Kath and Kim, it's time to retire.
5 April 2019 | by CabbageCustardSee all my reviews

There is a reason that John Cleese et al only made 12 episodes of Fawlty Towers, one of the most beloved of comedy shows. It ensured that Basil Fawlty, Manuel and co would never out stay their welcome, become predictable and, worst of all, boring! It left the fans begging for more. A lot of lesser comedy shows have not followed that same philosophy and they are all the poorer for it. Sadly, Kath and Kim are part of that latter group. The first two seasons of the adventures of the foxy ladies from Fountain Lakes were brilliant, cutting edge satirical humour. The third season got by on the strength of the good will built up in the first two. The fourth season was really starting to take the joke too far and the time was well and truly right (actually, it was PAST time) for the ladies to retire. Sadly, the time behind the show tried to squeeze one last dribble of lucre out of the franchise and so we were presented with this sad excuse for a sparkling comedy. There is nothing sparkling about it. It is just a rehash of everything we've seen before with a smattering of unfunny and unlikely plot elements thrown in to try and spice things up. Sadly, it all just seems to be a bit desperate. I have a feeling that the Australian public still have a great day of affection for Kath and Kim. Any more outings like this however, and that good will well and truly dry up. Retire dear ladies, retire. You deserve it. You have nothing else to prove. If you, like me, have fond memories of Kath, Kim, Sharon, Kel and Brett then do yourself a favour and give this flick a miss.
