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.

While it isn't a shot-for-shot replica, certainly no one can accuse Hollywood of dumbing things down here.

I like this new one mainly because of the cast.

It's not a great movie, but far exceeds expectation and remains very true to the original film but with a clever African-American slant (which may actually make it even funnier).

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.

It remains a mystery to me how a street-smart, wise-cracking comic of Chris Rock's pedigree failed to see the laughter limitations of this remake of Frank Oz's British film, which was equally uninspiring.

I like the cast.

Rick Groen

So much sameness, yet so fewer laughs.

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.
