I can see that on the forum lot of people complain and hate it becauseit's a remake from not so old movie and complete same storyline. Yeahit's the same story but boosted with many more enjoyable laughs. I meanin the original in the first 10 minutes I couldn't tell weather I'mwatching a comedy or a tragedy. Still for those who haven't watched theoriginal I'll just warn that there are many scenes where you gonnalaugh even if you're not supposed to, but after all it's a black humor.The all star cast did a great job bringing a new life to this movie. Iwish all the remakes were done like this one. So if you want 90 minutesof laughing out loud this is definitely your movie of choice.Have fun!User: Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)

But those incidents are only minor compared to theinformation that Aaron and Ryan get from Frank (Peter Dinklage) themysterious dwarf who is attending the funeral and nobody seems to know.
(My Comment) This movie had it all as to jokes crossing the line. Ithad a body falling out of the coffin, it had nude scenes and people ondrugs, it had feces on people, and it had sibling-rivalry, and a wifewho wants to get pregnant, all of this happening during the funeral.However, all this said, it is one of the funniest comedies I have seenin years. You will laugh out loud from beginning to end. There are somescenes that I almost busted a gut laughing so hard. This is slapstickcomedy at its best, and the scene with Danny Glover is the funniest.After laughing so hard, I was actually tired leaving the movie. Themovie may not be PC, but it is only a movie.
