Coming to Blockbusters and Netflix on February 26. If you want the “early bird” special, you can buy the DVD on both Amazon and eBay for $19.99 (international shipping from UK applied). If you are a big fan of the British cinema from late 1990s to today’s day and you keep Love Actually, Notting Hill, About a Boy, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and Bridget Jones Diary in the most visible and reachable area of your house – then there is no excuse for you to miss the next hot and happening import from the United Kingdom.
Death at a Funeral is not only funny, but it’s witty and wicked. It is not, by no means, a comedy of action – a so-called slapstick comedy in the likes of Charlie Chaplin or Mr. Bean, but it will have your laughing with it’s dry English humor. The films does an amazing job of turning a tragic event, such as death, into a light comedy. The film has all the British aspects that we all love, left-hand driving, rain, cigarettes, bad teeth, amazing countryside and proper diction. And that’s what we love the Brits for! Seriously, I felt like packing up and moving to the country side of Wales…Sheep and Bourbon, here I come!
