Death at a Funeral, this season?s funniest comedy, follows the twists and turns of a dysfunctional British family as they gather to mourn the passing of their patriarch. It's the day of his father's funeral and Daniel wants everything to go according to plan but his brother is only interested in chatting up a pretty girl at the service, his cousin's straight-laced boyfriend is convinced that someone is alive in the coffin, and a rogue bottle of hallucinogenic pills keeps popping up. If that isn't enough, a mysterious visitor from his father's past threatens to expose the patriarch's secret unless he is paid a princely sum. It is up to Daniel to do everything he can to make sure the service goes off without a hitch by holding his oddball family in-line, keeping his father's secret from leaking to the guests, and finding the darn bottle of pills.
