If the title of this comedy sounds familiar, it originally was done in England several years ago. In this slightly less sharp Americanization, director Neil LaBute ("Nurse Betty") retains many of the original elements - including co-star Peter Dinklage - while servicing Chris Rock (also one of the film's producers) and Martin Lawrence.
They play brothers who try to keep their relatives in line, and settle their own differences, while arranging the service for their late father. Tracy Morgan, Danny Glover, Zoe Saldana, Luke Wilson and James Marsden are among the other attendees. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Rock and LaBute; deleted scenes; outtakes. *** (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
