Storyline

Returning from Africa, where she spends half the year with her husband and daughter, Saffy finds that Edina has let the house to film star Michael Douglas for the Olympic Games but has forgotten when they start. Eddy and Patsy - who now needs incontinence pants - doll themselves up for their guest but instead find themselves hosting Marshall,to whom Michael gave his tickets when they met at a sex addiction group,and Bo. However when Marshall drops his tickets for the pre-Olympic party they use them to gate-crash,their gaucherie inevitably getting them thrown out,though they do get to use the stadium. Back home they settle down to watch the games on television with Bubble,Saffy and Mother - who knows something the rest of them do not. Written by don @ minifie-1

A good ad for the Olympic games.
29 August 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The magic is still here, Olympics to this day remains the final television installment of the much loved Absolutely Fabulous. It's fair to say that the build up to the 2012 Olympics was huge, you couldn't go anywhere without seeing Olympic advertising, and this does just that, it was almost a promotional film for the great games. It's not vintage, but it's funny, Bo and Marshall add lots of laughs, as does June Whitfield. The Kelly Holmes segment was hilarious as was the Tanny Grey Thompson part.

The stadium moment was very poignant, a reminder of why the 2012 Olympics was great. A great bit of in house advertising for the BBC's coverage of the games. 8/10
