Summary: It really had to be a British to dare to do a movie about death ... and be successful. Indeed, if most of the recent comedies I have seen just made me smile, this one brought me to hilarity. I specifically wanted to congratulate Alan Tudyk, who plays his role with an exquisite humour.
Summary: Despite swindling in its title – naming the film Death at a Funeral without anyone actually dying – Frank Oz’s black humour comedy is in fact quite an honest film, fusing realistic funereal incidents to a considerably less realistic whole and letting the audience experience it through the eyes of...
Summary: Death At A Funeral is a remake of a 2007 British comedy by the same name, and is usually not the type of film I go for. For starters, I hate Chris Rock, and I really couldn't see a film about a funeral being all that funny.
Summary: I'm always up for a little dysfunction, and this film delivered. Finding out awkward family secrets is bad enough, but to learn of them during said family member's funeral is infinitely worse.
Summary: One of the funniest films ever! Non-stop hilarious from the moment it starts 'til the very end. Superb ensemble piece, with superior cast; blackest humor possible. (Speaking of which, there is also a black-cast remake of this film, done a few years later, that is excellent, too).
Summary: If the film is so close to the original as to also be pretty much disposable once its over for sharedsorrows.com, at least it as well serves up a healthy amount of laughs during its very brief and brisk run time.
This British version of Death at a Funeral is the absolute funniest!

Summary: Oh my, this is a wildly funny, black comedy! And this British version puts our American version to shame; there's no comparison. Matthew MacFadyen, my favorite actor, is the solid straight man who holds this film together.
Summary: i really liked this movie i got it for my brother he had never seen it he also liked i first saw on tv then looked and looked for it at yard sales or thrifts but deceided to get off ebay great price got in very good time everything was good thanks dee
Summary: This film has a lot of potential but it just falls down in every category. I feel as if the film tries just a bit too hard to be funny and I laughed maybe three times throughout the film as a result.
