Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I love Frank Oz and I hope every single time he comes out with a movie that I love it, too. Sometimes I do (What About Bob?), sometimes I don't (Stepford Wives). But his gold to shit ratio is pretty strong. BOWFINGER, DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS, DARK CRYSTAL, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS... He's given us some great material as a director. Sounds like DEATH AT A FUNERAL has turned out to be one of the good ones. This isn't the first positve review we've gotten. I can't wait to see it... if only to see Peter Dinklage, Alan Tudyk, Ewan Brumner and Andy Nyman play together. Enjoy the review!!
I got a chance to see a screening of this movie and I was surprised on how good it was. Now I love Frank Oz. I love most of his movies such as Little Shop of Horrors and his work with the Muppets and Star Wars, What About Bob, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and Dark Crystal. I however did not enjoy In and Out, and Bowfinger, or the Stepford Wives remake. BUT, I think Oz has made a hit. This movie is flat out hilarious. It is a Dark british comedy about a funeral. I didn't know Frank had it in him to make a gross out (American Pie-ish) type of comedy. Well he has and he has accomplished. So the synopsis of the story is this family's father has died and he was a great man. Well come to find out he was secretly gay and having a love affair with a man midget who wants his cut of the will. And this is the craziest funeral I have ever been too. This funeral has naked people who take pills which consist of Special K and acid, guys pcking up chicks at funerals and yes, lots of poop. I recommend this movie if you enjoy dark comedies. It is very funny and I look forward to Frank Oz making more of these types of movies. If you use this call me... Gumbercules-9000
