The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by Mandie Fletcher. Star­ring Jen­nifer Saun­ders, Joanna Lum­ley, Ju­lia Sawalha, Jane Hor­rocks, June Whit­field Tol­er­a­ble film ver­sion of the sit­com con­cern­ing the ul­ti­mate fash­ion vic­tims. The show’s key high-con­cept greatly as­sists the film-mak­ers’ ef­forts at re­sus­ci­ta­tion. The end­less cameos wear you down. The plot is barely thread­bare. But the two leads – par­tic­u­larly the age­less Lum­ley – keep it aloft. Ab­so­lutely okay. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 90 min DC
