Critic Reviews for Death at a Funeral
It's no classic, but it did prompt me to watch those great old Ealing Alec Guinness comedies again.
Death at a Funeral never quite hits the farcical heights it's aiming for, but it's still got plenty going for it, thanks to an excellent cast and experienced direction.
When turned loose on accessible, not altogether-insincere dark-comedy scenarios, Frank Oz understands humor at a molecular level of structure, volume and timing. An impossible last-shot stinger aside, "Death at a Funeral" is farce at its most flawless.
Lazy comedy, and it's only made passable mainly by its manic cast and pace.
Audience Reviews for Death at a Funeral
It is a very one-note film, however the well-constructed jokes come one after another. Hilarious and at times charming, Death at a Funeral is ultimately worth seeing, however if only for the laughs. Once it's over, there is little to remember or admire. However, it deserves credit for being a successfully funny comedy. Those are hard to find.
A very funny movie, really enjoyed the guy who mistaken took acid before the funeral and the movie could have went on and on but it did not it had one of those deadline opps out of money endings and that took away from the enjoyment of what could have been an outstanding film, but all in all I did a lot of laughing. 3 1/2 stars 11-21-12
Funny funny FUNNY-ASS movie!!! :) I'm just sayin.
