Product Description

Chris Rock, Luke Wilson, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, James Marsden, Zoe Saldana, Danny Glover and Peter Dinklage star in a hilarious comedy that puts the “fun” in “funeral”! When the patriarch of a dysfunctional family dies, his funeral turns into family circus. Misplaced bodies, blackmail, indecent exposure and a corpse that won’t stay in the box get the party started, but when old family skeletons start tumbling out of the closet, all Hell breaks loose.

From Amazon.co.uk

Less than three years after the 2007 Brit-com Death at a Funeral hit cinemas, this remake offered a nearly scene-for-scene variation on the original. Once again a family has gathered for the dignified memorial service for a patriarch: older son (Chris Rock) has prepared a eulogy; younger son (Martin Lawrence) has flown in on his celebrity as a bestselling author; favorite niece (Zoe Saldana) has brought her fiancé (James Marsden, flipping out), unaware that he has accidentally ingested a hallucinogen manufactured by her pharmaceutically minded brother (Columbus Short, from Cadillac Records). You know, the usual fare for a funeral. The wild card is a stranger (Peter Dinklage, the only member of the cast to repeat his role from the 2007 film) who has something urgent to impart to the two sons. There's nothing terribly elevated about the slapstick, and one particular scatological sequence tests the boundaries of the bearable (30 Rock's Tracy Morgan, in his usual unbounded form, takes the brunt of this scene). The unexpected director is Neil LaBute, who shows off his sense of comic timing and keeps the whole apparatus moving along briskly. In addition to the relatively subdued lead turns by Rock and Lawrence, the big cast includes Danny Glover, Regina Hall, Luke Wilson, and Loretta Devine. It is almost irrelevant to debate whether this version improves or deflates the original; both hit their marks, deliver the broad yuks, and leave behind a mostly mechanical feel. But the job is accomplished--now rest in peace. --Robert Horton

I saw this in the cinema after watching the English version days before and this is a word for wor exact copy almost, just with a few mroe racial stereotypes. Personally I prefered the english one, I felt the characters seemed for real and for me this made the plot mroe real. Death at a funeral (American) isn;t really a bad film but I think alot more could have been done with thier higher budget over the English film. All in all I recomend buying the english version.

I didn't hold out much hope for Death at a Funeral when I first started watching. I was afraid of it becoming another one of those films that relied too heavily on racial jokes and dialogue that consisted of "brother" and Chris Rock's screechy voice. However, I was pleasantly surprised. This film turned out to have as much heart and soul as the original, with plenty of new content to seem fresh. Marsden, who I had lost faith in since watching The Box, put in a career best in this film, and started the ball rolling for a great comedy.

Martin Lawrence, as per recent performances, seems to have become more and more boring, and as such, I felt wasn't a valid character for this film. Tracey Morgan seems to be the up and coming black comedian of late, and he added a great touch to the film. Personally, I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys their comedies - it doesn't take itself seriously at all, and encourages the viewers to sit back and have a laugh at life's little jokes.

Not what I expected. I have the original English version which is much funnier and has a certain sophisticated humour. For some reason I feel like this version was rushed through. The whole cast tried their best but the script was not meant for the American audience.

With a lead pairing of Chris Rock & Martin Lawrence i was expecting Death at a Funeral to be hilarious & funny. Not to mention the great support cast looking very good too, with the likes of Keith David, Danny Glover, Luke Wilson, James Marsden, Tracy Morgan & the sexy Zoe Saldana. Yet it just ended up being slightly funny in places and overall disappointing IMO. Chris Rock was great playing it as deadpan as he could, but there was just nobody playing off him to make the laughs count. Martin Lawrence was very reserved & underused compared to his usual comedy roles, while Tracy Morgan, after seeing him crash & burn in Cop Out alongside Bruce Willis, i wanted this to be a chance to redeem himself, but yet again just proved more to me the fact that he just isn't that funny without Danny Glover's feces on him, no matter how much he rambles on & screws his face up.

The story itself simply revolves around a funeral service of Chris Rocks & Martin Lawrence's father, set at the home for a coming together of the family to grieve. It is is quite funny in places, with Peter Dinklage blackmailing Rock & Lawrence, although for the majority of the film it feels like it relies on James Marsden playing high, having been given what was thought to be a Valium, which turned out to be Acid. He plays the part superbly, but that gets old, quite quickly, unless your easily amused. I am really disappointed overall with this film & i expected so much more from the premise & cast. One to miss unless your a fan of Chris Rock. Worth a watch.

Format: DVD
Yes, the humor at times was sophomoric. I have not seen the original version, so I can't compare the two. The movie has little in the way of plot, just people at a funeral addressing odd issues as they arise. Chris Rock places the "straight man" and is our voice of reason.

Martin Lawrence, plays his brother, who is a published author. He pretends to have a lot of money, but is broke. He spends his time at the funeral attempting to pick up the hot 18 year old neighbor girl. He asks her to NYC and says, "I got all kinds of snacks. Like Sugar Daddies?" Chris' mother laments about not having any grandchildren in front of Chris' spouse who wants sex every day. During the funeral she says, "We got 5 minutes, I'm not wearing any panties."

Danny Glover plays the curmudgeon uncle in a wheel chair. In one scene he proclaims, " I know a dead man when I see one. I live in a retirement home." The cousin has a white male boyfriend who is high, but not his fault. She tells her dad he is on Valium. Dad replies, "Your mother was on Valium for 30 years and she never knocked over a coffin." Meanwhile, her ex-boyfriend is also at the funeral and is trying to rekindle their romance. He laments, "I've only been sleeping 8 hours at a night. I am at my wit's end."

If you enjoy that type of humor, plus a little slap stick, you will enjoy this somewhat low-brow production as much as I did.

This is a completely unnecessary remake of a decent film that manages to be less funny than the original and makes for a dull, boring watch. I would recommend watching the original english film it's much better and give this dead effort a wide berth

I watched the original of Death at a Funeral its an English film which i found extremely funny, so when they made the remake with a prodominatley black cast, with Chris Rock & Martin Lawrence, i thought i could not go wrong. I was so wrong, this version seem highly cheezy and although it is the same script it does not work like the original. I ended thinking if it aint broke don't remake it to an inferior standard. The original is not very old so there was no need to remake it. Anyone who found this film good should watch the original for a funnier experience. Remake acting was Cheezy.
