Misfire spoof on LA's funeral industry, American greed and Brits in Hollywood.

Perhaps the only way to enjoy it is to accept that saying something offensive is better than saying nothing at all. The Evelyn Waugh who wrote The Loved One might have agreed with that, at any rate.

As tame as it is lame...The only thing that offended me about this movie is how it wasted two hours of my life.

Based on Evelyn Waugh's personal novel about his epxeriences when he came to the U.S. about MGM filming BRIDESHEAD REVISITED. It's his take on the English colony at the time. For more info., see Boo Allen's doctoral dissertation on Waugh.
