The celebrity roast of a fictional girl that everyone has loved.
3 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Comedian Joan Rivers salutes her former best friend and fictional creation Heidi Abromowitz. To quote Joan Rivers, "Show me a woman with a naturally beautiful body, and I'll show you a tramp!". Heidi is the queen of all tramps and is the subject of this celebrity studded roast. While not as funny as the book ("The Life and Hard Times of Heidi Abromowitz" by Joan Rivers) on which the character is based, this short made-for-cable special will produce the intended giggles and a couple hearty laughs.

Fans of the comedian and the book will appreciate this the most. 7/10 for fans. 5/10 for others.
