Storyline

Oliver is destined for an uneventful life until the day he and his brother Jackie breeze into town to attend the funeral of their estranged father. To everyone's bewilderment, Oliver inherits his father's estate-a funeral home. Oliver learns from the handyman Henry that the home is on the verge of bankruptcy. That night, his life gets increasingly complicated when he takes a drunken drive with the bewitching mortician Roberta and collides with a hiker. Roberta cleverly disguises the fatality as an accident, providing Oliver with his first paying customer and launching the duo on a merciless killing spree that evolves from accidental to intentional. As they scramble to stay out of jail and keep the funeral home in business, the body count rises steeply and their victims expire in increasingly bizarre and brutal "accidents". Trying to remain one step ahead of the local law (Roberta's father, Chief of Police Knickle, and her boyfriend, Constable Richmond), Oliver is torn between the ... Written by Anonymous

Fargo meets Trouble With Harry
11 September 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

To me this movie felt like a combination Fargo and The Trouble With Harry. It's witty, hilarious unpredictable black comedy with one specific scene (you'll know which one when you see it) which got one of the loudest reactions I've ever heard in a theatre. It takes place in Nova Scotia (although I noticed the Canadian elements weren't heavily emphasized, perhaps so it might pass as the US for American distribution?) and it definitely has a small town feel. A likable, harmless and rather bumbling son comes to a small town to inherit his father's funeral home. He tries to run it, then he tries to sell it, fails to do either and during all this all the "fun" takes place. The movie has the courage to go for the comedic jugular (like Fargo ex: the wood- chipper scene) which carries it past so many of the comedies out there.
