|Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie|
|Air Date||1 July 2016|
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie was a feature length film continuation of the TV series. The filmed opened in cinemas in the UK on 1 July 2016.
Glamorous, but broke, Edina and Patsy, are now women of a certain age, and Eddy is realizing that her PR business is losing cash -- and fast. Knowing that they need a miracle to save their extravagant lifestyles, Patsy and Eddy hatch a plan to bring their idol, Kate Moss, into Eddy's PR universe, after overhearing that Kate is seeking out new PR.
They hatch a plan to crash a party that Kate is attending. Realizing that Eddy's competition is approaching Kate to offer her PR services, Edina rushes over to get to Kate first -- and in the ensuing melee, ends up pushing Kate off of her perch on the patio and into the Thames River, below them.
Kate Moss is assumed dead, and Patsy and Eddy are arrested. After being released, the pair flee to Cannes, France, in order to avoid dealing with Kate Moss' accidental drowning. In their adventures, they get themselves (unsurprisingly) into even more trouble, before Saffy eventually turns up in Cannes to find them and deliver (unexpected, but welcome) news.
The film closes with Kylie Minogue's cover of the famous AbFab theme song, "Wheels on Fire."
A soundtrack album featuring songs and incidental music from the movie was released on 22 July 2016.
