    I'm a huge fan of ABFAB hence the name monsoon. I even have a Doberman named Saffron. So I was really excited to see this movie.

    ****SPOILER ALERT!!!


    It was just ok. The script certainly wasn't movie worthy. Everybody looked 8000 years old. Full of cameos like Lulu, Kate moss, dame Edna etc. Bloody Twiggy. Your usual British tat. Patsy (Joanna lumley) looked flipping great and she did the character spot on.

    If your going to see this smoke a fatty and bring a bottle of Stoli. Your going to need it to get through 90 minutes of jokes and gags abfab has already done. And seeing a pushing 50 saffron monsoon will make you pee yourself a little.

    This should have been released on Netflix. I was hoping for so much more as I've known about this script for quite sometime now. Reminded me of how much France and french people suck.

    6 out of 10 stars I was so hoping I could watch this 100x's but no.

    Don't think I can watch the movie because the series was absolute perfection. Patsy is a way of life, yo.

    Too bad. I wanted to see that. Maybe I'll watch it on Apple TV when it rolls around there. AbFab was fucking hilarious.

    Of course. I guess you didn't read the spoiler alert. (P.S.-If you go, best do it now. Not going to be in the theaters much longer.)

    Prob. A six month to a yr wait on the DVD. But gives you time to watch the whole tv boxed set. The TV movie an the three last one off specials as well.

    Im glad they didnt make the american ab fab. I like british humor and i think it would have sucked. Probably heavily censored!

    They did. (Or attempted to.) "High Society" with Jean Smart and Mary McDonnell in the mid 90's. Different set up, and watered down, but an early production by Chuck Lorre. Barely made it one season. The second was the namesake show "Cybil" also with Christine Baranski. That was even more loosely based on Ab Fab, and only Christine playing a wild character. I think that lasted a few seasons.

    I didnt know those shows were supposed to be the america ab fab. I never saw them so i dont know how they changed it around. Are they worth watching?
