Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamor, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London's trendiest hot-spots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more! Written by

Comedian Barry Humphries plays dual roles in this film. As well as briefly appearing as Dame Edna Everage, Humphries also has a speaking role as Charlie, a man the AbFab gals meet in France, and it is for this role that he is credited for in the end credits. The Dame Edna Everage character is billed in the final credits roll as being played by the character Dame Edna Everage, and not Barry Humphries. See more »
Near the end, Eddy is shown carrying a printed copy of her autobiography just before a "breaking news" report about the missing model is seen. Since the manuscript earlier rejected by the publisher was unfinished, and since Eddy was too busy trying to escape the media and police to rewrite anything, there's no way the publisher could have produced a finished book a day or two after Eddy's P.R. dilemma was resolved.

[On the red carpet outside the Huki Vuki event, Patsy sees Stella McCartney]
Stella, darling. Hi, sweet-heart. Is your father with you? Is little Paul with you?
Oh, that's a shame. I was hoping to have a little catchup with him. Haven't seen him since 1969.
[waggles tongue obscenely]
Know what I mean?
[even more disgustedly]
And the world blamed Yoko.

It started very slowly, and at first I was really worried that this was nothing but a cash grab...after they "killed" Kate Moss, though, it really took off! In lieu of a "review", I've got bullet points:
*Stella McCartney was totally hilarious, but only if you know your Beatles
*It saddens me to say, but the least funny person in this film is...BUBBLE??? Let me put it this way - in "AF:tM", she is the equivalent of Jack Black in "Tropic Thunder"
*Saffy's tirade is hysterically funny...but only if you watched the series
*I recognized Barry Humphries in his 2 seconds as Dame Edna, but NOT as Charles...I didn't realize it until the credits
*I LOVED the homage to "Some Like it Hot"!!
