Was a fun movie with great songs by ABBA. (The person that said in their review that there was too much ABBA music is a real dumbass! It IS an ABBA-written musical and you must have been living under a rock since the musicals debut years ago,) The plot was too jumpy and hard to follow, who was married to whom, who's dead/alive, who's that character and what involvement in the plot, which made it tedious to watch at times. Cher was her usually campy self in her cameo and her one liner zinger "That's what grandmother's do, little girl!" was priceless. Cher can be my granny any day! A cute not great film, a great evening out, and you don't need to think about what's going on, just enjoy it.
This is a pretty bad movie. How could it have gotten any good reviews? From the horrid opening "number" you get a feeling you wasted your money, something that is confirmed by the even sillier ending with Maryl Steep as ...a painting over the new inn's fireplace (!) ...and then a ghost at a wedding? Cher has to wear a cheap blond wig since she looks nothing like the petite blond daughter or granddaughter. Ex lovers arrive as if by a fleet? The scenery and some musical numbers are fun, but the story and acting is an embarrassment to all involved.
Frankly it was disturbing.
It’s casting location and storyline encourages family ties!!! Excellent...funny and heart warming!
While the music was great, the plot was very poor.
Loved the music, great show puts u in your happy place 😁
Caution..... this movie is addictive! It sounds like I am not the only one to have seen it more than once. And I enjoy it more each time. Probably go again very soon as I need a Happy Fix.
I really loved the movie and like people say, if you are down in the dumps, this is a very good movie to see. It really lift your spirits and I keep on going to see it until it doesn't play in the theaters. I even pre-ordered the first and this one when it comes out on the DVD. Who wouldn't love this movie.
wrong movie for me. find very boring.
Enjoyable sequel very much in the spirit of Grease 2 but with lesser music.
First one was great! Music good! Cold have left Cher out out out
Great music. Nostalgic needs are met. Cher and Meryl seemed stilted and in the wrong movie. Overall very enjoyable.
I would see it again and again. I love musicals!
It is very happy to see the beautiful country where it was made, but there are nutty things...like the ladies leaving in the end, walking on a long road with suitcases. Also, the gramma has been dead. She was Cher. If you missed the first one it is a blur. I thought the two main characters were sisters. And the ghost at the end was weird. It's really nutty, but done with a consciousness that is appealing and fun, but there are parts that make you crazy.
I must first confess that I dislike almost all musicals. Dragged to this by my wife the next 2 hours was a blend of boredom & mental torture. Different strokes for different folks I say, but if they added a little plot and cut the number of songs down it would improve the movie. Parading old stars that do nothing but walk on is not terribly entertaining either.
My husband and I both loved the story line. Great tunes and what a surprise to see Cher (I forgot she was in the movie). I would see it againnina heartveat
You just kind of have to accept the cheesiness and enjoy it anyways
There was too much Abba music.
Wonderful singing and dancing. Excellent connection to the original movie. very upbeat, and touching at times, especially at the end with the appearance of Meryl Streep. Cannot wait to see it again. You feel uplifted after you see it. I can't say enough about this wonderful movie.
Surprising very well done movie. Great story line, costumes, movie location, acting was great, music , dancing. above and bohong expectations.
everything about it,especially the music.
Everything . location, . fun, music. Cher and Andy Garcia were awesome . I would see it again.
If Cher had been left out it would have been a better movie!
I enjoyed it
I brought my mom to see this movie and she really liked it. It was our first time since they remodeled with the recliners. We both agreed it was amazingly comfortable. We will probably go more often!!
Loved it better than the first
Yeah! Fun and enjoyable
I grew up with Abba and absolutely love their music so loved that part of it, but the storyline was lovely, the singing was excellent and loved the cameos by Benny and Bjorn :)
I loved it!!!!
Really well done..I would recommend this movie to anyone!!!
Loved it...very entertaining and uplifting...definitely worth it
I love it and so does my kids
Couldn’t sit thru this one!
Okay but nearly as good as the first one. Cher’s performance was a little painful to watch.
Wonderful and surprising. Every bit as good as the first!
Absolutely loved this movie!!! Hope to see #3 soon. Cher was fantastic
Loved the music, lyrics, & dancing & fact it is non violent & full of trash talk.
These movies would be more watchable without the awful songs.
Phenomenal!!! I laughed and cried - it was a fantastic movie and I would see it again and again! The music of course was great and the cast was perfect. Loved it!!
