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

  • I won't spoil the movie's ending, but its twist is surprisingly gratifying.

  • Is it too much? You bet. But Saunders and Lumley are all about keeping the party going. So grab your Bolly, darlings, and party on.

    July 22, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, while amusing in spots, too often plays like a moderately decent TV-reunion show that's diminished by its attempt to be a theatrical feature.

    July 22, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Whether joking about the shallowness of the fashion industry or veering to an inverted riff on Some Like It Hot, you can never say this romp doesn't go for it.

    July 22, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Finding deep meaning and satisfaction from this story will be difficult, but if it's style over substance you're after, then you'll revel in the comedic chic.

    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.
