Review: Does ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ improve on the original? ABBA-solutely!

Everything old is shockingly, stirringly new again in "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again," the rare sequel so unexpectedly enchanting that it plays less like a rehash than a reclamation. It may take you a moment to understand why, or how, this could be the case. The title alone feels like a winking admission that, as with nearly every Hollywood cash cow that suddenly fancies itself a franchise, we're basically in store for more of the same.
