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!

"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.

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 …
