"I think it's always like, 'I'm so in love, so that person must be so in love with her, too.' I assume everyone's in love with Tommy because I'm in love with him".
The number itself is staggering, but it's not hard to see how she earned it. Cher has been working diligently in the spotlight since her teens.
But Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again doesn't quite achieve the same intoxicating sense of nostalgia-drenched delirium.
The 2008 film version of the hit musical featuring Abba songs was a box office triumph and 10 years later the follow-up Mamma Mia! Through a series of flashbacks, Sophie learns more about her mother's past and each of the love stories that drove the first film. Her daughter Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is left to carry on her legacy without her wild and vivacious mother, or her man Sky (Dominic Cooper) for that matter. Her energy is contagious, her charisma is infectious, and her singing was not half bad!
From the moment we hear the thrum of the chart-topping diva's private helicopter approaching Kalokairi, Parker's film cranks up the volume on our pleasure to 11 and blows the roof off the taverna with her rapturous interpretation of Fernando with fellow newcomer Andy Garcia. We haven't even gotten to Cher yet, who arrives like a benevolent rock deity and turns the last 20 minutes of the film into a personal concert.
It was revealed in late 2017 that she would join the cast of Mamma Mia! Go ahead and treat yourself to this raucous seaside summer confection, you deserve it.
