Joanna Lumley Doesn't Think Idris Elba Fits "The Description" For James Bond


Joanna Lumley

The role of James Bond in any upcoming movies based on the secret service spy is something that's been hotly rumoured to be any number of actors, with Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Tom Hiddleston and Aidan Turner amongst those at the front of the pack. Of course, there's every chance that Daniel Craig could make his return for yet another outing as 007, but previous comments he's made - such as his preference to slitting his wrist than play Bond again - would suggest he's done with the character.

Now, Elba has been rumoured to take on the role for quite some time. Back in 2015 however, controversy was struck up by author Anthony Horowitz - who has written several Bond novels in his time - when he suggested Elba was "too street" to play Bond. He later apologised for his "poor" choice of words.

'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' Stylist Wanted Edina Monsoon To Have Four Camel Toes.


Jennifer Saunders Kim Kardashian Joanna Lumley Khloe Kardashian

'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' stylist wanted Edina Monsoon's to have four camel toes.

The costume designer Rebecca Hale has admitted she wanted Edina's (Jennifer Saunders) character to have a ''fourth camel hoof'' caused by an ill-fitting pair of trousers that are hitched up too high they gather around the crotch area, but decided against the idea because she wanted to ''tone down'' her eccentric fashion sense.

Speaking to Fashionista.com about her wardrobe choices for the comedy duo, she said: ''And the trousers will always have a camel hoof.

Real-Life Eddie And Patsy Ejected From 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' Screening For Laughing Too Loud


Jennifer Saunders Joanna Lumley

Two grandmothers, who describe themselves as the real-life Eddie and Patsy, have claimed they were thrown out of a screening of Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie for laughing too much. Cindy Amass and Jacqueline Cox told The Mirror that staff at Islington’s Vue cinema told them to "laugh on the inside” or get out.

Absolutely Fabulous: The MovieTwo women say they were ejected from Ab Fab: The Movie for laughing too much.

"The film is so funny, obviously that's why we went,” Cindy said. "I had a heart attack and Jacqui's daughter bought us the tickets, as I'm like her aunt and she wanted to do a nice thing for me. I hadn't been out for over a year and I was really looking forward to it. It was an early showing at 6pm so there wasn't many people in the cinema.”

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie Review

OK

Nearly 25 years after the sitcom debuted, Edina and Patsy arrive on the big screen to continue their drunken antics, although without the usual enthusiastic laugh-track everything feels eerily muted. Thankfully, there's still a lot of fun to be had, including well-aimed jabs at celebrity culture. Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are still hilarious in their signature roles. And it's hard to get too worried about the limp plot when every scene is packed with amusing cameo appearances.

With her PR agency fading and her money spent on expanding her home, Edina (Saunders) discovers that her credit cards are "broken" and her champagne fridge is empty. So she and her pal Patsy (Lumley) set out to make some cash. After failing to sell her memoirs, Edina sets out to woo Kate Moss as a client. But this goes spectacularly wrong when Kate ends up falling off a balcony into the Thames. Now under investigation, Eddie and Pats flee to the South of France to find Patsy's wealthy ex (Barry Humphreys). They're chased by a detective (Robert Webb), who's the boyfriend of Edina's daughter Saffron (Julia Sawalha), whose teen daughter (Indeharna Donaldson-Holness) has run off with them.

Written by Saunders, the script is very loose, bouncing around without much focus before a series of impatient, nonsensical conclusions. Basically, it's little more than a flimsy framework that includes brief scenes for series regulars (including Jane Horrock's airhead assistant, June Whitfield's dotty mum, Celia Imrie's rival PR and Kathy Burke's bulldog editor), plus a few new characters like Chris Colfer's stylist. All of these people have their moments, but never quite emerge as much more than comedy sketch figures. On the other hand, the big-screen format allows Saunders and Lumley to give Edina and Patsy a bit of surprising emotional depth amid the usual slapstick nuttiness.

Benedict Cumberbatch Wanted To Be In Absolutely Fabulous


Benedict Cumberbatch Absolutely Fabulous Jennifer Saunders Joanna Lumley

After running for six seasons over 21 years, from 1992 to 2013, the classic British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous arrives on the big screen in a flurry of champagne and cameos. Originally a short sketch on the French & Saunders show, the enduring characters have had a rather patchy ride, with some episodes funnier than others.

Benedict Cumberbatch at a Q&A with US President Barack Obama at London's Lindley Hall.

It was a year and a half ago that writer-star Jennifer Saunders was challenged by Dawn French to make the movie. "We were doing our New Year's show on Radio 2", Saunders says, "And Dawn said, 'What are you doing in the next year?' I said, 'I'm going to write the Ab Fab film.' She said, 'Alright. And if you don't, you have to pay me ten thousand pounds!' And I said, 'Okay.' It was the greatest incentive I ever had. I probably wouldn't have done it without that bet."

Has 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' Lived Up To Its Name?


Joanna Lumley Jennifer Saunders

The title 'Absolutely Fabulous' has turned out to be a bit of an over-statement for this movie according to the latest reviews, but generally it has wound up to be an enjoyable affair for fans of the TV show; quite a feat given that the majority of the cast aren't actually actors.

