Il film punta tutto sul divertimento e sulle risate, e in gran parte delle scene ci riesce alla perfezione. Certamente è un'opera demenziale e piuttosto stupida, ma riesce perfettamente nel suo intento. Le situazioni paradossali e grottesche che si vengono a creare divertono con estrema facilità e portano risate anche allo spettatore più scettico. Porta sicuramente una buona dose di buon umore e nel complesso è il film perfetto per un po' di sano ed ignorante divertimento.

An excellent and overlooked film filled with gut busting laughs.

Definitely one of those comedies you need to let breathe in order for it to have its full effects. From the get-go, you're presented with a series of mini-narratives and characters that seemingly feature little to no opportunity to produce amusement or quality laughs. But again, you got to give this one time. By the midpoint of Frank Oz's "Death At A Funeral," I was most assuredly hooked, as the events that unfolded from that point on were far better than the plodding and pedestrian beats laid out by the film's first half. The film's second half is everything I expected the entirety of the movie to be; dark, twisted, hilarious, and memorable. Yes, it's still not particularly nice-looking in its execution, but the jokes were - finally - there. A nice little exercise in how patience can ultimately reward the audience.

Reviewed 8.31.17. Perhaps it's my memory of listening to the theatre roar with laughter back in 2007, but even upon additional viewings it never fails to tickle my funny bone. Black, dry, and hysterically unhinged...with 'Valium' or not. An over-the-top looney tunes performance by Alan Tudyk, along with an all-star comedic cast, deliver the British comedy goods. Unless you're the stick in the ass type, it's a great late night laugher.

This is the British version and original version of this film. This is a fantastic comedy sometime dark humor but still hilarious. Peter Dinklage is the only character in both versions of this film and he steals the show as he does in everything he is in. You must watch this version even if you don't like British films it's just that good of a film.

Alan Tudyk steels the show

Funniest movie ever. I saw it when it was still playing in the theaters, and not only did I laugh so hard I couldn't catch my breath, but the rest of the theater was HOWLING with laughter, too! Everyone in my family has laughed till they've cried watching this thing. It starts out a little quirky, then gets amusing, then turns into out right funny which eventually dissolves into absolute hilarity.

Very rediculous, just as I like comedies. The actors did an excellent job. Alan Tudyk stole the show for me!

I am known for my lack of a sense of humor. I found this BRITISH version absolutely hilarious. The 2010 American version sucks canal water.

I'm sorry I saw the remake first. But very well done and pretty hilarious.

To whoever wrote the alleged consensus that Death at a Funeral had "enough slapstick silliness to overcome its faults", I ask ... WHAT FAULTS? IT'S PERFECT!

An immoderately crass burlesque hell bent on playing up annoying eccentricity thinking it is uproariously funny and crashes gravely.

Hysterically funny British comedy about a funeral going wrong thanks to LSD pills, a grumpy wheel chair user, a hypochondriac and a blackmailing midget. Directed by "Yoda" Frank Oz, it combines all the known features of black and politically incorrect British humor. While it starts out somewhat slow and regular, the film burns a real firework of gags in the second half, culminating in one of the funniest and most wonderfully awkward scenes ever. The acting is accordingly excellent, with Brits either trying to keep their composure or losing it altogether. Go see this and you'll laugh tears like I did.

Saw this on 5/4/16
It starts off rather slow and seems to place familiar plot elements, but thanks to a talented cast and some terrific slapstick, death at a funeral manages to be better than the sum of its parts. This is what makes one really laugh out loud, not the stupid self indulgent and self righteous films from America that bear the name of comedy.

A fun, light comedy that proves "When it rains, it pours"

British comedy that is hilarious! Good for a great laugh.

In my top 5 comedies. Smart, sidesplitting, and goofily charming. All characters are relatable, and this clever tongue in cheek British comedy style is much better than most American comedies. I loved it.

Grim, goofy and often charming. Death At A Funeral walks the line between white and blue-collar comedy pretty well. There were some very flat characters though and some of them just kind of blur together. Overall, fun enough to see a time or two.

It started slow, and was so mean-spirited for the first hour. The scenes also started to feel really plodding and repetitive by the end, with scenes that went nowhere and scenes that were just tired. Most of the tension in the first hour just seemed to come from characters acting totally irrational and obviously ignoring the one thing any sane human being would mention or do. It left the characters looking like lunatics, sociopaths or total idiots. The last half hour had some good laughs and I wanted to love this for Peter Dinklage's sake if nothing else, but there was a lot of bad, sad, boring, and pointedly cruel moments to drag it down. Great cast, good concept, but poor writing and lazy jokes left them with too little to work with.

Really british movie. Accidental drug abuse and a gay midget on a funeral. If this doesn't convince you to see this movie I don't know what else could.
