The Best of the British Best
DO NOT watch this film if you are drinking anything! Water, booze,
whatever, will be sprayed all over who or whatever happens to be in
front of you. Keep a friend: swallow first then open your eyes and
watch this hilarious farce.
Only the British could make this movie. The juxtaposition of
coke-expulsion hilarity and never-crack-a-smile line delivery is in the
DNA of only the British. We Americans could never pull it off.
All the actors are beyond good; deadpan humor, you should pardon the
expression. Discovering this film is like watching Monty Python and the
Holy Grail for the first time...only better.
The premise of a serious, sober occasion, the funeral of a good but
unexpectedly flawed man, is unusual to start with. This is a
compassionate play dealing with outrageous events happening to
vulnerable people. We identify with each one and at the same time
secretly gloat that WE would never find ourselves in such a situation!
The outright fall down funniest member of the cast is an American, and
I don't think the Brits could have pulled off HIS brand of humor. The
characters all are flawed in some socially unacceptable way, but all,
indeed, are good people so you care about what huge asses they make of
This is the funniest film I have ever seen. Hands down..

how is death at a funeral 1 compared to 2? .
I really, really enjoyed watching Death at a Funeral. It is funny in
many different ways. It shows just how a funeral can really stuff up.
Death at a Funeral is about a man who died and one of his sons is
organizing a funeral for him, inviting most of the dead man's family.
During the funeral many things go wrong including a few guys getting
seriously stoned without knowing it and a blackmailer threatening to
expose some dreadful secrets about the dead man's past.
After the first 10 minutes it is almost impossible to stop laughing. It
is amazing how a funeral can be so funny! The characters are brilliant
and even more so is the plot. I really can't remember the last time I
have laughed so much in a movie.
I totally recommend anyone who loves a good laugh to watch this movie.
We were all laughing so hard we had to pause the movie because we
couldn't hear the it! This is the first time I have given over 8/10 to
a comedy movie! Well done Death at a Funeral!.
