It’s fashionable for big screen iterations of popular sit-coms to lose their spark when blown up into a full length feature. However we have faith that Jennifer Saunders can do her most popular creation proud when it hits UK cinemas on the 1st of July.
We’ve seen a dozen or so cameos revealed along with typically understated posters, but today we have the full trailer. Joanna Lumley is on point as Patsy and series regulars Julia Sawalha as Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Mother also return. There’s also a fantastic gag with Rebel Wilson which is worth the watch in itself.
High hopes after seeing this trailer, here you go…
Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots.
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 forevermore!
