Wonderfully AB FAB documentary about the hilarious Britcom.
6 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley give us a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of "Absolutely Fabulous" - the ultimate gay/camp/kitsch-icon show of all time!

Full of clips and quips from the show itself and asides from the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, and the Pet Shop Boys. A must-see for any AB FAB fan.
