One review

  • I won’t give away any of the plot, because of all the surprises, twists, and turns. The gist of the story is that a man has died, and his sons are having a dignified service at their home with friends and family in attendance. Everything that can go wrong does. More than everything. The cast handles all the situations with the earnestness one would attempt at a parent’s funeral, despite the fact that it’s screamingly hilarious. The cast is outstanding, and the script is excellent.

    I have no idea how I missed this movie or even whether it was released in America. I haven’t seen Jane Asher in a long time, and it was a pleasure to see her in “Death at a Funeral.”

    Highly recommended.
