As you may know, my last blog post was about the original Mamma Mia movie. From my comments, I saw that many people loved that movie, so I decided to talk about the sequel. Mamma Mia 2 came out this past summer and everyone who has seen the first one was scrambling to go watch it. It takes place a few years later and continuously switches back from the past and present. In the present, Sophie has redone her mother’s small hotel and is having a grand re-opening. She invited all her old friends and her three “dads” to come visit the island. In the past, it shows the story of a young version of her mother, Donna, meeting each one of Sophie’s possible fathers and discovering herself in her post-college years. This movie includes some of the amazing songs from the first movie along with some new ones. I thought the sequel was just as amazing as the first movie, and I highly recommend watching it!
If you’re looking for a fun movie to jump around and dance to, this is the one for you. Mamma Mia is a musical movie featuring hits by ABBA. It tells the story of a young woman, Sophie, wanting to find the identity of her father before she gets married to her fiance, Sky. She finds a journal that her mother, Donna (portrayed by Meryl Streep), used to keep and discovers three possible men that could be her father. She invites all three of them (Sam, Harry, and Bill) to come to her wedding on a small, beautiful island in Greece. I loved this movie, along with the sequel that came out last summer. It is a really cute musical comedy that will make you want to dance and sing along, and I highly recommend watching it if you ever have a chance!
I highly recommend seeing this family friendly movie with Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne. It is a heartwarming story about a married couple deciding to foster/adopt three children. It shows the reality of the struggles but also the love of building a family. The kids show a lot of resistance at first, but they grow to love their new parents. There is a good balance of humor and seriousness throughout the movie, so it is not too dorky or sad. I really enjoyed this movie and would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a cute family movie to watch.
