Mamma Mia in any incarnation just shoots out beams of happiness. Like truly, if you're not enjoying Dancing Queen, do you even understand joy?! I'm looking at YOU, miserable man who walked out during the most iconic song!!!
Anyhow, we all knew Donna was going to die but I mean, can we please get an explanation of why? Or how? Was literally sobbing she didn't get to be around for her grandchild's life or spend more time with her true love Sam.
Ahem. Young Donna's suitors were quite the handsome bunch. No wonder her journal was filled with all those dot dot dots...
And have to say, the prequel was my favorite part of the sequel. Lily James is absolutely RADIANT throughout and her rendition of Mamma Mia broke my heart.
This movie just makes me feel ebullient and I wish I could sing the soundtrack I'm blasting in my earphones out loud at work but that would be weird so I'll just continue casually tapping my foot instead tomorrow.