Absolutely FabulousAbsolutely Fabulous or absolutely vacuous?

Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are back as Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone in 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie'. There's no denying that this duo is no less entertaining than they originally were in the television series, but the same can't be said for the other stars of the show. According to the Metro, the comedy was 'dampened by giving too much screen time to famous people who struggle to play themselves convincingly', while the Guardian agreed that it 'becomes less funny with every syllable that Stella [McCartney] is allowed to say' and described Kate Moss' performance as 'uncompromisingly wooden'.

Joanna Lumley Commits Herself To Ab Fab, But Warns Girls Of Following Her Example


Joanna Lumley

With a shiny Lifetime Achievement Award proudly atop her mantlepiece, Joanna Lumley has decide to give back even more by delivering some rather fabulous (you might even say absolutely fabulous) new about the big screen adaption of the hit comedy series Absolutely Fabulous.

Speaking behind the scenes at the NTAs Lumley, who plays Patsy - the drink-addled, chain smoking magazine editor, let us in on some of her future plans, which most definitely include her taking up her role as Patsy for any future Ab Fab projects, including the long awaited movie adaption. Although the idea of a musical film version of the show seemed quizzical to the veteran actress, she lamented that she'd be down for it no matter what, saying, "I'm obviously up for that. I'm obviously a very good singer," before adding, "Nobody's going to play Patsy when I'm alive! I do mean that, I do mean that darling, because it could get savage."

Lumley hasn't been all cheer and musicals of late though, and has heeded a very appropriate warning to 'laddish' women who are giving her over-the-top Patsy character a run for her money. Earlier this week, speaking to The Mirror, Lumley warned women of the dangers of the binge drinking culture gripping Britain at the moment, not just on their health but on their overall safety and how they are perceived. he admitted her own detest of the character she plays on the BBC show and discussed her despair at seeing hordes of scantily clad women being “sick in the gutter” across town and city centres at night. She issued this warning to the main offenders, saying: “Don’t look like trash, don’t get drunk, don’t be sick down your front, don’t break your heels and stagger about in the wrong clothes at midnight. This is bad. It’s not me being a snob. It’s not me being an old woman talking to young women. It’s just standard practice for how our species should behave.”

Heed Joanna Lumley's Words, Girls


Joanna Lumley

After playing a debauched character in Absolutely Fabulous, Joanna Lumley is keen to ensure young girls don't put themselves at risk by emulating some of her on-screen behaviour.

"I promise you it is better to look after yourself properly, which means behave properly, be polite, be on time, dress properly - I don't mean dully - but don't be sick in the gutter at midnight in a silly dress with no money to get a taxi home, because somebody will take advantage of you, either they'll rape you, or they'll knock you on the head or they'll rob you," she explained to The Daily Mail

"Don't look like trash, don't get drunk, don't be sick down your front, don't break your heels and stagger about in the wrong clothes at midnight. This is bad."

Boogie Woogie Review


Good
There's a terrific idea in this film, and an astounding cast, but author Moynihan seems determined to get every tiny thread of his novel into this script, leaving the movie overcrowded and fragmented.

Art (Danny Huston) is a powerful London art dealer and close friends of jet-setting collectors Jean and Bob (Anderson and Skarsgard), whose marriage is badly strained by Bob's wandering eye. He's in the process of setting up his mistress Beth (Graham), one of Art's employees, with her own gallery. So Jean seduces Beth's boyfriend, a young artist (Jack Huston). Meanwhile, a video artist (Winstone) is cruelly using her curator best friend (Cumming) as a subject. And Alfreda (Lumley) is trying to convince her elderly husband (Lee) to part with his valuable Mondrian Boogie Woogie painting.

Whispers: An Elephant's Tale Review


Weak
Here's an experiment that has worked in the past (The Adventures of Milo and Otis) but which doesn't quite fly this time out.

Whispers: An Elephant's Tale -- like all live-action kiddie-fare about animals with human voices -- is about a lost baby elephant and his presumably incredible journey to find his way back home to mom. While Whispers might look like a real baby elephant on your TV set, he has a real human voice (that sounds remarkably like Babe the pig's) -- only his lips don't really move when he talks. Niether do the other animals, who communicate with more sarcasm than you'll find in the typical episode of Friends.

Curse Of The Pink Panther Review


Weak
Although the prior Pink Panther film, Trail of the Pink Panther, essentially had no plot, Curse of the Pink Panther picks up where it left off.

That's a tricky place to start, and it doesn't go entirely well. Finally acknowledging the death of Peter Sellers three years earlier, Curse posits that Clouseau is still missing and that, well, somebody ought to find him. Enter what the studio obvious hoped would be a replacement for Sellers, Ted Wass, playing "the world's second best detective," Sergeant Clifton Sleigh. (Of course, Wass didn't really take, the movie flopped, and that was that. Wass is now a television director, but he's best known for his work playing the dad on TV's Blossom.)

