 Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) make the transition to the big screen after six successful seasons on television with the British series Absolutely Fabulous. The hard-partying women are suddenly forced to change their lavish ways when Edina's PR agency runs out of money and interest. Hoping to snag a new client, the witty pair attend a ritzy fashion launch event for designer Huki Muki. However, they get more than they bargained for when Edina is accused of pushing model Kate Moss into the River Thames and Patsy loses her job on account of being a close friend of Edina's. In an effort to escape reproach for the Kate Moss debacle -- and marry their way into new sums of money -- they take off for the French Riviera with champagne, expensive clothes and cash on their minds. But it isn't long before their wild antics catch up with them and they're forced to face reality...at least for a moment or two.
