Death at a Funeral
Last rites... and wrongs.
Let's hope they got the right body this time...
This British comedy starts off slowly but the hilarity tempo soon builds with tradtional Brit humour. A diverse family has gathered at their parents' home to bury their recently-departed dad. Being a comedy, they're all a bit eccentric in the best British way. There's also a deep dark secret connecting the two brothers and dad. After a mixup with the wrong body, the family set about the funeral, trying to get things to run smoothly while the odd characters threaten to expose the family secret.
