Hey there, movie fanatics, it’s me Slick Dungeon. I’m still working my way through my movie challenge and for this one it was to watch a movie that makes you laugh so hard you cry. After this one I only have four more to go for the year so I am getting there. I decided to watch Death at a Funeral from 2010 which is an American remake of the original Death at a Funeral from 2007.
Death at a Funeral starts with a somber look at a man in a casket who turns out to be the wrong body. From there, the farce continues and things become more and more outrageous. I don’t want to spoil too much here because it takes away from the comedy if I do but let’s just say things get absolutely ridiculous. And by the end if you haven’t laughed, there may be something wrong with you.
There are solid performances from Chris Rock, Marin Lawrence, Danny Glover, Kevin Hart, Zoe Saldana and a host of other recognizable names.
While it doesn’t necessarily make you laugh from start to finish, the funny parts are funny enough that yes, I did end up laughing so hard I cried. So fair warning, don’t choke on your popcorn with this one. If you haven’t seen it I definitely recommend it. If anyone has seen both the original and the 2010 version let me know which one you think is better. I would have watched the original first but it wasn’t on any of the streaming services I have and I didn’t want to pay for it when I could already see the remake.
