The continuing story of Ja'mie King, a conniving Year 12 student at Hillford Girls Grammar, a tony private school in Sydney, Australia. Ja'mie, the self-promoting "queen bee" of Summer ... See full summary »
Da Kath & Kim Code is an homage to Dan Brown's book and later hollywood blockbuster The Davinci Code. The movie opens with Kath and Kel having just returned from a Davinci Code themed vacation. They decided to leave the tour early and owe the last stop 44 pounds. Bret has just recieved a promotion at work where he is spending more time with his new boss. Kim is preparing herself to be a corporate wife and Sharon has resolved to find a partner via the internet. Christmas is in two weeks and a vengeful bed and breakfast owner is after them, let the adventure begin!
After a year's hiatus Kath and Kim are back! Albeit in just a short made-for-TV movie and not a fully blown season, but I'll take what I can get.
It's great to see the show hasn't lost it's spark and the ninety minutes is full of classic Kath and Kim moments and comedy. I loved the Carols by Candlelight routine and Sharon's outburst in the wedding dress.
I felt the whole Da Vinci Code-inspired sub plot was unnecessary and probably just included to give Barry Humphries some screen time. But I suppose it gave Riley and Turner a good excuse to come out with a movie-length outing for the folks of Fountain Lake.
Not to be missed by any Kath and Kim fan. It definitely leaves me craving the new series.
