Review by Dawn:
Over the weekend I went and saw this movie with my best friends daughter, after our mani/pedi’s this was the perfect movie to top off our girls day!! The first one I saw bits and pieces but knew the basic premise so you really don’t have to see the first one to see this one, but you may want to because they both are so cute!
Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is the daughter of Donna (Meryl Streep) who has since passed away, not a spoiler alert its a big premise of this movie which you already know from previews!! There are flashbacks telling the story of Donna when she was younger and how she came to this island in Greece and how Sophie has ended up with 3 different dads. While at the same time showing Sophie present day living out her Moms dreams and having somewhat parallel lives..
Trust me if its sounding boring it isn’t lol!! The stories are told in a non confusing way with yes duh lots of singing!! There wasn’t a slow moment at all. Its a really fun, silly movie! Speaking of silly…Cher is in the move as the Grandmother whats silly about that??!! With all the plastic surgery she’s had, (her face could barely move) she looked younger than her own daughter (Meryl Streep) and her daughters friends, that was a bit of a stretch for sure lol!! If you like musicals and you want to see something lighthearted and entertaining this would be it, I give it a thumbs up for sure!!
