Just to give you an idea of how astonishingly awful this film is, when I finished viewing it I considered the British original to be a comic masterpiece... and I hated the original! There is nothing even mildly amusing about this scatological sacrilege; one committed against even the conceit of originality. Avoid at all costs!

Actually surprised at how much like the original it managed to channel - most of the jokes were kept intact, as was the story, and while James Marden is no Alan Tudyk, it was still a worthy comedy that has the spirit of the original wit a different cast.

With all of the talented and funny actors this remake had, there should've been enough laughs to match the 2007 original, but there wasn't. And while there some funny moments, only a few of them had me laughing hard. Most of the funny moments in this movie came from James Marsden and Peter Dinklage. Altogether, this movie was average, I wouldn't really recommend this (although, if you haven't already, check out the original), but I wouldn't warn people to not see this.

Death at a Funeral review

"Death is everywhere." Had a few laughable scenes such as Oscar in the rest room, Aaron discovering his dad's secret and the Sponge-Bob remark. Was surprisingly impressed with the screenplay with lines from Derek "You only live once." Ryan "Don't you try laughing, enjoying life." Elaine "This is my life." and Aaron "But hey, life is complicated. We do our best." On the negative side, aside from the toilet/childish humor and cheesy moments, the character of Norman was plain irritating from the beginning. Unfortunately, some characters felt cartoonish and just plain idiotic. Too bad the film head popular skilled artists. Soundtrack and direction was fair. Death at a Funeral is worth viewing because of some funny scenes and importance of life.

Not bad!

This film is a remake of a British film with the same name. And, if you liked the British Film, then you will like this one, because it is practically a scene for scene remake. The story, and for the most part, the script is the same. Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan, Martin Lawrence, make a great comedy team and Danny Glover steals the movie as the cantankerous uncle while Peter Dinklage reprises his role from the original as "mysterious stranger."

Synopsis: Aaron (Chris Rock) is a well-mannered and hard working young man, married to Michelle (Regina Hall). When his father dies, it is up to Aaron, the oldest son, to organize the funeral and give the eulogy although some people, such as Aaron's uncle Russell (Danny Glover), think Aaron's younger brother, Ryan (Martin Lawrence), who is a succes...
