Plus Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

Action comedy Central Intelligence stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the formerly overweight and bullied Bob Stone, now one of the CIA’s top agents, who is reunited with old high school friend Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart). It’s a typical buddy cop comedy as far as script and jokes go, but with Johnson and Hart’s chemistry together, top supporting role talent and some creepily good special effects to create a young fat version of The Rock, it still manages to bring the laughs.

Eddie and Patsy are back. From a French and Saunders sketch to the successful and several times-resurrected TV series, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are reprising their roles in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.

Like the series, the movie is filled with highs and lows, sometimes cringingly scraping the barrel for laughs yet still managing to have moments of comedy gold. Finding out Kate Moss has left her PR agent the self-involved pair rush to make her a client but accidentally tip her into the Thames. With the model missing Patsy and Eddie fear the worst and go on the run, ending in them trying to once again live the high life, this time in the south of France.
