Did PR agent Edina Monsoon mean to push fashion icon Kate Moss off a balcony and into the Thames to her apparent death? Sweetie! Darling! Anyone who knows Eddie like we do knows she would never intentionally destroy her goddess. And know Eddie well we do, we lovers of the 1990s BBC sitcom that crashed our collective party with the outrageous misadventures of Eddie (Jennifer Saunders, series creator and screenwriter here) and her best friend, fashion editor Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley). Un-mellowed by time, the besties now take their general pursuit of an endless champagne-fueled good time to the south of France; what better place to go on the lam when accused of murder? No knowledge of the TV show is required: Stand-alone send-ups of the emptiness of one-upwomanship and reflexive hedonism zing, and the numerous celebrity cameos hit just-right notes of clued-in ridiculousness. Best of all, it is a sheer triumph to see two older women—Saunders is 58, Lumley 70—being really, really funny onscreen, in all sorts of ways, from sly, often underplayed character satire to literal falling-down slapstick. Fabulous.
