Death at a Funeral (2010)
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 successful writer, should have drawn that assignment. Besides coping with his father's death Aaron also has to deal with the pressures of his wife wanting a child as well as his mother (Loretta Devine) wanting a grandchild. He also has to deal with paying for the funeral on his own, since his famous brother is broke.
The funeral takes place in his father's home and Aaron tries to put on an appropriate expression on his face to welcome his relatives but preserving a civil atmosphere will be a hard thing to do, especially, when from the very start, the undertaker makes a horrifying mistake.
But those incidents are only minor compared to the information that Aaron and Ryan get from Frank (Peter Dinklage) the mysterious dwarf who is attending the funeral that nobody seems to know.
Overall this is a very funny movie to watch if you like slapstick comedy and James Marsden does an excellent job with his role.
