What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Paul Boekkooi Daars is maar min snaaks aan dié klugtige begrafnis
Kirk Honeycutt Funeral is dead on its feet
Pete Hammond The remake doesn’t trump the original. Heck, it doesn’t even match it.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Although it's almost a scene-by-scene remake of a 2007 British movie with the same title, it's funnier than the original.
Adam Nayman Death at a Funeral 2.0 doesn’t improve on its source material: It’s a scene-for-scene, gag-for-gag Xerox
C. Fuchs Even if I had never seen the original, I doubt I would have found much of the offering as funny, let alone hilarious.
Tomatometer It's amusing and it assembles a talented cast, but Neil LaBute's surprisingly faithful remake of the 2007 Frank Oz dramedy ultimately falls short of the original.
