Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016)

Director: Mandie Fletcher

Stars: Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Jane Horrocks, Julia Sawalha, Mo Gaffney, Lulu, Graham Norton, Chris Colfer, Stella McCartney, Kate Moss, Emma Bunton, Jon Hamm, Rebel Wilson

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.

Edina accidently pushes Kate Moss off of a balcony into the river down below. I mean it sounds like something that would really happen to her. The whole incident made for a good story. The idea of Edina on the run in for murder with Patsy tearing up the South of France.

This movie was not adding any new information to the series for the movie, like so many like to do. This was like watching a long episode of the show. The writing was still there along with the characters still staying true to who they are. There were not real surprises in this movie. The movie was just an extension of the show.

The best part of the entire movie was that the entire cast came back for the movie. You did not have that random person playing a another role in the movie, just because someone would not bring back their role. I was so happy about that. These characters are some of the best written. Even many of the celebrities that were on the show did a cameo in the movie. That is was part of the reason of the success of the movie.

If you loved the show, then you will really enjoy the movie. I was not disappointed at all in this movie. It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be. This is one of those movies that if you are a fan of the show, you need to add this movie to your private collection. Enjoy.
