When foxy empty nester Kath Day-Knight wins the trip of a lifetime to a tiny European kingdom with her spoilt princess daughter Kim, she embarks on a fairy-tale adventure filled with power, love, lust and even a royal wedding. Accompanied by Kim’s second best friend, Sharon Strzelecki, they find themselves on a journey that will change their lives forever.
Embracing everything that has made them into home-grown TV stars with their unique brand of Aussie humour, Kath & Kim's foray onto the big screen is an endearing and hilarious romp.Whether you're a fan or you've only just discovered the considerable talents of Gina Riley and Jane Turner, KATH & KIMDERELLA has broad appeal - in line with their humour. Winking and nudging its audience as it goes, you can be assured of a laugh a minute in this sparkling true blue frolic that goes from the suburbs in Fountain Lakes to a grand castle in Italy with magnificent views.It takes no time at all before the opening credits to learn (or be reminded) exactly what are the characteristics that make Kath and Kim unique. Kath (Turner) with her trademark frizzy blond hair is the perennial foxy lady, who finds a way to slide through life painlessly, while her brattish daughter Kim (Riley), with the long hair, pout and attitude, is a bit like Miss Piggy - everything is about 'moi'. Turner and Riley have written a clever script crammed with business. It's filled with all kinds of humour - visual and scripted - with one-liners galore and clever references that range from politics to wart ointment.The sight of Kath, Kim and Sharon (played with puppy-like enthusiasm by the irrepressible Magda Szubanski) as they arrive at their Italian holiday destination decked in Italian designer gear, is one to cherish. Rob Sitch is seriously good as the suave King Javier with the Cruella DeVil hair colouring and whose obsession with shoes plays out in fine form. Richard E. Grant is supremely funny as the poker-faced man behind the man behind the man on the throne.Movies, fairy tales, TV shows and musicals all get their fair share of satirical references, but the film belongs unequivocally to Turner and Riley, whose chemistry, comic timing and sheer bravado is highly contagious, leaving us uplifted and well satisfied by the outing.
