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. There are some memorable scenes - the tussle in the study with Peter Dinklage and Alan Tudyk tripping out are absolute screams, both of which must be seen to be believed. Loved it, and would recommend over the American remake any day.

Very well written, but exceptionally unfunny.

Man. This is just not a good movie. There are a few amusing parts (thank you, Alan Tudyk), but the main conflict of the movie is very immoral, the central characters are grating, and the conclusion is extremely smaltzy. Not sure what they were trying for, but the result is a very unfunny, sappy mess where you are left with the painful realization of what a waste of 2 hours that was.

Come on! Got to give it to the Brits. A touch of Benny Hill humor,a disfunctional family (that most of us have) and some silly lines and moments, this one is surely a hilarious film. Even Oprah found this one to be a "delicious slapstick comedy that will have you dying with laughter!" Put in in your collection and enjoy with a good glass of wine and friends. Not to be missed.

Death Has Complications!

Id recommend this film for those who like their comedy a bit on the black side. This is the kind of humor the Brits do so well - intelligent, expertly delivered dialog and action that can make even the most unlikely situations hilarious.

The father of an upper class British family has died and son Daniel (Matthew MacFadyen) and his wife Jane (Keeley Hawes) have agreed to host the funeral and give his dearly departed father a dignified send off. After the mortuary first delivers the wrong corpse the tone is set for all the wrong things to happen. While he waits for the right body to show up, he also has to make sure all the guests show up so the service will be flawless. Naturally, the result is anything but, for a number of reasons: firstly, there's that problem with the eulogy, whic...
