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

The secret to the success of Absolutely Fabulous (1992) has been its refusal to play by the rules. "It was the first time, on-screen, that women were seen behaving badly", says Jane Horrocks (Bubble), who originally auditioned for the part of Saffy, and then created her own, fabulously kooky character in Bubble. "When Patsy and Eddy came along, women the world over felt that they had been given permission to get arseholed and have a laugh. They were such a breath of fresh air; such a brilliant, funny relief." See more »
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.

[Eddie and Patsy are in the limosine after finding out that Eddie's credit cards are *broken*]
Eddie, can we stop off at the Woolsley?
No, darling. My cards are broken.
My cards are *broken*!
[Looks confused and lost]
Well, haven't you got any of that...

If you are a fan of the first three of the six seasons of Absolutely fabulous like I was, you might be,disappointed in this long awaited movie. This movie seems to have been written by the writers of seasons 4-6. Writers of Seasons 4-6 seemed to believe saying "Sweetie Darling" would get laughs, and they were wrong! This movie seems to be an unedited/uncensored two part episode from season 6 that somehow was a turned into a theatrical release. Just like seasons 4-6, this move was bland but amusing. Footnote: Get a load of a certain British starlet from 1950s on up who was doing cameos near the end.. She should put together an info-mercial on the Botox she used. You would never believe that's her at eighty plus of age.
