Tesia Papadapacropolis: Oh my, well this can't be right.
Albert: I hope it's not.
Tesia Papadapacropolis: Well it's not. I mean, we've been staring at documents for too long. We have that white line fever.
Albert: I don't think so, Tesia. Truck drivers get that stuff.
Tesia Papadapacropolis: Well, do you realise what this means?
Albert: Apparently your grandfather's been burying more dead bodies than he's been taking in.
Tesia Papadapacropolis: There's permits here for three hundred and fifty, and he's deep-sixed over a thousand? Albert, where do you suppose he came up with all the extra bodies?
Albert: Swap meet? Sorry...

How funny could a movies about a funeral home be?
26 August 2001 | by corleyk_2000See all my reviews

Well, a lot funnier than this one is, unfortunately. From the premise I expected better, but this is a very flawed film. The pacing is not consistent, and the humor doesn't quite hit the mark. And when they suddenly take off on the romance tangent (why is this obligatory in every 'wacky' comedy?) it slows down even more. With judicious use of the remote control this has some moments, but don't expect to be laughing heartily...a couple smiles and a few laughs are the best this has to offer. There are a few nice cameos of some minor stars, and I managed to enjoy it for that.
