Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie
Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamor, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London's trendiest hot-spots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!

Quite simply absolutely fabulous!
I'm from someone who is a massive fan of the TV series, the film didn't
disappoint. No it's not particularly original, nor is it the best
comedy Saunders herself has written, but this film is so feel good you
can't help but grin, giggle and laugh-out-loud throughout. The film is brisk and whips by very quickly. Though the story is often
disjointed, it's not where the film goes it's what happens while you're
there. Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders are just a joy to watch and
there's a ton of fan service as practically everyone who has ever been
in the show makes an appearance here. I came out of the cinema grinning ear to ear, which oddly not all
comedies manage to do. It was like going for meal with an old friend
that always makes you laugh. If you weren't a fan of the show steer well clear - this is not a film
for you. To those that did enjoy the show it's a must see. No it's not
going to win any awards (though Joanna Lumley is such a terrific comedy
actress), nor is it going to challenge the convention of comedy, but it
is going to make you happy. Isn't that comedy was created for? Absolutely Fabulous Sweetie Darling!
I'm a fan of the show, big fan of the movie!
I have loved Ab Fab from day one, back in 1992 and have a boxset I
sometimes still dig out and watch when I have time. Last night I chose
to watch the movie over watching Wales win their way to their first
semi final ever in the Euros. That's how much I love the series and had
been looking forward to the film hitting the cinema!I love the characters Eddy and Patsy - always thought Jennifer Saunders
is hilarious, even when she was still doing French and Saunders. Joanna
Lumley looks fantastic though and what a great actress with perfect
comedy timing at 70! - and this movie delivers its familiar in your
face parody of the fashion scene and PR business, showing how
pretentious they are with sharp satire. It returned to everything that
was witty in the first few series, with outrageous behaviour from the
lead characters. I may be biased because I am such a huge fan, so if you love the series
like I do, you won't be disappointed.
It's the best, darling!
I have been waiting for this movie for a long time and it did not
disappoint! I am a huge fan of the TV series. I am addicted to it. So I
missed them. I missed Patsy, Edina and the gang. Going to the cinema
was like visiting old friends. All of them are there, everybody. Big
names, you know; and again they make you laugh like if nothing has
changed. Lights! Models! Guest list! It was the best, darling! The only issue was that I was only allowed 2 bottles of wine in the
cinema!! Do they know who we were going to see?! ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!

Better Than What I Thought
Just seeing this duo lights up my eyes and I was so worried the film
version just wouldn't cut it... Think Mrs Browns Boys, or Sex And The
City.I'd compare it to SpiceWorld The Movie (ridiculousness, OTT, and
NUMEROUS cameos) mixed with a UK Version of The Hangover (Drunken mess,
lots of alcohol and sticky situations).I saw a review where they said the funniness wanes when the cast head
to France but this was actually my favourite part. Good ending too.Only drawback...It all went pear-shaped a bit too quickly.. they could
have dragged it out just a LITTLE longer and the 'happy ending' just
seemed to come together very quickly! WORST PART : WHY DID THEY RE-DO THE FAMOUS THEME TUNE WITH KYLIE EFFING
MINOGUE! not happy about that!! :(
