Is This a Good Idea?

It’s official, sweetie darlings: Absolutely Fabulous is coming soon to a cinema near you.

Yes, the long-rumored, frequently assumed to be mythical feature film version of ridiculous adventures of desperate to be hip PR agent Edina Monsoon and her chain-smoking, hard-partying best friend Patsy Stone is finally arriving on the big screen. It will be titled, simply, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.

We don’t know a lot about the film’s plot just yet, though Entertainment Weekly reported that the story finds Edina and Patsy reeling from “a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party” and decamping to the French Riviera.
