Movie Info

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. In spite of the warning, Andy and Charlie do whatever it takes to get inside. They crack it open to find just what they had hoped for--fireworks, cigarettes, even dirty magazines. The most alluring of all the contraband, however, is the piece they didn't expect: gleaming back at them is a small, silver, .38-caliber revolver enticing the boys to get in over their heads.

Critic Reviews for Funeral Kings

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

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.

Alex Maizus's performance actually blew me away.

Aug 21, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Funeral Kings

It's a funny adolescent film. The boys in the movie are really good in this. The two boys, Charlie and Andy take the job as altar boys at their school so they can get out class with every funeral. Then they skip the rest of the day and get into a lot of trouble. It was a fun film.
