Death for the remakeBy Fiona D from Scotland , 06 Jun 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]Please please please rent the original British version of this film. This version loses all the quirky eccentricities of the British that made the original such a good film. The slapstick over-the-top nature of this American remake spoils it all and makes it a film mainly about toilet humour.
Oh and it has Chris Rock pretty much playing himself for the 100th time.

Wouldnt waste my timeBy a customer , 03 May 2013Switched off after about 25 minutes. Not worth giving it anymore time than that. Should have been good given the cast.
Not as funny as I rememberBy PieRulesForever (2 reviews) , 16 Mar 2013I saw this when it came out at the cinema. I thought it was hilarious and it was on my wish list for a long time. It was good, granted, but just not as good as I remember. Worth a watch, anyhow.
Boring filmBy a customer , 23 Feb 2013This is very disappointing considering the people in it. I found it very silly and boring. It is not worth watching, sorry.
Funeral made aliveBy calipsa (28 reviews) , 23 Jan 2013Funny funny film. So entertaining. I have not laughed out loud in ages. Well worth watching for some silly humor of the stupid kind.
They tried but failedBy a customer , 22 Jan 2013This version is to be honest very disappointing, they tried to up the British version, but they failed. The acting was poor in comparison with all the jokes being told too quick without effort instead they simply chucked in loads of famous faces and unfunny additions. You have to watch the original to see how the story is successfully told.
