While it is intriguing that the Americanized remake to the British comedy Death at a Funeral (which came out way back in 2007) came so quickly, the best part is that Peter Dinklage plays the same role in both films: the spurned gay lover.
For the remake, that’s a stroke of genius.
I thoroughly enjoyed the original, but, then again, I enjoy British humor. Being a “foreign” film, though, the original didn’t quite make the splash that I think the remake will have. What do you think?
Here are the trailers to both films. It seems the 2010 film keeps the same spirit, while adding that touch of broad humor we American really dig.
What so you think about the remake?
