Blu-rays for the Weekend – Absolutely Fabulous

This weekend, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley reunite as Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie lands in cinemas across the UK.

Lumley and Saunders resume their roles as Patsy Stone and Edina Monsoon, two glamorous fashion PR consultants who like nothing more than a good party. After a major incident at a fashionable industry show, the two are forced to go on the run after being relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. The pair land in the luxurious French Riviera, and upon finding that they rather enjoy the high life, begin to make plans to ensure their escape remains permanent.

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is the latest British sitcom to hit the big screen. To get you in the mood, we look back at some of our other favourites available on Blu-ray:

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa

Norfolk’s most awkward radio presenter, Alan Partridge, is back and bigger than ever in his first feature length film.Alan Partridge Alpha Papa

Steve Coogan stars as Partridge, whose tenure as a radio DJ looks increasingly at risk after the station is taken over by a corporate organisation looking to target the youth audience. When his colleague takes the news rather badly and initiates a hostage situation, Partridge must channel his inner Andy McNabb to try to save the day.

The Blu-ray comes with a selection of hilarious special features, including a making-of documentary, 21 deleted scenes and a blooper reel.

The Inbetweeners Movie

Following the hugely successful Channel 4 series The Inbetweeners, best friends Simon Cooper, Will McKenzie, Jay Cartwright and Neil Sutherland hit the silver screen in The Inbetweeners Movie.The Inbetweeners Movie

After the boys finish school, they decide to embark on their first holiday without their parents. Of course, they decide to head to the isle of Crete, and its party capital Malia. But for them, nothing is straightforward. What starts out as their first taste of independence, soon descends into chaos as the foursome throw themselves into all the delights that the island has to offer.

You can pick up The Inbetweeners Movie, along with its sequel, as part of a double-pack Blu-ray, which comes with hilarious commentary, bloopers, deleted scenes and more.

Bad Education

Comedian Jack Whitehall stars as history teacher Alfie Wickers, a rather hopeless newly-qualified Bad Educationteacher who inherits a raucous class of misfits. After the class finish their GCSEs, Alfie decides to take them on a school trip to Cornwall. Despite his less-than-perfect track record with the class, he’s granted permission, and decides to take colleague and long-term love interest Miss Gulliver. Of course, it’s not long until it all starts to go wrong…

Sarah Solemani, Harry Enfield and Matthew Horne star alongside Whitehall, so if you’re a fan of British comedy, this is certainly the film for you.
