Dearest… Outrageous Fortune

The hilariously hedonistic escapades of Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone have been a gay fave since Ab Fab made its television debut 25 years ago. Their unique brand of bawdy bad behavior has finally made the leap to cinemas in the flashy, fun and fashionably late Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.

Not much has changed.

Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are back in their iconic roles, along with just about every actor who ever appeared on the TV show (Lulu! Gran! Baby Spice!), not to mention a slew of celebrity cameos, from Jon Hamm to Dame Edna to Rebel Wilson. With Ab Fab on the big screen, everything is bolder, campier and far more expensive… just the way Eddy and Pats love it. And you’ll love it too, sweetie darlings.

Dearest Rating: 8/10
