Critic Reviews for Death at a Funeral
It's no classic, but it did prompt me to watch those great old Ealing Alec Guinness comedies again.
In the end the knockabout humour totally destroys the glimmers of spiteful sophistication which would have made it much funnier.
You'll wince and fidget and groan, and finally wonder at the nerve of the film-makers who thought they could get away with this.
I hear the script was funny, which is hard to believe: this is grim, misjudged and seems to go on for ever.
Audience Reviews for Death at a Funeral
Hysterically funny British comedy about a funeral going wrong thanks to LSD pills, a grumpy wheel chair user, a hypochondriac and a blackmailing midget. Directed by "Yoda" Frank Oz, it combines all the known features of black and politically incorrect British humor. While it starts out somewhat slow and regular, the film burns a real firework of gags in the second half, culminating in one of the funniest and most wonderfully awkward scenes ever. The acting is accordingly excellent, with Brits either trying to keep their composure or losing it altogether. Go see this and you'll laugh tears like I did.
It is a very one-note film, however the well-constructed jokes come one after another. Hilarious and at times charming, Death at a Funeral is ultimately worth seeing, however if only for the laughs. Once it's over, there is little to remember or admire. However, it deserves credit for being a successfully funny comedy. Those are hard to find.
A very funny movie, really enjoyed the guy who mistaken took acid before the funeral and the movie could have went on and on but it did not it had one of those deadline opps out of money endings and that took away from the enjoyment of what could have been an outstanding film, but all in all I did a lot of laughing. 3 1/2 stars 11-21-12
