Eulogy is dead on arrival.
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.
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.
Romano's caveman-ish line readings are perfectly pitched.
The terrific ensemble cast finds the right deadpan tone to deliver the dysfunction.
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.
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.
Any movie with Ray Romano in it that doesn't make one wish one has a gun to bring down the really big game is doing something right.
O ótimo elenco é terrivelmente desperdiçado por um roteiro absurdamente ruim recheado de piadas pavorosas e uma trama sem o menor foco ou originalidade.
The dysfunctional family that stays together... prays on each other. But that doesn't mean they can't be funny.
with its half-affecting, half-crass characters and half-funny, half-strained jokes, Eulogy is the very definition of hit and miss
Eulogy is about one half of a really good movie.
A dysfunctional family gathers for the patriarch's funeral.
With the characters' convoluted plotlines, even a trite voice over and an awkward framing narrative can't save this film. By the time I figured out who wanted what, who was related in to whom, and what the histories of all of these relationships were, I realized I didn't care about this people and they didn't care about each other.
I liked Zooey Deschanel's performance; she seemed at home in the awkwardness, realizing that understatement is key to this kind of comedy. Ray Romano's goofy mustache makes it impossible to take him seriously even in his more dramatic scenes.
Overall, this dramedy isn't a waste of time, but it's close.
Eulogy is one bizarre comedy that brings a lot of laughs. When the patriarch of a dysfunctional family passes on, his family gets together in the same house the funeral and all hell breaks loose. With Eulogy you have a wonderful cast that are all funny in their own way. Eulogy is one of the most original comedies to come along in a while. Eulogy has a terrific cast of well known actors such as Hank Azaria (The Simpsons) and Ray Romano (Everybody loves Raymond) Eulogy takes a sad event and makes it funny. Very funny in fact. This is actually one wacked out comedy film, and I enjoyed every minute of it. The cast did a great job and the story was just so much fun, a dysfunctional family are forced to be together to bury their father and grandfather. What could go wrong? well, everything. it's such a hilarious ride that you can't get bored. At times the film is uneven, but considering the cast involved, Eulogy is a terrific comedy that has more highs than lows. The jokes are great and theres plenty of good scenes. One things for sure, the family in the film have a strange way of being bereaved. I really enjoyed the film because it was a different type of comedy, and one that was very refreshing. Every cast member brought something great on screen, and the laughs kept coming one after another. If you haven't seen this comedy, you should. This film is very good and is much better than most mainstream comedies out there.
Totally cute. Kind of weird when Zooey, known for her quirky roles, was the normal one in this. I thought it was funny and dark. Very offbeat but loveable.
About 3 ok laughs but overall a complete miss.
