Death at a Funeral
Death at a Funeral – Movie Review
A funeral ceremony turns into a debacle of exposed family secrets and misplaced bodies.
Death At A Funeral is an American remake of a very good British film that was very funny and very sweet and very subtle on a whole bunch of different levels. This is none of the above. Yeah, it stars some famous people. It’s got Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Peter Dinklage(the only holdover from the original and playing the same part), James Marsden and Tracy Morgan. I must tell you, I do not understand the appeal of Tracy Morgan. I have seen him in three movies and I don’t get it. The great Danny Glover is in this and I am sure he will take it off his resume. Zoe Saldana. By the way, am I the only one who thinks she looks exactly like Jada Pinkett Smith but a younger version? Basically, the story is that Chris Rock is having the worst day of his life, his father has died, his father wanted the funeral at home. The casket has been delivered, it is the wrong guy, ha ha ha, are you laughing yet? And it just goes downhill from there. The only person who has any fun in this movie is James Marsden, who gets to be naked and act like he is on LSD and he looks like he is having a great time. The rest of the cast all look as unhappy to be in the movie as I was to be at it. Zero stars.
