Clever, wily black comedy

"All I wanted to do today was to give my father a dignified send-off. Is that really so much to ask?"

Only the English filmmaking industry could successfully employ the concept of a sombre funeral service as a foundation on which to construct an eccentric black comedy. A clever, lively creation, 2007's Death at a Funeral is the latest comedy to be helmed by American director Frank "... read more

A highly entertaining dark comedy!

A dysfunctional British family attends a funeral, where secrets are revealed and hilarious chaos ensues!

Let me just start by saying this: If you aren't into dry humor or dark humor, you will most likely dislike this movie a lot. I happen to love both, so I highly enjoyed it. Like a lot of dark comedies out there, or should I say most out there, the plot has death ensuing all the ch... read more

A comedy of errors

The BBC website describes 'Death At A Funeral' as a desperate bid to marry a Richard Curtis comedy of middle-class manners with the taste-free gross-out style of the Farrelly Brothers. I can't say I really like those directors, but I can say I enjoyed this. Any film that can combine midget wrestling, hallucinogenic drugs and scatology at a funeral and still retain some class deserves some praise. ... read more

"Watched January Review by PvtCaboose91 As the above review also notes, a strong cast & excellent script work well together to make this film memorable despite the cliches on hand. I personally really enjoyed it & would definitely watch it again. Thanks to jaytoast for the recommendation! Just a thought: Peter Dinklage is a better actor than he seems to get credit for."

Film Journal 2013 (335 movies items)

"13/1 There's one big problem with this dry British comedy: All it's jokes are a bit flat. I guess it thinks that it's dark and hence feels the need to not go all-out on some of the material, but the result becomes needlessly PG due to this. People take psychedelic drugs by accident and the most they do is walk around naked or talk to the walls. The blackmail-plot is the only actually funny thing on display here, and the resolution to that is dull. As is the whole film, really. I don't honestl"

"Originally I thought I'm about to watch a remake of this movie, but it appeared to be the original, so yeah... Well, it's british and british movies are just british. A mix of boring and black comedy. I felt like I wasted my time. ~..~ "

An average movie

“Since I have weak spot for Frank Oz work as a director, I was really eager to check this movie, especially since the ratings were actually pretty good. Eventually, even though I really really wanted to like it, I still think that something was missing. I mean, I really loved the concept, the cast (mostly made of unknowns) was really good and there were definitely some funny bits here and there but it just didn't completely worked out for me. Indeed, during the whole thing, I was waiting for something really hilarious to happen but I didn't happen at all and I thought they were streching the jokes for way too long (for example, when Alan Tudyk takes some drugs by accident, of course, it is funny, for the first 5-10 minutes but it goes on and on until the very end of the movie). As a result,” read more
