Storyline

After her Grandfather goes on vacation Tesia (Lynn-Holly Johnson) discovers that the number of bodies buried does not match the number of corpses her Grandfather registered with the state. While being romanced by an older cowboy Don (Tom Pardew) and a young best friend Albert (David Michael O'Neill), she struggles to deal with the chaos that ensues in this funny mad ball romance comedy, with more throw away lines than a forties talkie.

Quotes

Mrs. Shlumsky: Ah! May I help you?
Mr. Coats: Oh my yes, indeed, I would hope so, yes. Um, my name is Miles Coats and - this is my day off, you see - and I was just doing a little price comparison.
Mrs. Shlumsky: Uh-huh.
Mr. Coats: Now, I'm not looking for anything fancy.
Mrs. Shlumsky: I understand. We here at the Papadapacropolis Funeral Home take the worry out of the unfortunate arrangements. We're here to serve you.
Mr. Coats: That's very nice. Do you have a crematorium?
Mrs. Shlumsky: Certainly!

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.
