With minutes to spare....
Last one! Get excited!!
Death at a Funeral
I was very skeptical when I first heard someone was remaking this movie. As a big fan of Mr. Oz's original film, I wasn't sure how it would survive being moved to a different country, a different culture.
I was very pleasantly surprised, amazed, honestly, at how seamlessly it was adapted to the setting of an African-American family.
That they were able to keep Peter Dinklage in the cast was perfect, as was the casting of Chris Rock. In my opinion, James Marsden nearly steals the show, but truly all of the casting is just right-on.
I'd really like to write something intelligent here about how we're all more alike than we are different, but that the differences are what make life so interesting and fun and difficult, but it's nearly midnight and frankly I'm exhausted...
Suffice it to say, I think this movie is excellent. It stands on its own, but it pairs perfectly with its predecessor, despite the ocean between them.
Such a clever, funny story that still remains meaningful and touching. I highly recommend you check it out.
MERE'S OFFICIAL RATING: 4 out of 5 stars
