You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
Aaron's father's funeral is today at the family home, and everything goes wrong: the funeral home delivers the wrong body, his cousin accidentally drugs her fiancé, and Aaron's successful younger brother, Ryan, flies in from New York, broke but arrogant. To top it all off, a mysterious stranger wants a word with Aaron.
Easily one of the most pointless remakes in recent movie history. They did a brilliant job of replicating it perfectly... minus the jokes.
*sigh* What a waste of money, talent and time.
A good cast it may be but the film can't handle the weight of them all and it struggles to do anything more than bumble aimlessly between them. And even forgets to be funny in the process.
Despite a solid cast, the film never really manages to kick into the comedy which makes the entire affair rather annoying and - at times - preachy.
The original DEATH AT A FUNERAL is, in my opinion, genuinely one of the greatest comedies of the past 20 years. So, I was wary about watching this remake. Sadly, upon watching, all my fears were proven correct.
See, what makes the original such an instant comedy classic is how utterly straight-faced it's all played. As this family funeral goes increasingly wrong in ever more ridiculous ways, everyone plays their characters as completely morose and mortified, which makes it all even funnier. It's a slice of pure, squirming uncomfortable British humor. So, this take just feels so tonally off-key. Most of the actors are playing shtick, firing out rapid-fire quips and one-liners. And because everyone is playing so loud and…
Get this, this movie is a remake made only three years later with the exact same shots, mostly the same script and Peter Dinklage once again in the role and I just gotta say what a lazy, pointless, repeat of a remake.
Not quite as good as the original, but it shares most of the best lines from it. A fairly good adaptation.
That was seriously not funny.
My father was an exceptional man.......
Demasiados personajes y demasiadas subtramas absurdas, inútiles y nada graciosas, exceptuando algún chistecillo.
Lo mejor de todo, y prácticamente lo único bueno, la trama principal, que me hizo reír de lo lindo durante varios minutos seguidos. Pero más allá de eso...
I don't really remember anything about this movie except that it was funny.
This is a bad movie. Yet, through all this terrible comedy, Chris Rock actually managed to deliver a good performance. At least the movie had that going for it. I haven't seen the original yet.
There was a great ensemble cast, but it didn't come together that well. It seems really soon to do a remake after just 3 years. It had a few laughs, but it wasn't anything very memorable.
Ξεκίνησα να τη βλέπω σ'ένα ισπανικό κτελ καθ'οδόν προς Βαλένθια, νομίζοντας πως πρόκειται για την αυθεντική βρετανική εκδοχή και λίγο duuuh. (Είχε καλές στιγμές, ωστόσο, άρα ήταν φαν για την περίσταση.)
I admit I have a soft spot for this one, and it may just be because of the cast... which is KILLER!!
Why does this movie even exist? On the list of completely unnecessary remakes, Death at a Funeral is one of the more inexplicable. Director Frank Oz released his thoroughly delightful British comedy in 2007, and although it was not a huge hit, it became something of a cult discovery. For whatever reason, Hollywood decided that we needed an American version and so we were given this forced and shrill remake that sucked out all of the humor, life and fun. In this transplant operation, the patient has died.
The story and events are essentially identical: we spend the day at the estate of a goofy family as they are engaged in the funeral of the clan patriarch. Chris Rock is…
Complete list. :-(
These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
