Death at a Funeral


deathatafuneralAs Aaron Barnes (Chris Rock) is preparing for the funeral of his father, it is gearing up to be a disaster.Ā Only three years after Frank Ozā€™s hilarious British comedy comes the remake, directed by Neil LaBute whoā€™d already made a mess out of theĀ Wicker ManĀ remake. As it is very close to the original (except for the African-American setting), itā€™s interesting to compare films and see how well Oz staged gags ā€“ and where LaBute utterly fails. Still, not without amusing momentsā€¦ although you need a better actor than Rock to carry the straight-man part.

2010-U.S. 92 min. Color. Widescreen.Ā Directed byĀ Neil LaBute.Ā Cast:Ā Chris Rock (Aaron Barnes), Martin Lawrence (Ryan Barnes), Tracy Morgan (Norman), Danny Glover, ZoĆ« Saldana, James Marsdenā€¦ Loretta Devine, Peter Dinklage, Luke Wilson, Regina Hall, Kevin Hall.

Trivia:Ā Dinklage played the same character in the original.
