  • "Wrong" is the operative word with Death at a Funeral, which in the first very funny 30 minutes shows its hand and then, unfortunately, continues to wave that hand frantically for the next hour. show more

  • The mostly British ensemble can do this stuff in their sleep, but Macfadyen and Donovan and Graves, especially, work up the necessary antic angst and silliness. show more

  • This topsy-turvy funeral produces a number of smiles, giggles, pleasant guffaws and several solid, sustained laughs. Not a bad batting average as comedies go. show more

    This is one of the funiest movies we have seen in a long time. It is irreverant, bad language, and absolutely totally enjoyable and hysterical!

    Definitely one of my absolute favorite movies! Laughed hysterically at the theater and have watched it several times on DVD now and have laughed just as hard. Love it!
