Is this film as good as the original? No, but listen - we don’t tolerate Richard Curtis hate of any form, but did Richard watch the first movie before making this one? I don’t think so. It makes no sense.
However, if you forget all of the mistakes (the timeline of meeting the men, Donna has a mother that has come back to life AND the men don’t look anything like those flashbacks from the first movie) it’s a fun little movie with more ABBA bops.
What do you mean, “you hate La La Land”? It’s such a blanket statement, “you don’t like La La Land”. I just think that people, when they say, y’know, they hate La La Land... they just... they don’t... have context. They don’t know where it comes from.
It’s a brilliant ode to the classics and to “the biz” (🤢), and I don’t want to hear otherwise. It does forget it’s a musical about halfway through, but I’ll allow it.
