It's always a good day for a funeral at St. Mark's Middle School. Andy and Charlie, two altar servers, don't just get to miss class anytime a parishioner kicks the bucket, they cut out early and play hooky as soon as the service is over. Eventually their irreverent personalities will put them in situations that are too big for them to handle. When Bobby, a 16 year-old dropout and former altar boy, hides a padlocked trunk in Andy's bedroom, he explicitly tells Andy not to open it.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A surprisingly sweet story about a pair of Rhode Island Catholic schoolboys, played with knockabout charm by Alex Maizus and Dylan Hartigan.
That headlong hormonal rush toward what boys perceive as the benefits of adulthood is what the brothers McManus capture here with candor and occasional hilarity.
A raggedy but refreshing yarn about the near-terminal condition known as male adolescence.
Of all the coming-of-age films set among adolescents at Catholic schools, this is one of the most heartfelt and charming, not to mention one of the most realistically vulgar.
It hits on several intriguing ideas, but none are fully developed in what ends up being an aimless, scattered exercise.
The plot's head-fakes are a little bit frustrating, but 'Funeral Kings' compensates with moment-to-moment cleverness and a slew of wonderfully specific little details
Funeral Kings is confident and controlled and, with an unabashed vulgarity underscoring everything, about as pure a piece of movie memory as I can name.
