Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) are still oozing glitz and glamor, living the high life to which they are accustomed; shopping, drinking, and clubbing their way around London's trendiest hot-spots. Blamed for a major incident at a 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

Early in the film, Edina learns that her ex-husband is cutting off her alimony. Edina's alimony (and other financial assistance) was already cut by both her ex-husbands in the series 2 episode, Absolutely Fabulous: Poor in 1994. See more »

I Loved It...but the Bubble Burst!
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"!!
