From acclaimed director Frank Oz (In & Out, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) comes "a fast, furious and riotously funny farce" (Maxim) that'll have you dying with laughter!
As the mourners and guests at a British country manor struggle valiantly to "keep a stiff upper lip," a dignified ceremony devolves into a hilarious, no-holds-barred debacle of misplaced cadavers, indecent exposure, and shocking family secrets. Packed with extras including audio commentaries and an uproarious gag reel, Death at a Funeral blows the lid off the proverbial coffin as "the film's delicious comic flourishes... sight gags, slapstick, flawless timing... are served up by an outstanding cast" (O, The Oprah Magazine).

Cast & Crew
I like the cast.
I like this new one mainly because of the cast.
Death at a Funeral does what a good comedy is supposed to do: generate laughter.
LaBute wisely cast comic actors, rather than actors attempting to be comic. Timing and delivery are paramount in comedy, all the more so when the material is as daft as this.
Loved the slapstick, winced at the toilet humor, and mourned that the female performers were given so little to do.
Completely unnecessary and sloppier than it should be. It's also still funny, partly thanks to smart casting in a few key roles and partly because farce this ironclad cannot be denied.