Maybe Baby Review


Good
Infertility movies have been made before with middling success (Forget Paris), and this all-Brit redux also has its moments of levity and moments of melodramatic nonsense. Packed full of A- and B-list celebs, including just about anyone from the UK who's ever been in a movie. Amusing but not terribly filling (no pun intended). based on the novel Inconceivable (presumably, pun intended).

Cold Comfort Farm Review


Excellent
Clever and funny English country dramady about an orphan (Beckinsale, in a radiant debut that has gone downhill ever since), who is sent to live with her insane relatives on Cold Comfort Farm. Grows better with each viewing.

Whispers: An Elephant's Tale Review

James And The Giant Peach Review


Very Good
Lemme tell ya, this was the most unusual screening I've been to in a long time. After all, what better way to spend a Saturday morning than with 200 hyperactive children, all of whom are fawning over a guy dressed up in a giant, fuzzy, grey bat suit, complete with six-foot wingspan? (Note: as far as I can tell, the bat had nothing to do with the film.) And lemme tell ya, none of this was as strange as the film I was about to see....

Now I'm probably the last person in the world who ought to judge what makes for a good children's movie, but if you'd asked me that yesterday, I certainly wouldn't have said James and the Giant Peach. This is a story about a young boy, James (Paul Terry), whose parents are eaten by a spiritual rhinoceros. He is adopted by his cruel aunts (Miriam Margolyes and AbFab's Joanna Lumley), who abuse him cruelly. Then an "old man" (Pete Postlethwaite) gives James some "alligator tongues" which he spills on a peach tree, creating the aforementioned giant peach. Inside this peach, where James hides to get away from his aunties, he finds a bunch of giant bugs: a Brooklyn centipede (Richard Dreyfuss), a cowardly earthworm (which is, by the way, not a bug--David Thewlis), a sultry spider (Susan Sarandon), a matronly ladybug (Jane Leeves), and sundry other insects.

The Cat's Meow Review


Weak
"Get two geniuses, put them together in a room, and... wow!" That was Steve Martin's self-conscious gag incorporated into the dialogue of his play Picasso at the Lapin Angile. It said, in effect, that we shouldn't give famous intellectuals more credit than they're due. They have inconsistencies like all of us. Peter Bogdanovich's bitter Hollywood pill both loves and hates its showbiz characters and geniuses, but it admonishes them in their Golden Era splendor and exists somewhat in awe of them.

Taking place aboard William Randolph Hearst's private yacht one fateful weekend in November, 1924, Bogdanovich enjoys tweaking the Citizen Kane myth built around the mighty Hearst (Edward Herrmann) and his youthful, rising-star mistress Marion Davies (Kirsten Dunst). Marion, in particular, is seen as a bright-eyed, confident, canny manipulator, working her way into the power system through her own creative ingenuity. It's a far cry from Kane's bubblehead recreation. Hearst, sinking deep into his middle-aged bulk and deeper into paranoia (monitoring his guests through a series of spy gadgets), uses her as a lifeline to humankind. Without her, he'd barely be a person.

Corpse Bride Review


Good

"Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" returns the director to his roots in the giddy macabre, and what an entertaining homecoming it is.

Using old-fashioned stop-motion animation (which Burton has improved upon since his first foray in "The Nightmare Before Christmas") to create atmospheric scenes populated by hoity Victorian caricatures and oddball creatures from a wonderfully weird underworld, the movie spins a fairytale fable of shy, awkward young Victor (voiced by Johnny Depp) whose arranged marriage to shy, pretty young Victoria (Emily Watson) is derailed when he accidentally gets hitched to a curvy, wide-eyed -- and decaying -- corpse (Helena Bonham Carter).

Although he's fallen in love with Victoria on first sight the night before they're to be wed, Victor is nervous about being thrust into 'til-death-do-us-part by his social-climbing nouveau riche parents and her family of snobbish but flat-broke aristocrats. Nervously practicing his vows in the creaking, snow-frosted forest on the outskirts of his gray industrial village (after fleeing the rehearsal ceremony), Victor slips Victoria's ring onto what looks like a naked branch sticking up from the frozen ground.

Eurotrip Review


OK

Genuinely funny teen sex romps are hard to come by because movie producers know their target audience has low standards. As long as the movie hits a few choice gross-out jokes, provides a handful of topless girls, and keeps costs down (usually by casting unknowns), a profit is virtually guaranteed from whatever allowance money college freshmen don't spend on beer.

So when a movie as ribald and riotous as "Eurotrip" comes along, you know it's a fluke -- and that it's probably too good to last. Does this comedy's paper-thin plot eventually collapse under the cumulative weight of its contrivances and coincidences? Yes. But until its inevitable (and exponential) downward slide in the last half-hour, the nude-beach, Absinthe and hash-brownie escapades of four pals, fresh out of high school and loose on the Continent, had me laughing out loud.

The set-up is, of course, simplistic: On graduation day, cute, irresolute nice-guy Scotty (newcomer Scott Mechlowicz) is dumped by his long-term girlfriend ("Smallville's" Kristin Kreuk) and decides to join his friends on a trip overseas, where he hopes to track down, and hook up with, a gorgeous internet pen-pal from Germany.
