Mamma Mia!

We went to see Mamma Mia 2 a couple of days ago. Our daughters had been dying to see this sequel, having loved the first film, so the anticipation was high.

The movie was good to watch -- very easy on the eye, pretty locations and, of course, fun songs. Lily James was excellent as young Donna and it was great to see Meryl Streep performing again, albeit for a short period of time.

The downside was that Mamma Mia 2 is very low on plot compared to its predecessor. It really does seem like the producers are just looking for an excuse to repeat the box office success of the first film.

Still, if you can suspend your disbelief for a couple of hours and concentrate on the music and images alone, then this is an entertaining enough way to while away an evening.
