Buries more characters and plot lines than it has screen time for, and fails to put to rest many of the questions it raises.

Eulogy is about one half of a really good movie.

Little more than a string of jokes stuffed into a contrived storyline, but a lot of the jokes are funny, so maybe it all balances out.

An unfunny black comedy populated by obnoxious characters.

Cinema em Cena

O ˇtimo elenco Ú terrivelmente desperdišado por um roteiro absurdamente ruim recheado de piadas pavorosas e uma trama sem o menor foco ou originalidade.

If Eulogy were a sitcom pilot, it would be dead on arrival.

The sort of mordant ensemble comedy that Robert Altman pulled off with A Wedding appears to have been a prototype for this flat, funereal farce.

Romano's caveman-ish line readings are perfectly pitched.

That Eulogy has any laughs is largely a testament to the understated Romano -- he and Deschanel are the only ones in the cast who aren't straining to be funny.

When a filmmaker is savvy enough to hire Torn to play an eccentric codger, then has him do little more than play dead in a casket, he has a lot of learning to do.

Do you ever long to recapture that childhood feeling of being trapped in a car with your family three hours after the air conditioner's conked out on a sweltering summer day?

with its half-affecting, half-crass characters and half-funny, half-strained jokes, Eulogy is the very definition of hit and miss

Eulogy confuses mean-spiritedness for signs of intelligent life.

All this off-the-wall detachment from reality might be OK if the characters didn't also feel detached from one another.

Clancy's script is better than his direction, with several high points in both dialogue and scene construction. The material is darkly funny but not so dark as to be vicious.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Clancy's mild farce is nowhere near as bracingly mean-spirited as he apparently thinks, and the occasional amusing one-liner can't compensate for the broad caricatures and awkwardly structured story.

What Clancy needs to remember if he is ever given another shot at a feature is that what might work on TV often shrinks on the big screen.
