Movie Summary

Director:
Frank Oz
Released:
2007
Rating:
R
This nutty British comedy observes with jet black humor the myriad of outrageous calamities that befall an eccentric English clan with more than a few skeletons in its closets, when its patriarch dies an unexpected death. Soon, every complication imaginable - including the wrong corpse in the coffin, the accidental consumption of hallucinogenic drugs that causes uncontrollable exhibitionism, and the disclosure of the deceased's closeted kinky homosexuality - befall the grief-stricken mourners.
