A couple years back Frank Oz directed a charming little British farce which took place during a funeral. I thoroughly enjoyed Death at a Funeral and felt instant dread when I learned Hollywood wished to remake it.
From what I can gleem from the trailer, the remake seems to lack all the funny of the original, but has extra-large helpings of Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan. Really?? And, might I ask, is making tepid castrated Hollywood versions of foreign comedies really the best use of director Neil LaBute‘s time? God, somebody shoot me. You can find the trailer for the original after the jump.
