‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’

Absolutely-Fabulous-The-Movie_poster_goldposter_com_3One of the best TV comedy series: ever. One of the worst transfers to the big screen: ever.

Edwina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) are two of the most recognisable characters ever written for TV – the Bollinger-from-the-bottle guzzling Patsy in particular. Their travails through the fashion world are legendary. Their move to the big screen is not.

‘Borrow as much as possible from the TV series’ only works if its funny. And Ab Fab The Movie ain’t. The first funny joke arrived after some 20-25 minutes, the second 10 or so minutes later. And that was about it. So Edwina has been accused of pushing super model Kate Moss to her death, forcing her and Patsy to flee to Cannes. Who cares?

An unmitigated disaster.
