Meryl Streep and Cher among stars at premiere of Mamma Mia sequel

Amanda Seyfried SGSeyfried teams up with Christine Baranski and Julie Walters

Here We Go Again was every bit as delightful as the first, fusing the untold, charming story of Donna's past, with the widely assumed guesses about her future.

In the movie, Cher play's Meryl's mother.

Even after their real-life breakup, they stayed friends, good friends, as Seyfried said in a 2013 interview.

Her barbie pink pedicure could be seen through the peep-toe design of her sparkly black stilettos.

B-roll footage from behind the scenes shows Streep embracing Seyfried, singing softly to her in a chapel-like setting.

But something in the sheer relentless silliness and uncompromising ridiculousness of this, combined with a new flavour of self-aware comedy, made me smile in spite of myself: there are amusing, campy performances from Cher, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters and also Alexa Davies as Walters's younger self, and some very good lines.

Cher, 72, portrays Sophie's previously unseen grandmother Ruby Sheridan, Meryl Streep's reluctant and mean mother. "I was thrilled to death, and it was so silly".

The actress confided, "I assume everyone's in love with Tommy because I'm in love with him".




In a sing-off with The Great Showman, this bittersweet return to the sun-kissed Greek island of Kalokairi comes off second best to the razzle dazzle of Hugh Jackman and his kaleidoscopic circus of melodic misfits.

"I laughed out loud many times when I read (the script's first draft)".

But she had no reason to be nervous.

The pop icon recently admitted she was "terrified" when she stepped on to the set for the first time after joining the cast.

"It was fantastic", Streep told E!

However, she declared, that's "just not the case". She's taking the tunes and doing them her way.

"Holy water is Cher and Meryl Streep's shared spit", tweeted one fan.
