trey northcutt’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was one of my aunt's favorite movies, and I really didn't understand why until I grew up. So much of this movie's story could have been seen in my aunt's life - especially the relationship between Donna and Sophie, and Donna and her best friends. Because of this, I can't help but look at this with a positive outlook. The film is meant to be silly, and that isn't a bad thing. So much in life we get bogged down in the every day, mundane troubles that we need this kind of joyous escapism. Not only that, but the soundtrack is absolutely iconic. Yeah, some of the leads can't sing, and it's a bit of an issue, but Meryl Streep makes up for it tenfold. Everything is just so happy that you can't help but be in a good mood.
Can't wait to honor my Aunt Lisa's memory when I see the sequel tomorrow.
