  • WHAT I LIKED: At least this movie isn't poorly-intended as it's clearly trying to work as a social satire about the super-rich and vein. It succeeds there in a way as you properly hate virtually everyone on screen throughout, and there is the occasional moment that will bring a smile to the face.
    WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The bottom line is though it's just not funny, and as these thoroughly irritating and poisonous characters show off how dim and worthless they are, it only becomes increasingly hard to laugh. It's also hard of course to invest in any of it either as there's noone to root for, and when the final act actually asks you to care about them, it all becomes a little too much.
    VERDICT: A film that's supposed to be a satire of the super-rich but other fails, 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie,' isn't funny or engaging in any way, and it actually winds up a pretty terrible affair overall.
