Death At A Funeral

Plot
Responsible tax accountant Aaron (Rock) has his hands full at his father's funeral when the arrivals of his feckless brother (Lawrence), an extended family with secrets, a blackmailer (Dinklage) with a bombshell to drop, a mislabelled bottle of drugs and the wrong corpse all coincide in comic mayhem.


Verdict
Dead funny and enjoyable: who'd have thought it?
