Trailer for The Best Comedy of 2007: Death at a Funeral

Now is the time to get acquainted with what is my current pick for best comedy of the year as well as my own favorite film of the year so far, Death at a Funeral, the latest Frank Oz directed film. I had such a hilarious and fun time with this that nothing since has topped it. And sadly, the trailer does not do it justice as most of the great comedy can't be put into a trailer (that's approved for all audiences). But that doesn't mean you can't be introduced to what is going to be a guaranteed huge hit this summer!
Watch the new trailer for Death at a Funeral below:
You can also read my great review of the film from the US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen in early March.
Death at a Funeral was directed by the great Frank Oz, best known as the voice of Yoda in Star Wars but also a great comedy director, and features a great entourage cast of British comedic greats: Matthew Macfadyen, Rupert Graves, Ewen Bremner, and my personal favorite, Alan Tudyk.
Don't forget this movie - it's hitting theaters June 29th! And here's the poster.

Posh people trying to do comedy and maybe it makes posh people laugh who knows? but my personal view on this film is that its pants. a wry smile was all it got from me , much funnier movies out this year Superbad for example much more swearing from a grass roots level and funny and original unlike this film trying to be the new four weddings and a funeral.

I have watched this comedy and I can tell that it is the worst comedy I have ever seen. I'm really dissapointed.

Hi Steffanni, We shall just agree to differ ok? as far as I was concerned it was hilarious ! What were you expecting that never happened for you?. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and mine was that it was an AMAZINGLY FUNNY FILM!. Strangely one of the most popular films was not a comedy.."Attonement" which disapointed me 🙁 I just loved Kris Marshall in "Death At A Funeral" but then this is one English actor who is SUPERB! in everything he does. 🙂
