Death at a Funeral
Source: Catholic News Service
Chaos reigns in this mordant British comedy as family members -- arrogant famous novelist son (Rupert Graves), insecure second son (Matthew MacFadyen) and his exasperated wife (Keeley Hawes), their cousin (Daisy Donovan) and her fiance (Alan Tudyk) -- gather for a patriarchal funeral and everything goes wildly wrong, including a mysterious guest (Peter Dinklage) who threatens a scandalous revelation. Director Frank Oz whips up a skillfully farcical frenzy, and the cast is game, but recommendation must be tempered by an overload of expletives as well as other elements that may offend viewers. Gratuitous and pervasive profanity, rough and crude language, rear male nudity, drug use, homosexual blackmail theme, innuendo and scatological humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
