Death at a Funeral

Critics Consensus

Death At A Funeral is a rousing British farce, with enough slapstick silliness to overcome its faults.

Audience Reviews for Death at a Funeral

    This is one of those hilarious British comedies that deserved more attention. It's hilarious and the cast shine in their roles. The story allows for a lot of slapstick style humour, but it also allows all the character actors to have fun in their roles. I haven't seen the US remake of the film and I've been reluctant to watch it. I enjoyed this movie when it was at the cinema and have finally found time to enjoy it all over again. The only real negative I have for the film is that the ensemble can't overcome the concepts shortcomings. The film lags in places and that causes the pacing to fall flat. It's the quiet moments that work and you'll remember some of those one-liners more than the slapstick. Worthy British comedy film. 25/03/2020

    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

    I very much enjoyed this film, and I thought it was a fine comedy with a great cast. I found that the film had a good story, with plenty of effective gags to make it a worthwhile comedy to watch. I'm really starting to love British comedies, and they really have a unique sense of humor. This is just a well done film, and the cast here are great in their parts. Frank Oz is a great director and he makes another good film with this one. This is a zany comedy that is a must see if you love something eccentric, and it's most certainly that. This is a smartly written film that has some great performances. The film is one of best comedies that I've seen, and Frank Oz is a good director able to comprehend the comedic medium. The laughs are plentiful, and this is a smart comedy that doesn't use stupid humor to create its humor. The film is funny from start to finish. This is a very good film with a unique plot, and it really stands out. There is a lot of good elements that make this film good and is a must see if you're in the mood for a great comedy, and then check this film out. The very good script compliments the memorable acting. You do not want to pass up this fun comedy. Frank Oz has made another great film and this is a memorable comedy that has plenty of laughs. I thought that this comedy was one of the most original comedies in quite some time and the great cast make this an effective film that is never dull and always entertaining. A very funny film that has some great moments, Death at a Funeral is an accomplished film, and is simply put a wonderful film.
