Normally I would complain about a remake being made so soon after the original but this new version of “Death At A Funeral” is fresh and funny. The original film came out about two years ago and was a hilarious British comedy. This one goes with a mostly black cast who bring a different tone to the movie making a lot of the gags funny in a new way.
Chris Rock takes the lead role. The supporting cast includes Martin Lawrence, Danny Glover, Zoe Saldana, Tracy Morgan, Luke Wilson, James Marsden, and Peter Dinklage who was in the original and is playing the exact same character.
I will say that all the actors and actress’ have more energy then the original but that’s because most British comedies, that I have seen anyway, are pretty low key. Monty Python is not included.
