Funnymen Martin Lawrence (Big Momma’s House, Bad Boys I & II), Tracy Morgan (30 Rock, Cop Out) and Chris Rock (Grown Ups, Madagascar) lead an all-star cast in this uproarious tale of a family mourning the loss of their patriarch over the course of one unexpectedly hilarious day.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Neil LaBute (Nurse Betty, Lakeview Terrace) and co-starring Zoë Saldaña (Avatar, Star Trek), Loretta Devine (Crash), Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon 1-4), Regina Hall (First Sunday), James Marsden (Enchanted), Columbus Short (Stomp the Yard) and Luke Wilson (Old School), Death At A Funeral is a humourously acted, high-energy riot.
Blu-ray and DVD bonus features include commentary with director Neil LaBute and co-producer/star Chris Rock, deleted scenes and the behind-the-scenes featurettes Family Album, Death for Real and Death at a Funeral: Last Rites, Dark Secrets, which offer a revealing look at the making of this modern day screwball comedy.

When the patriarch of a dysfunctional family dies, his funeral turns into a family circus. Misplaced bodies, blackmail, indecent exposure and a corpse that won’t stay in the box get the party started, but when old family skeletons start tumbling out of the closet, all hell breaks loose.
Death At A Funeral was written by Dean Craig (upcoming Down and Dirty Pictures, Caffeine) and produced by Sidney Kimmel (Adventureland, Lars and the Real Girl), William Horberg (Milk, The Kite Runner), Chris Rock, Share Stallings and Laurence Malkin.
Death At A Funeral has a running time of 92 minutes and is rated 15.
