Family-Faith Film Review: Death at Funeral

Family-Faith Film Review: Death at Funeral
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting

Death at a Funeral—Ensemble farce relating the various outlandish mishaps that befall two estranged brothers (Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence) and their relatives and friends (notably James Marsden, Tracy Morgan and Danny Glover) as they gather to bury the family patriarch, including the played-for-laughs revelation of the deceased’s concealed relationship with a mysterious stranger (Peter Dinklage). Director Neil LaBute’s Americanization of Frank Oz’s 2007 British comedy of the same title mostly seeks laughs in the bed- and bathroom, with predictably woeful results. Frivolous treatment of adulterous homosexuality, rear and partial nudity, drug theme, graphic scatological humor, sexual jokes and references, a half-dozen uses of profanity, frequent rough and crude language.  O — morally offensive. (R) 2010
