Death at a Funeral Reviews

What we end up with here is the most pointless remake since Gus Van Sant made his shot-for-shot remake of "Psycho" back in 1998.

Movie Metropolis

A funny film, but it's not one that I found myself growing passionate about as I watched.

If the film is so close to the original as to also be pretty much disposable once its over, at least it as well serves up a healthy amount of laughs during its very brief and brisk run time.

A little more tweaking for the actual actor's voices to come through, instead of trying to put them into pre-concieved places, may have worked better, but on the whole, it's still an excellent example of how the ensemble comedy should work.

What Culture

The only scene in which the audience noticeably reacted to the film's efforts to extract some belly laughs came in the depressingly derivative poo jokes.

...a perfectly watchable piece of work...

It's almost a checklist of things I don't like, but it won me over in its opening minutes and never let go.

Window to the Movies

The component that stayed mostly the same is the writing, which is bad news to me, since my main beef with the original movie was exactly that.

Cinema.com: Post-mortem grossout, bawdy bereavement, laugh-out-lewd feces fun and games, and a little gay dwarf tossing as a served up side order of midget mockery. Not a movie to die for."

This is London

The British film wasn't much better. But, beleive me, it was easier to watch than this loud mess.

Avoid at all costs.

June 7, 2010

LaBute and his cast seem to be revelling in the opportunity to indulge in the kind of lazy farce so beloved of unambitious British cinema.

Depends very heavily on the worryingly unfunny idea of accidentally consuming hallucinogenic drugs, though I have to admit there are a few crassly funny moments...

An undistinguished remake of a crude black comedy.

Overall, it's better than the original -- although that's not saying much.

Liverpool Echo

There's no change to the plot or the thinly sketchy characters. It's a thoroughly pointless exercise.

What this movie really has going for it is a great cast who manage to make some obvious comedy situations genuinely amusing.

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

This is a marginal improvement on the mangy 2007 British farce it's derived from, but it's still stuck with Dean Craig's irredeemably crass script, an anchor of unfunniness (and blatant homophobia) tied around its legs.

Full Review Source: Daily Telegraph | Original Score: 2/5

Graham Young
Birmingham Post

James Marsden probably thought he could do no wrong after Hairspray and Enchanted. But he's unconvincing as the plot's inadvertent drug-taker who hallucinates his way through the movie. Ain't he the lucky one!
