It hits on several intriguing ideas, but none are fully developed in what ends up being an aimless, scattered exercise.
| Original Score: 1/5
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.
| Original Score: 5.9/10
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.
| Original Score: B+
One of the funniest movies about selfish, vulgar, horny 14-year-olds in quite some time.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
A raggedy but refreshing yarn about the near-terminal condition known as male adolescence.
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
| Original Score: B
A surprisingly sweet story about a pair of Rhode Island Catholic schoolboys, played with knockabout charm by Alex Maizus and Dylan Hartigan.
| Original Score: 3/5
