    The humor manages to be simultaneously sophisticated, supremely silly and very dark. show more

    The lack of propriety and solemnity is precisely what makes this comic farce so uproariously funny. show more

    "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

    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!
