DVD Review – December 2016 – Mark David Hatwood

absolutely-fabulousAbsolutely Fabulous: The Movie – Starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, Directed by Mandie Fletcher

Publicist Edina Monsoon and best friend Patsy Stone are still shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hot spots. While attending an elite party, they wind up knocking supermodel Kate Moss into the River Thames. Her untimely demise creates a media firestorm, leading the paparazzi to relentlessly pursue the hapless duo. Seeking refuge, the gals flee to the French Riviera where they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever.

Unfortunately, this is one of those occasions that a full length version of a superb TV series doesn’t cut the mustard. It starts well, but falls into a bit of a stereotypical (for them) mush so leaves much to be desired.

Verdict: Stay at home and revisit the excellent TV series. **

This film will be shown at The Harbour Club, Portscatho on Monday 5th December.
