Instead of being a veritable 'best of', Kimderella feels, at best, like an average episode of the television series.
You'll likely be looking for distractions to help make the time pass quicker. The obvious choice would be to keep count of all the hackneyed catch phrases, though I found tallying the repeated shots of exposed butt-cracks to be more fruitful.
There is a tangible sense that Kath and Kimderella is the last roll of the dice for a property that is well and truly played-out.
Kath and Kimderdella is not a comedy, it's a collection of humiliations, the concept of an audience paying for this stuff delivering the sickest and most potent punchline.
The dialogue has moments of blistering wit but even these brief flashes of gold are squandered with lame pay-offs and running gags that are just boringly repetitive.
There has been some fear [Kath & Kim's] joke was getting old and those fears are fully realised in this painfully unfunny and labouriously tedious film.
Not since Edna Everage's first film appearance 40 years ago in Bruce Beresford's The Adventures of Barry McKenzie has Australian suburbia been so thoroughly scrutinised, analysed and satirised.
Despite these familiar set-ups, it soon becomes clear that there is something missing from Kath And Kimderella.
There's nothing to lure newcomers, but fans, for the most part, are in for a toot-sweet treat.
The script, by Turner and Riley, and direction, by Ted Emery, lack distinction
It may not be a slickly, richly cinematic experience, but it's something more important than that: funny.
Kath & Kim's foray onto the big screen is an endearing and hilarious romp that nurtures character as it skilfully weaves its narrative into an improbably fairy tale
