Absolutely Fabulous

Crack open the champers, TV sitcom spin-off Absolutely Fabulous has become a hit at the UK box office. The film took a very respectable £4.03m last week to land at No.2, behind The Secret Life Of Pets.

Compared to recent British movie versions of TV sitcomes, Absolutely Fabulous opened above Dad's Army, which took in £2.08m in its first week but just below Mrs. Brown's Boys, which took £4.3m in its first week.
