Storyline

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 Fox Searchlight Pictures/BBC Films

Goofs

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.

I Loved It...but the Bubble Burst!
25 December 2016 | by robstackleySee all my reviews

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"!!
