After attracting both media and police attention for accidentally knocking Kate Moss into the River Thames, Edina and Patsy hide out in the south of France. —IMDB

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS is most definitely not absolutely fabulous. In fact, it is a completely missable movie. The jokes are lame, the plot unoriginal and superficial. Joanna Lumley is occasionally funny and Barry Humphries does a cameo that is excellent. But these don’t go any way towards improving a terrible movie. There are about three funny moments and the rest of the jokes just don’t work. The whole thing looks tired and out of date. It should never have been made nor should it be seen. Avoid it!
