And I love ABBA, I promise you I do, I know all their songs, I used to sing them while washing dishes when I was young, but I don’t think I can take this movie. I didn’t see the last one, maybe it’s excellent, maybe I should go back, perhaps you can convince me. After all, I used to listen to their greatest hits on road trips with my dad; I credit him and things like that for making me into a renaissance man who can enjoy musical theatre just as much as pro football. But I’m also a film critic, and these stories seem too cheesy to be allowed. I do adore Lily James though, so maybe I can be tempted to give the original a chance so that I can watch the sequel and enjoy her immense talent. We’ll see.
