I’ve been on this musical kick lately, and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again was just what I needed this summer.
With its play on social commentary and awareness of racial issues, this film doesn’t hold back.
I know what to expect: lots of explosions, cheesy one-liners, generic script and “The Rock” being … well, “The Rock.”
We’re thrown back to the beginning of the purge, where we hardly see the person in the poster and are served a script that doesn’t know what to do with itself after the first half-hour.
The writing is messy, jokes are misplaced, actors misused and, boy, that ending.
Let me tell you, there’s a gem and a dud (well, a dud for the most part).
Not even Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s charm from the previous film carries into this bad, bad sequel.
