Be ready for a very nerve racking, strange, somewhat unbelieveable and predictable chain of events that keep building to a frenzy that some might find irritating. It's a no brainer that entertains with a few disgusting belly laughs; has foul language that doesn't add to the movie; some very poor directing spots and acting that should have required several more takes, ******** not terrible.

Still, if for the most part Death at a Funeral is as tame as the tasteful parlor where most of its action takes place, it manages to explode one taboo, in casting mostly black actors in roles originally played by whites. Full Review

The movie version of karaoke. It sings the same tune as the 2007 British underground hit, but it's a little, and at times a lot, off-key. Full Review

The only death at this funeral was that of a good movie. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Death at a Funeral does what a good comedy is supposed to do: generate laughter. The humor gradient is lopsided - the second half, which builds comedic momentum, is significantly funnier than the first half, which is mostly set-up. Still, any such unevenness aside, the overall impression is one of enjoyability. Full Review

This slavishly faithful update... fails to tap into anything culturally specific or uniquely funny in its Pasadena setting or its theoretically looser, livelier black cast. And because the characters are so flat, we couldn't care less about the blows to their sense of propriety. Full Review
