Summary: I'm always up for a little dysfunction, and this film delivered. Finding out awkward family secrets is bad enough, but to learn of them during said family member's funeral is infinitely worse.
Excerpt: I’d recommend this film for those who like their comedy a bit on the black side. This is the kind of humor the Brits do so well - intelligent, expertly delivered dialog and action that can make even the most unlikely situations hilarious.
Summary: Man. This is just not a good movie. There are a few amusing parts (thank you, Alan Tudyk), but the main conflict of the movie is very immoral, the central characters are grating, and the conclusion is extremely smaltzy.
Summary: Come on! Got to give it to the Brits. A touch of Benny Hill humor,a disfunctional family (that most of us have) and some silly lines and moments, this one is surely a hilarious film. Even Oprah found this one to be a "delicious slapstick comedy that will have you dying with laughter!
Summary: Death is usually depressing. Put Chris Rock in the mix and death doesn't seem so bad anymore. Great cast, great laughs, who wouldn't want to see it?

Summary: There are good bits and there are bad bits, but this not-too-bad movie (that's been made extremely soon after the original) has good laughs and likeable characters to make this remake a success in its own right.
