This is a lighthearted rumination - I'm planning on going to see MM2 in a couple of weeks but am wondering how on earth I can enjoy the film and not be sidetracked by Cher's face! Thought she sounded odd on the recording of Fernando - sort of restricted somehow - and after seeing her interviewed at the premiere I realised that her face is so tight that she can't move her mouth properly!

Obviously it wont exactly spoil the film for me but I wondered if anyone else had noticed or am I being incredibly bitchy about someone i've never met?!! All the reports seem to be of the "doesn't she look wonderful for her age" variety Grin

Well she is 72 and has had loads of work done, her wig collection is huge, and her mother is 92 and looks 65; so it’s a mixture of plastic surgery and genes. If I had her money, I’d probably do the same tbh.

Just enjoy the film. Cher doesn’t appear until 15 minuets before the end and only sings one song.

We went to the pictures at lunchtime to see it and absolutely loved it


BigcatLittlecat · 21/07/2018 00:51

It was brilliant! We laughed, cried and sang along!

I wept through most of it (peri-menopause I think) but I did enjoy it. I'm not sure Cher's face is made of human skin though.

She is only in it briefly, face is indeed solid plastic and she has problems moving too, but her singing was good if you like Cher’s voice/style and if you don’t it’s not much of the film.

Saw it last night. IMO Cher brought nothing to the film or storyline and just looked creepy.
I missed 'Donna' being in the film but obviously that was part of the story.
There are a few anomolies, but I guess that's the writer's prerogative to change things.
On the whole I really rnjoyed it and the young versions of the main characters were fabulously cast, absolutely perfect.

I agree with everything Fire said about the film. After it ended everyone cheered and clapped. I don't think I have seen this at a film before.

I didn't even know Cher was in it. She looks so wooden these days.

I saw it yesterday and it was wonderful, I laughed and cried. It's better than the first one.

I nearly lost my shit when Cher appeared Grin

I saw it last week and loved it.

Everyone in the cinema was singing along and at the end everyone clapped. It was fab

I loved it. Especially loved with wee Greek guy looking at their passports and telling them how he preferred them. Can't wait to go back x

I saw it at the weekend and blubbed through most of it! OK, there were occasional funny bits, but it's a weepie. Or at least for us 50-somethings whose mothers are dead or very unwell and for whom Abba is the soundtrack to our childhood and adolescence. I cried several times, but full-on sobbing when Meryl Streep was singing My Love My Life.

If you haven't seen it yet, don't leave the cinema until the end of the credits. I didn't because I was in no fit state, but even if you're not a sodden mess there's a lovely blooper right at the end worth staying for.

Lottapianos · 25/07/2018 11:57

Her face really is quite something! She's completely fabulous though so I don't care. The film is bonkers but very funny and very enjoyable, and that's from someone who cringed hard all the way through the first film
