Editor's Note
Written by Dean Craig and directed by comedic veteran Frank Oz, DEATH AT A FUNERAL finds a well-to-do British family attempting to bury their patriarch amidst a backdrop of secrets, revelations, rivalries, and illicit pharmaceuticals. While the dutiful Daniel (Matthew MacFadyen) stoically contends with major roadblocks in planning his father's funeral, including being presented with the wrong body, others connected with the family have catastrophes of their own, including the anxious Simon (Alan Tudyk), who is engaged to Martha (Daisy Donovan), and mistakenly takes a hallucinogen to calm his nerves. Lurking in the background is a mysterious stranger (Peter Dinklage) who threatens to send the chaotic proceedings over the brink.

A charming mix of high- and lowbrow humor, DEATH AT A FUNERAL is a lively farce that makes the most of its hijinks-filled script and topnotch cast. In addition to excellent performances by MacFadyen (PRIDE & PREJUDICE) and Tudyk (SERENITY), the film features fine turns by Donovan, Andy Nyman, and former Swinging London sweetheart Jane Asher. Easily Oz's best movie since the giddily silly BOWFINGER, DEATH showcases the director's knack for working with large ensembles, and will appeal to fans of his earlier romp IN & OUT, as well as to aficionados of biting British comedy.

Expert Review Death at a Funeral (2007) - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Josh Lasser Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 7/2/2011 10:07 AM
I will freely admit that I'm a sucker for any of those British comedy movies with tons of characters where the storylines kind of sort of temporarily and only momentarily intersect.  Perhaps, in fact, I'm just a sucker for British comedies.  Sit me in front of Love, Actually; Four Weddings and a Funeral; heck, even Bridget Jones' Diary and I have an absolutely fantastic time.  There is a laid back way in which the films are crafted and build towards their conclusion that I find truly enjoyable.  They are filled with heart, humor, and even the occasionally raunchy joke.  They are a joy to watch and told in a way which I don't think Americans have quit mastered.  Death at a Funeral, Frank Oz's 2007 film, not the Americanized 2010 version, is another perfect example of the genre....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Box Office
"[D]irector Frank Oz comes back strong with this absolutely uproarious British comedy of no manners." 06/22/2007 p.59

USA Today
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The lack of propriety and solemnity is precisely what makes this comic farce so uproariously funny." 08/17/2007 p.10D

Sight and Sound
"Macfadyen crumples very endearingly as his character succumbs to the tide of mishaps, and there are showreel moments too for Kris Marshall..." 11/01/2007 p.54

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "Frank Oz's frantic farce tickles thanks to a rapid-fire stream of slapstick gags and gallows humour." 11/01/2007 p.64

Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "Impeccable comic timing ensures the gags flow fast, while some delightfully ludicrous predicaments keep things fresh." 10/19/2007 p.89

Los Angeles Times
"DEATH AT A FUNERAL is a lethal farce, combining hints of THE LAVENDER HILL MOB, doses of Joe Orton and a smidgen of the Farrelly brothers' scatology in its mix." 08/17/2007
