, there’s a hashtag going around #NoMammaMia2 that is surprisingly popular at around 53.4% of votes on some websites. Many people think that Mamma Mia 2 makes no sense and that there are far too many inconsistencies with the first movie.
However, that’s to be expected when you remember that the original Mamma Mia came out as a movie in 2008, but was based on a 1999 musical of the same name. When you realize just how old the story is, it’s amazing to think that almost 20 years after the original musical, we’d actually get a sequel that uses the same characters!
Mamma Mia 2 Is Nostalgic in Every Way
However, Mamma Mia 2 brings us back a decade to when Mamma Mia was the hottest film of the year. Great music, a romantic story full of comedic notes and a wonderful cast of characters. It’s free from the nonsense that you see in a lot of movies today and, regardless of what people think of Mamma Mia 2, it’s a great film that we can recommend that you watch.
It Also Makes for a Perfect Date Activity!
In fact, Mamma Mia 2 makes for a fantastic date film. If you’re tired of going to bars and pubs or fancy restaurants, then why not suggest going to see Mamma Mia 2 for your next date? It recently came out and it’s a blast, especially if you loved the first film. If this is your first time even hearing of Mamma Mia, then we urge you to see the first film as well! While it might not be showing in cinemas, you can easily find a copy of it online or even watch it in the comfort of your own home, making it perfect for a romantic night in!
