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.

It's the best, darling!
2 July 2016 | by DagnessaSee all my reviews

I have been waiting for this movie for a long time and it did not disappoint! I am a huge fan of the TV series. I am addicted to it. So I missed them. I missed Patsy, Edina and the gang. Going to the cinema was like visiting old friends. All of them are there, everybody. Big names, you know; and again they make you laugh like if nothing has changed.

Lights! Models! Guest list! It was the best, darling!

The only issue was that I was only allowed 2 bottles of wine in the cinema!! Do they know who we were going to see?!

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!
