Death becomes 'Death at a Funeral,' according to most major critics, who enjoyed the ribald slapstick and over-the-top behavior of its all-star cast, which includes Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Luke Wilson, Danny Glover, Regina Hall, James Marsden, Tracy Morgan and Zoe Saldana.

It's a remake of the 2007 Brit film of the same name -- also written by the same Dean Craig -- but instead of a depiction of a high class British funeral, we have here an African-American funeral in Pasadena, Calif. Dad has died and the family comes together to pay their last respects. But soon there's a series of revelations, family bickering, threats, blackmail, a drug freakout and a lost corpse to keep things lively. Peter Dinklage reprises his role from the original, which was directed by Frank Oz..

Neil LaBute is the director here and Rock produces.
