Storyline

Aaron's father's funeral is today at the family home, and everything goes wrong: the funeral home delivers the wrong body; a cousin gives her fiancé a Valium from her brother's apartment, not knowing her brother is dealing drugs - it's LSD and the fiancé arrives at the funeral wildly stoned; Aaron's younger brother, Ryan, a successful writer, flies in from New York broke but arrogant; one uncle is angry over his daughter's choice of boyfriends, and the other is cranky and coarse. Add an ovulating wife, a jealous ex-boyfriend, and a short stranger who wants a word with Aaron - what could he want? Would another death solve Aaron's problems? And what about the eulogy?

I was quite entertained by this version of Death at a Funeral
3 May 2010 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This is another picture I watched with my movie theatre working friend. It's a remake of a Frank Oz-helmed film for Britain that came out just three years ago. This version was directed by Neil LaBute with a cast that included Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Luke Wilson, Zoe Saldana, James Marsden, Peter Dinklage (the only one to reprise his role from the previous version), and Danny Glover. Many of the people I just mentioned provided many good laughs, especially Marsden as a drugged wanderer, though there were also some-pardon the pun-dead spots as well. Still, this was quite an entertaining comedy to me that didn't become too unbelievable in the way things happened. Since I hadn't seen Oz' version, however, I can't compare them yet. So on that note, that's a recommendation for Death at a Funeral.
