2010. 89 min.

With Chris Rock, Martin Law­­rence, Zoe Saldana.

Director: Neil LaBute.


Rating: 3/5

ARON (Rock) is a tax accountant and aspiring author who’s preparing his father’s funeral amid chaos and distractions from his eccentric family.

His younger brother (Lawrence), a novelist, arrives from New York but doesn’t lift a finger to help.

His wife is interested only in moving out of her mother-in-law’s house and starting a family.

His cousin’s (Saldana) nervous boyfriend (James Marsden) accidentally downs a hallucinogen, and an uninvited guest blackmails the brothers with an explosive family secret.

This remake of a 2007 British movie features a starstudded cast and will have you in stitches from beginning to end.

Marsden steals the show as the man who loses his mind for a few hours and causes mayhem.

The plot has a few holes but is fun and it helps that the actors are so watchable.

Bonus: commentary, featurette, deleted and extended scenes.
