While it has its moments, Kingdom Come is marred by a script that's low on laughs and uneven in tone.

This story about relatives who set about annoying each other at a funeral has some heartfelt emotion, but it clashes spectacularly with unseemly gross-out humor.
A heavyset daughter who never talks but eats a lot is named Delightful, which is supposed to be funny. That pretty much sums up the movie's comic tone.
While Kingdom Come follows the formula for comic combustibility, it's even more inert than Bud, who at least comes to life for a brief fantasy sequence.
The structure and style are a staple of many traveling black stage shows ... What slays them in the second balcony, though, flattens on the screen.
A mediocre sitcom writ large.
Manages to be profound without being pompous.
...a well-intentioned yet wholly misguided piece of work that effectively wastes its talented cast...
There's nothing original about this film, but it does boast a solid anchor in Goldberg and include some pretty good acting around her.
The script, like the direction by Doug McHenry, relies too heavily for comic effect on broad comic contrivances and high-volume arguments.
It takes this stock situation and gives it moments of discovery, as well as an emotional showiness that's sometimes hard to resist.
With its universal themes, Kingdom Come offers a great deal to enjoy, from its stellar cast to its entertaining screenplay
Something is amiss when gentleness is the most memorable element of the film that desperately wants to be a rollicking gutbuster.
I absolutely LOVE this movie! Great ensemble cast; all these talented and well-known people exercising their comedic bones and bringing about great results!
