Product Description

The special feature length episode of the popular BBC sitcom features Edina having a crisis, Patsy being thrown out of Oddbins and Saffy falling in love as the comedy moves from Val d'Isere to Chelsea. One of the highlights of the Autumn 1996 BBC schedule, and the last ever show (until the next last ever show), this video features a special twenty minute documentary to complement the show and unbroadcastable out-takes from this episode.

From Amazon.co.uk

Absolutely Fabulous was first broadcast in 1992 and became an instant hit. Originally a sketch on the French and Saunders Show, Jennifer Saunders saw its potential and created one of the most ground-breaking and debauched comedies on British TV. Centred around the hip London fashion scene the series follows Edina (Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley), two women who refuse to grow up and are constantly on a mission to lose weight, gorging themselves with cocaine and/or champagne, endlessly throwing parties (or throwing up at parties), and sporting outrageous outfits which were the height of fashion at the time--honestly sweetie! The superb comic performances offered star status to Julia Sawalha as Edina's straight-laced daughter and Jane Horrocks as the sublimely dippy Bubble, and re-invented the careers of Joanna Lumley and June Whitfield. Saunders meanwhile secured her status as one of the top female comedians Britain has ever produced. Although its consciously chic clothing looks a little dated now, its mad characterisations endure and the jokes remain as hilariously slick and apt as ever.

Ab Fab remains a landmark in TV since it was the first time that female comedians and writers had had the freedom and exposure to satirise problems close to their own heart, from their own perspective. With Feminist writers claiming that the ideals of feminism were dead in the 1990s and that female concerns were moving in the wrong direction--towards the "Laddette Culture"--and reports claiming that careers were taking a central role, forcing motherhood onto the back-burner, the series sought to embody and satirise these new supposedly "female" characteristics. As the show continued to grow in popularity both in Britain and the States, plans were made to transfer the formula to America. However, as with many other great British series, the content was considered too risky for American audiences due to the amount of sex and drug references. Thus domestic audiences breathed a sigh of release that their beloved Ab Fab would forever stay British to the core. --Nikki Disney

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 out of 5 Fab 20 Sep 2008
By Bianca White VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very clever of Jennifer Saunders to have Saffy fall for someone just as selfish and manipulative as her mother Edina and one fears that Saffy will never break the cycle of chores and bullying she seems to have been born to endure. Ill-matched with the spoiled and petulant Paolo, the wedding plans progress with all the usual fare of visual feasts, celebrity cameos and outrageous one-liners.
Highly enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous finale! 22 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Well here it is, the final ever outing for TVs most drunken duo, Eddy and Patsy. Preparing for a trip to the fancy ski resort Val D'isere, Eddy is floored by the news that daughter Saffie has agreed to get married, a fact which Patsy revels in, as it means she'll be able to move in and out of her flat above Oddbins. However, Eddy puts it to the back of her mind and sets out to learn how to snowboard. A night out leads to them trashing their chalet, and next day Eddy is off skiing, where she meets with someone she thought she'd never see:God!
Act 2 returns them to home, where Saffie plans her impending wedding to the slimy Paolo, Eddy believes she is Jesus, and Paolo and his super-rich parents arrive for dinner. While Patsy meets a face from the past, Eddy takes charge of the wedding and sets out to make it an event to remember. But will it all end in tears? This fabulous DVD comprises the 2-part "Last Shout" shown in 1996, and has some hilarious lines and characters. Buy it now!

'Absolutey Fabulous - A Life' is one of the funniest video autobibographies about Edwina and Patsy's bizarra and whacky life together. A truely entaining look over the years for serious Ab Fab viewers to reflect, recall, and re laugh at, all on one excellent video. Even the new humor whereby Edwina sweety is stuck in her mothers Help the Aged charity shop looking at used batteries and copper bells provides a subtle form of humour which is indeed one of the many qualities of this series sucess. A must buy for any true fans of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fabulous! sweetie, darlings 14 Oct 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Absolutely Fabulous, if you didnt already know, is the tale of a shopping, alcohol/cigarette/drug addicted, PR who hasnt quite left the 60s and has a love for fashion especially Lacroix. It involves her best friend, her straight laced daughter, her mother, and her brainless office employer. Absolutely Fabulous has all the ingredients that a good sitcom should have, and more. These three episodes reflect that. Iso - tank is very funny - the idea of Bubble, actually knowing what she is doing, and the idea of Bubble actually doing SOMEthing, is enough to crack you up for hours! Birthday is fantastic, Eddy gets the 40th birthday blues, and makes life hell for everyone at her birthday party. The highlight of this, is definitely, when Eddy and Patsy get the kareoke machine at the end, and sing 'This Wheels on Fire' the themetune to AbFab! Magazine - we finally get to see where Patsy works! This is a really great episode, with great appearances from Kathy Burke, Dawn French, and Adrian Edmondson. All of these episode, will have u laughing, till your sides split - it is guaranteed. If you havent seen these episodes, and like AbFab, then WATCH them. Also if u are just looking for a place to start, with AbFab then I would recommend these three episodes as they are pure class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ab Fab Funny 13 Aug 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I have never laughed so much in ages, this video shows Jennifer Saunders at her best, playing the hilarious Edina Monsoon with some of the best lines in comedy heard for years, you never stop laughing through the episode Hospital where she has to go through an operation with 'sensory deprevation and back up drugs' to have an acupuncture needle removed from her toe!, as always patsy has to join her friend and decides to have a face lift because she is doing a 'kiss and tell' story in Hello magazine about her liason with a politician. In death eddies father has died and she goes into mourning due to the fact that she has put on 12 inches of fat all over her body, this episode shows Patsy's true character when eddie decides to spend all her money and contemplates who she will leave her house to when she dies. Of course if patsy wants the house she has to mourn eddies father and go to the funeral because eddies dad would want her to be there if she wants the house, cue an hilarious grave side scene when pasty drunkenly falls in to an open grave while eddie lands face down on her fathers coffin, it also includes the fantastic line by june Whitfield 'we've been married a long time I've had longer to get used to the idea of him dying'. In Morocco the girls go off on a fashion shoot that never actually happens and are joined by Saffy who Patsy decides to sell to the highest bidder, this episode shows a flashback to the days when Patsy had a sex change and was a man for a year 'until it fell off' as Eddie tells Saffy.
