Absolutely fabulous it is not - every now and again a little bit fabulous at a stretch.

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.
August 29, 2018
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.
August 27, 2018
Absolutely Fabulous is trashy obsession masquerading as satire, slobbering over the same puffy lifestyle that Zoolander burst into absurdity.

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.

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.

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.

Absolutely Crapulous.

Where before, their satirical take on high society... offered a measure of catty capers along with well-timed witty one-liners, now their escapades come across as something akin to a puerile, poorly rehearsed high school play.

If the movie feels at times like it's drifting to a halt, or if there seems to be a long wait for a laugh-inducing gag, at least the characters still have some bite.

Like the best laid plans of a "Saturday Night Live" inspired film, the bits only work in small doses. Exposing the girls to 90 minutes of screen time leads to a lot of hit-and-miss jokes and outrageous situations.

Plays like a farce at half-speed, setting up amusing scenarios but lacking the energy needed to really crackle.
August 27, 2016
Long-time supporters of the show will enjoy catching up with the eccentric characters. Others may be left scratching their head and wondering if this is the female equivalent of a Hunter S. Thompson novel.
August 25, 2016
What made the Absolutely Fabulous series unique was its slapdash, knockabout quality... That is fine in a 30-minute sitcom. In a 90-minute movie, it feels infuriatingly dithering.

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.

Whenever Saunders and Lumley leave the screen the energy level sags faster than 60-year-old eye bags without Botox.
August 5, 2016
Absolutely Fabulous walks a tart line between embracing celebrity culture and rejecting it.
August 4, 2016
This big-screen expansion of the hit 1990s Brit-com is a tired, lazy and often rather horrible effort from all concerned.
