Think of Keeping Up Appearances' social climber extraordinaire Hyacinth Bucket (Patricia Routledge), and how about that chocolate-guzzling vicar, Geraldine Grainger (Dawn French) of The Vicar of Dibley. And who can forget Sybil Fawlty (Prunella Scales), whose cry of "Basil!" still inspires fear and laughter after nearly thirty years? Join them and their talented, funny colleagues for this celebration of their careers and contributions. Combining new interviews with clips of their funniest moments, The Funny Ladies of British Comedy takes you behind the scenes of your favorite Britcoms, and answers the question, "Who makes these funny ladies laugh?"]]>

The clips are on the short side, and the documentary runs for little more than an hour. The extras are somewhat interesting extended interviews that in some cases duplicate what's in the documentary.
So, all in all, a DVD worth renting for a few chuckles, but not one most of us will want to buy for repeated viewings. By the way, almost all of the shows highlighted in this documentary are on DVD, so if you own those sets, then there's little reason to pick this up.
Other reviews where saying that the Clips are short. But i really don't see that a problem. The clips showing on this dvd is to show what they are talking about to keep the viewer with the actress. Some of the clips I have the whole set from several shows. I really didn't expect to show a good chunk of an episode.
This is a good buy as i got for 2.99. cant really go wrong their. But only one minor thing i had is they don't tell all the actress growing up Stories. But it's really no big deal to me. My main concern was the interviews and they did a good job.
Also has Extended interviews in the special features. A plus for anyone want to know more about their Favorite Actresses. As for mine are Patricia Routleade, Mollie Sugden, and Dame Judi Dench.
This made a good addition to my British Comedy collection of movies
