Walking on Sunshine
Reminiscent of generic karaoke background videos
July 8, 2015
A young English woman arrives in Italy for her sister’s wedding only to find that Sis’ intended is the hunk she loved and left three years earlier. So what do they do? They sing about it. Just to know where we stand: I actually liked Mamma Mia. I know; surprised me, too.
But the only entertainment value here is watching with horror as bad actors shoehorn nightmarish covers of insipid ’80s pop songs by Cher, Wham!, and George Michael into this shallow narrative.
It reminded me of those generic background videos you see at cheesy karaoke bars. Truly and consistently awful. Japanese title: Odoru I Love You. (97 min)
