  • Catching up with Patsy and Edina provides a weirdly comforting sense of permanence. The world keeps turning, and they keep on running in a desperate attempt to catch up.

  • I think the film is best viewed as a victory lap. And why not? It's a very well deserved one.

    August 12, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • I just wish the film itself did more than play so blatantly to the fan base, because had it broadened its appeal and its reach just a little bit more, it's quite possible we could have had something amazing here to be talking about.

    August 9, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Absolutely Fabulous walks a tart line between embracing celebrity culture and rejecting it.

    August 5, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie could've been a hilarious meditation on ageing, fame and the desperate human desire to be relevant, but except for a couple of rare moments of clarity, it's as shallow as Eddie and Patsy.

    August 1, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • I won't spoil the movie's ending, but its twist is surprisingly gratifying.

    Decent considering the amount of time past. It got an extra half star for the air hostess scene. Rebel is often grating, but she nailed that small role. I literally laughed out loud. I would like to watch this again before reviewing properly as I watched on a plane with bad sound and picture quality and I think I probably missed a few things.

    "Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie" lacks the freshness and trenchant wit of the original television series -- but oh my, it's fun!

    I admittedly have never seen the TV show. This got good reviews so I thought to check it out anyway. It had a few laughs but ultimately it falls flat.
