[It] features wall-to-wall cameos from designers and supermodels past and present. Which isn't to say you have to be au courant to get all the jokes.

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.

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.

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.

This story is pretty thin, and this two characters bumble and stumble through a series of jokes about media's obsession with celebrity, the character's obsession with youth and the life of luxury.

Laughter excuses all as they say and this didn't have enough.

Well, Britain's bombastic booze-loving fashion figureheads are back for some familiar naughty fun and frolicking, so committed "AbFab" fans can rejoice...off-kilter and shrewdly amusing

Celebrating a culture that is past its prime and being too serious are two grave errors that keep Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie from itself being fabulous.

Absolutely Fabulous is trashy obsession masquerading as satire, slobbering over the same puffy lifestyle that Zoolander burst into absurdity.

Pacing is extremely uneven, which perhaps was intentional because it works so well with the long established schtick. If it feels like a strand of sloppy skits, it's supposed to, my dear -- that's part of its charm.

Fortunately for us, laughing from the sidelines, even decades of trouble-and a couple of international incidents-can't dim Eddy's and Patsy's voracious lust for life.

For the most part Ab Fab: The Movie is confused celebrity-laden chaos weighed down by too many cameo appearances and not enough story to sustain a full feature.

It's really only for the Ab Fab loyal, but if you're a sweetie darling, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is a satisfying trip back into Patsy and Edina's self-obsessed world.

They may not be at their most fabulous, but they're still good value.

As a movie, there's not much there, but it's still touching when Eddie admits their outrageous antics are their only defense against the fear of getting old and obsolete.

One does not have to have a long history with Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone to enjoy the film version of this friendship, a folie à deux.
February 17, 2017
You'd hope it would have matured like a fine vintage champagne, but unfortunately Absolutely Fabulous is one franchise that hasn't aged well.

Little else about Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie may justify its existence or demonstrate its relevance, but reuniting its leads with viewers does enough.
