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 ˇtimo elenco Ú terrivelmente desperdišado 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.

Eulogy is dead on arrival.

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

Neither ditzy enough as comedy nor realistic enough as human drama to live a long life.

Winger and Deschanel rise above the constant noise, but the script leaves everyone else sinking six feet under.

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.

[Has] a cast to die for and a bitter poignancy that imparts the sly and frequently mean-spirited wit with genuine feeling...

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

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.
| Original Score: 2/5

Eulogy is notable for a couple of gutsy performances in fantastically nasty roles.

The terrific ensemble cast finds the right deadpan tone to deliver the dysfunction.
