Kath & Kimderella the Movie
The TV series Kath and Kim is 30 minutes of laughs but their
latest movie, Kath & Kimderella definitely misses the mark.
Unfortunately for these two hornbags from Fountain Lakes, the plot of
the movie is almost too ridiculous to watch at times and everything that was
funny in the TV series has been pushed aside to what seems like a
vacation for the two stars Gina Riley and Jane Turner with people like
Glenn Robbins and Peter Rowsthorn neglected from the main plot.
Kimderella begins when they win overseas tickets to some "make believe"
Mediterranean country after entering a competition at their local Terry
White pharmacy. Okay... that's funny and as a result, Kath, Kim and Sharon Strzelecki become
jetsetters as they explore the wonderful fictional country of
with a heavy dose of intrigue and humour. Unfortunately for them, the
local dictator Javier (Greg Stitch) believes that both these women are
rich and wishes to exploit them.
things don't according to plan for Javier which results in disaster and
unfortunately the humour that made the TV series so great is
unfortunately left at the door. Things become quite childish as a game
of cat and mouse begins. There are however some very amusing scenes in
the movie but for the majority, the filler taints the comical moments of
a rather ridiculous story. I did like how Glen Robbins can to the rescue
at the end of the story as Kel but once again, both he and Peter were
neglected in what could have been a spectacular Kath and Kim story.
Interestingly enough, the extras included in this release are the
defining moments of the film with over 1 hour of amusing anecdotes and
stories. Video and audio is exceptional but once again, Kath &
Kimderella the Movie is a film to stay clear of, especially if you
enjoyed the TV series like myself.
but this one is a Fountain Lake stinker!
