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.

Oz goes back to the well and taps into British humor, which has been so influential over the years for him, going back to The Muppet Show" in the 70s

It's no classic, but it did prompt me to watch those great old Ealing Alec Guinness comedies again.

A pleasantly unpleasant comedy that belatedly delivers. You won't die laughing but you shouldn't expire from boredom either.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 2, 2007
A patchy but silly caper that will be dead funny (sorry) for anyone who's recently wrestled with family hysteria. Perfect pre-Christmas fare then.

Scatological grue, nudity, swearing, drug-taking and the chance to watch two grown men wrestle a midget...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/6

A sole potty joke is unnecessarily crass, but for the most part this is joyfully funny.

Goofy burial digs up family secrets; not for kids.

The film begins with a vaguely tired joke, but this just makes what follows that much more delicious.

Weighing in at a brisk 90 minutes, the picture does have the advantage of brevity, and on screen no less than off, there's much to be said for a quick send-off.

Very funny and entertaining, a sometimes-dark comedy somewhere between Four Weddings and a Funeral and Meet the Parents.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 21, 2007
It's a British comedy that shows the minor miracles that can be performed with a cast of (mostly) British actors, a drawing room, and a funny idea.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Once everything is finally in place, Death at a Funeral springs to comedic life with such speed and assurance that it's hard to complain.

Another Frank Oz comedy with a mean streak, this time with such delights as an old man defecating in his wheelchair.
