Consensus: It's amusing and it assembles a talented cast, but Neil LaBute's surprisingly faithful remake of the 2007 Frank Oz dramedy ultimately falls short of the original.

Although it still only just gets away with sundry homophobic and size-ist gags, there's a tad more zing than the original, though if you caught that already, be warned: this is a scene-for-scene retread.

Rock's interventions can't compensate for excessive fealty to dumb gags.

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.

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

Think of Death at a Funeral as a comic quickie. As it presses buttons, a few laughs come out, but that's all there is to it.

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.

Neil LaBute is fast becoming a name to avoid. This isn't just a case of being a bad film compared to the original, it's just a bad film. The script is… More
