Reviews:
3 stars out of 5 -- "It’s impossible to watch Joanna Lumley’s pursed-lip expression of disdain and suppressed nausea without laughing and the same goes for Saunders’s childlike pout of dismay and incomprehension." - 06/29/2016 The Guardian


"The plot is pure farce, plumped out to 90 minutes: high-camp silliness gilded by glittery settings and an endless stream of series regulars and celebrity cameos....Ultimately though, it’s all secondary to Saunders and Lumley’s riotous chemistry together." - 07/14/2016 Entertainment Weekly


3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he series -- and now this film -- is a love story about friendship. Saunders and Lumley create a charisma that proves hard to resist with their satirical but full characters, including us on their shenanigans..." - 07/22/2016 RogerEbert.com


"[P]acked with the hilariously garish outfits -- a sequined camouflage coat with a fur collar and a sweater covered in stuffed internet acronyms are but two of the highlights -- and deliciously bitchy humor fans have come to expect from Saunders and Lumley." -- Grade: B - 07/21/2016 A.V. Club


"It’s basically more of the amusing, often very funny, occasionally wincing raucous same, with Eddy and Patsy as the brand-wearing and hard-partying -- and hard-smoking, sometimes-snorting -- irresistible fools whose adventures are as female-specific as Lucy and Ethel’s were decades earlier." - 07/21/2016 New York Times


"[A] champagne-bubbly continuation of their cult-fave Britcom....The pair bring as much loopy energy as ever in donning the glamorpuss duds of Saunders’s Edina Monsoon and Lumley’s Patsy Stone for the first time since the series last added to its intermittent run in 2012." - 07/21/2016 Boston Globe


"ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS: THE MOVIE is a raucously funny, often endearing, subversively feminist, bloody good time." - 07/21/2016 Los Angeles Times


"[T]he efforts of Eddy and Patsy to hold back the ravages of time -- Patsy carries her own Botox injections -- may nudge out a sniffle or two, that is when you're not spitting up from laughing." - 07/22/2016 Rolling Stone
