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 bodies, indecent exposure, and shocking family secrets. Packed with extras including audio commentaries and an hilarious gag reel, Death at a Funeral blows the lid off the proverbial coffin.
As Hughie Green said, "Take the money or open the box?"

Take a stellar British cast add a funeral, a very small person, a wheelchair bound man with the need for toilet assistance, hallucenogenic anti-anxiety pills, dodgy photos, blackmail, assault, dodgy carpentry and very nearly manslaughter. Unfortunately the end result is less than the sum of its parts. Abundant talent, abundantly wasted. A cast enjoying making a film is not the same as a cast making a film that an audience will enjoy.
