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.

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.

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

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

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?
