A treat to see these great comedy actors in their twilight years.
19 November 2003 | by ben-trovatoSee all my reviews

I can't remember seeing the TV series of the same name, but this film shows off the immense talents of Bill, Raymond and Roy superbly. The idea of a mix up with coffins is not exactly new, the plot has few surprises, but it's the sublime acting which carries the film, which follows the style of that era, mixing the trends of the younger generation with staid old timers. I enjoyed it alot.
