I just saw Lots with a View as a surprise advance premiere (or: sneak preview) and it was quite funny. Yeah, it was actually a very good movie. I just read another user comment on it that it's hard to deal with the subject of Death in a comedy movie. It indeed is. And I'm still battling with myself over the question if they did a good job.
On one had, it was funny. On the other hand: it comes as a slap in the face for everybody who has (just) lost a loved one. Willie's talk about his mother broke me; a dying wife or grandma may break you. And would Dr. Spock die, no real Star Trek fan would ever be able to watch this movie.
For everybody else: you'll have an exquisite laugh.
