Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

July 20, 2018
Worth the price of admission alone, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again features an ending sequence—duly noted to avoid spoilers—so gloriously outrageous that it reminds us just how much this near-franchise is flirtatiously winking at us. This sequel blends the old and familiar from the first film, [...]
