It's rarely a good sign when a movie feels obliged to add the words 'a fable' beneath its main title -- and Undertaking Betty is no exception.

The flick feels like Six Feet Under meets Waking Ned Devine written on a 5th-grade reading level.

Audience Reviews for Undertaking Betty (Plots with a View)

Here's an interesting movie that follows two individuals whom have loved each other for many years, and one day Boris's love interest decides to take matters into her hands and fake her own death so that she could be with Boris. Fascinating story plot that is filled with some intriguing sense-of-humor. Great cast- Alfred Molina, Brenda Blethyn, Christopher Walken, and Naomi Watts. Worth seeing!
