Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamor, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London's trendiest hot-spots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!

Absolutely Ridiculous if you only want to concentrate on the plotline.  Really, very silly but a lot of fun if only to play ‘spot the Brit actor that you haven’t seen in ages’ but don’t blink because many were incredibly fleeting cameos and looking down the cast list I can see I missed quite a few.   Barry Humphries turned up twice, once as Patsy’s potential meal-ticket and a very brief moment as Edna Everage.  Rebel Wilson and Rylan Clark were air stewards?  The indomitable June Whitfield at 90 years old was amazing as ever as Edina’s dotty Mum.  Emma Bunton and Lulu played themselves – I was disappointed Lulu didn’t sing, but special mention to Jane Horrocks for her awesome rendition of a Shirley Bassey song.  If you can forgive the script and need a bit of light relief in your life it’s definitely worth a shot.
