Mamma maybe

OUT NOW! The cheesy, holiday-rom-com-musical WALKING ON SUNSHINE may be slightly too close to Mamma Mia.

There are a couple of reasons to watch this film about two sisters and their holiday romance gone serious with the same man: the 1980s feel-good vibe of Katrina et al, and the ice-cutting jaw line of Latin lover Giulio Berruti. And maybe one or two flash mob dance scenes. Oh, and maybe Greg Wise’s roguish smirk? You’ll stay in your seat for the duration but comparisons afterwards to Mamma Mia might make you wish you hadn’t.

Walking on Sunshine | Directed by Max Giwa, Dania Pasquini (UK 2014) with Annabel Scholey, Giulio Berruti, Greg Wise. Starts September 25
