No one ever asked for a sequel (or prequel) to Mamma Mia! and yet, here we are, with Universal Pictures releasing Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, the newest installment of the musical franchise that has a penchant for breaking out in song and dance to ABBA. And here is the surprising thing about that hybrid sequel and prequel. It’s actually good. No, scratch that, it’s really good.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is the film you can’t help but tap your foot to when the music feels good, and cry to when there’s a ballad to be sung. Though the story may be some white noise, the cast has fun with the material they are given. But the true standout is Lily James, who shines with a spirited energy that is so infectious, you can’t help but join in on the fun. Check out the full review below.

Rumors that 62-year-old actress Cher was in discussions to play the role of Catwoman in a third Batman movie, to be directed by Christopher Nolan, have turned out to be entirely false. The rumor, which was started by the Telegraph on Sunday, stated that Cher was in talks and that she would join a cast including Johnny Depp as the Riddler.
The Telegraph quoted a studio executive as saying, “Cher is Nolan’s first choice to play Catwoman. He wants to her [sic] to portray her like a vamp in her twilight years.”
However, upon seeing this rumor, I immediately contacted WB and asked them to confirm or deny this story; it seemed nothing short of ridiculous. The response I got was clean cut:
