One-joke movie.
7 August 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

If you've read the plot summary, you know the joke. How many times can this be repeated in different situations while remaining funny? ...Well probably fewer times than this movie attempts to get away with. To be charitable I suppose there's some slight comparison with a movie like "Kind Hearts and Coronets", where a one-joke scenario is repeated many times. But unfortunately "The Man Who Liked Funerals" has neither the range of amusing characters nor the talented actors to carry off a really sustained comedy. In the end it's a mediocre but occasionally successful small-scale comedy.
