THE MAN WHO LIKED FUNERALS is a 1950s British comedy in which a man trying to raise money for a youth club hatches a plot to blackmail bereaved relatives with fake stories about the deceased.

Sex

There are mild sex references in which characters refer to a published essay with the phrase, 'sex and how to get it'. The essay also includes the lines, 'cut yourself a slice of sex, it's nearly free' and 'the girl who never says yes now can't say no'.

Threat

There is mild threat in a scene in which criminal characters fire their guns and another character holds up a knife in a threatening manner.

There is infrequent use of very mild bad language (eg 'damn').
