Fabulous for fans, watchable for non-fans
11 July 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you were a fan of the TV show, you will love the film - it's quite a crowd pleaser for the fans. It has all the right nods to the series, so non-fans may miss out on quite a few inside jokes. You don't get much introduction to the characters, so having seen at least some of the series means that this isn't an issue, but I imagine that it may not be so great if you don't know the characters already. Also, it's very nice to see familiar faces from (most of) the old gang.

If you haven't seen the TV show, this film is still pretty good, but you won't get as much out of it. It has quite a few cameos which are fun regardless, and some big laughs. Overall, you would probably find it to be a fairly standard comedy film, but not outstanding.

My recommendations - if you liked the series, definitely go to see this. The girls are as funny as ever, and the film gleefully caters for you. If you haven't seen the series, you should watch it, and then watch the film. You will certainly not regret getting into the Absolutely Fabulous world. If you have seen the series, but you didn't like it, you are an atrocious enigma and I don't know how to deal with you.
