Having seen a co-passenger on a flight to New Zealand rocking with laughter over this film, I chose it from the film menu and did exactly the same. I just had to watch it again on DVD at home as my laughter and that of my husband and friends would have disturbed the whole plane! It's entertainment was by no means diminished by watching it a second time. Be prepared for it with a box of tissues for the tears streaming down your faces and tummy aches from laughing so much. I have not enjoyed a film for such a long time. From the moment the film starts it is one catastrophe after another and the actors, all good British actors, play their parts extremely well. Why wasn't this film given more publicity first time round? It is certainly one of my all time favourites!

I originally watched this on an night flight plane journey from Heathrow to Houston. Aware of my fellow travellers, I tried hard to keep my laughter contained, but to no avail. Rarely do I laugh out loud to any comedies, but this film is so well cast, well paced and fundamentally well written it is hard not to split your sides. Watched again in the comfort of the living room, it didn't fail to please at the same original level. Quite a bit of 'language' so not one for the kiddies, or oldies with a sensitive disposition, but one of the best comedies I have ever watched. It has taken pride of place in my collection and I recommend it to anyone.

If you haven't seen this film it is a must. My other half and I have watched now 3 maybe 4 times and it is hilarious. You know what's coming but it is still funny. Some great actors/actresses not sure how they kept a straight face while filming.

Very British and full of bad taste humour. If that's what you enjoy, this film is packed with laugh out loud moments. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Bought this DVD for my fathers birthday and we watched it tonight. None of us had ever heard of it before but the cast list was impressive. However there is always that worry that you may not have heard about it because it was that bad! We didnt need to worry though it was very very funny. Sometimes a little over the top and no subjects are taboo, but we didnt mind we still all laughed out loud.
So if you dont mind a little nudity, bathroom humour and lots of black death jokes then you will also like this! The storyline too does not always go the way you might expect! Excellent and wonderful cast too.

Loved it. Have lent this to so many folk and they all said it very funny, quirky British sense of humour but funny. Buy it now!

Like other reviewers, I saw this on a flight to the States for a Christmas break, and laughed so much my immediate neighbour thought I must be unwell. The film concerns a respectable middle class family funeral, with the family and friends gathered to pay their respects - well thats the idea - to the late dear departed father, husband and friend. But the motley group cannot know what terrible secret the deceased has held.
It all turns into pure farce, very 'laugh out loud' funny, many sight gags and totally preposterous non-PC situations. I saw it again last night with my family, who hadn't seen it before. and all were crying with laughter, Great entertainment.

This film is the funniest I have ever seen, I watched it with no previous knowledge of the plot or what kind of film it was as my husband's friend loaned it to us and we put it on one rainy Sunday afternoon - we laughed for the rest of the day. A gem!
