Product Description

Product Description

Death At A Funeral follows the comic twists and turns as a family gather for the funeral of their father. Brothers Daniel (Matthew Macfadyen) and Robert (Rupert Graves) are at each other’s throats until a mysterious guest from their father’s past threatens to unveil an earth-shattering family secret. As the brothers struggle to hide the truth from their family and friends, riotous mayhem and a hilarious sequence of events ensue, resulting in what sets out to be a dignified private affair turning into the mother of all funerals that no guest will soon forget.

From Amazon.co.uk

The latest comedy from director Frank Oz, Death at a Funeral unusually sets a funeral at the heart of a film that’s trying to generate laughs. It does prove to be quite a hurdle, but it’s to the credit of those involved that the film proves to be a worthwhile and diverting way to spend an hour and a half.

Starring Rupert Graves, Matthew MacFadyen and Peter Egan among a talented ensemble cast, Death at a Funeral ticks most of the boxes you’d expect of its concept, but does throw in a few twists of its own, too. There are family secrets, mix-ups, battling characters and the funeral itself to deal with, and Oz proves skilful at marrying the threads together.

Death at a Funeral manages to generate a good few laughs on the way to its fine ending, but it does have its problems. There are perhaps one too many contrivances to put up with, and the script doesn’t really do the director and his cast too many favours. In spite of its slight running time, it also manages to feel a little too long.

But Death at a Funeral is still, despite these problems, a perfectly competent British comedy, and a useful way to fill a night in. Don’t expect a masterpiece, and chances are you’ll have some fun with it. --Jon Foster

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.

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!

This British comedy set in a house hosting a funeral with a small central cast has the feel of a stage production about it. At first it seems that the performances and scenarios are a tad over-the-top (more as you'd expect from a theatre performance) but the main character Daniel is grounded in reality and stops the film from descending into the ridiculous.

Daniel is the loyal son whose father is being buried, he's organised (and forked out for) the funeral and is dealing not only with his grief, but also with living in the shadow of his brother, a successful novelist whom everyone is very excited to meet. Just as it looks like this is going to become a very bland middle-class comedy drama, a series of events turn the day into a farce and the results are often genuinely funny. The film impressively manages to not become overly sentimental; with the strained relationship between two brothers being a key plotline it would have been easy to have become sanctimonious cheese but it avoids it.

A toilet incident, hallucinogenic drugs, and a blackmailing dwarf all manage to add humour but it has to be said that you see each joke coming. As long as you don't expect too much from the film and accept that this is a slow flick which gathers pace halfway through rather than ground-breaking British comedy, then you'll be able to enjoy it for what it is.

In a nutshell: A comedy which succeeds in making you laugh, it doesn't show you anything particularly new but this is still an entertaining film. I've not yet seen the American remake but I suspect it isn't as well acted or as subtle when it comes to the emotional side of things.

One of the funniest I have ever seen in the British comedy genre. The midget, the doped guy, the wheel-chaired old man (who figures in the unforgettable last scene), the squabbling brothers and of course the coffin provide unadulterated joy. I saw this on a flight and was laughing so loudly that co-passengers kept looking, and many switched to this movie instead of what they were watching.

I can't even stop laughing when I'm telling people about this film. It's just the funniest thing I've watched in a long time. There aren't many films I can watch over and over, but this is one of my top ten films of all times. I absolutely loved it. All the characters are fantastic. Brilliant casting.

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.
