    7/22/2016 6:36:57 PM, by GREATMARTIN

    Walking into this movie you know exactly what to expect and you get it! Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) are older versions of the 'girls' first met in a TV series in 1992. They still drink anything with alcohol, including Chanel #5, but mostly prefer Bollinger's champagne. ... Read more
