Kids (and when I say kids, I mean adults) it is almost time to get your Fabulous on. Absolutely!
Indeed, after an absence from the scene for four years, those self-involved, booze and drug-infused BFF's,
Patsy (played by Joanna Lumley) and Edina (nickname, Eddy, played by Jennifer Saunders, who is also one of the creators) ship their bits-of-stuff, in the form of the big-screen movie, Absolutely Fabulous, across the Pond (you know the one I'm talking about) and into select US theaters on July 22.
If you don't know this show, no worries, let me tell you they and it are...Absolutely Fabulously.
So, let's break it down a bit.
This BBC comedy began its original run from 1992 to 1996. It was revived in 2001, and ended in 2004. There was an anniversary special later on, because why not?
But, enough of the history. Let's talk about summer 2016 and the AbFab (oh, you must call it that if you want to be as cool as Pats and Eddy) movie, opening soon. Well, I just hope our little slice of sand will be among the selected cities.
Although it is doing well, very well, in Great Britain (well, don't they need a little humour at this particular time?), who knows how well it will do in the Colonies.
Us (lower cases)?
British humour is our favorite. But, is it for all the Yanks?
Will Patsy and Edina and their vapid behaviour (see, I keep doing it) translate to the big screen in middle-America's fly-over states? Will it translate anywhere on this continent to any significant degree?
Remains to be seen, but even if it is does not live up to my expectations, I am in.
If you aren't terribly familiar with the antics of these two zany and insanely shallow women, let me leave you with a quote from the show.
Eddy: "We'll go on public transport, Pats."
Patsy: "Are you mad? I've got nothing to wear on Public Transport."
Oh, yes mate, I'm in. Bring on the FABULOUS, darling!
