This sort of sub- trawl might work on stage but never on the big screen, where all the deficiencies of the form are thrown into sharp relief. During the ensuing chaos, Simon is told why he is acting as he is, so he panics and locks himself in the bathroom. That's high praise for Death but no more than it deserves. The humor manages to be simultaneously sophisticated, supremely silly and very dark. From the start, nothing goes right.

Their hopes for doing so are dashed when Martha, hoping to calm Simon's nerves, gives him what she believes is but is actually a manufactured by her brother Troy , a pharmacy student. Peter manages to free himself, but falls and hits his head on a glass coffee table.
