      Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle Neither ditzy enough as comedy nor realistic enough as human drama to live a long life. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 19, 2004 Full Review Jack Mathews New York Daily News 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. Rated: 2/4 Oct 15, 2004 Full Review Lou Lumenick New York Post 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. Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 15, 2004 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens The ultimate eulogy here: A family's love isn't always expressed in hearts and flowers. Sometimes, nothing says "family" like dysfunction and the sting of a little rapier wit. Nov 6, 2019 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com Rated: 1/5 Feb 16, 2009 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 3/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Prasad S A light comedy which you can watch and find stupidity people do when grown people react to the loss of a parent . Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/24 Full Review Cristiana B I think "Meh" is too great a compliment for this tacky mess. "Rotten" is about right. I just didn't care about any of these annoying characters, or think anything about them was funny. My husband thought it was "pretty good" though, so we watched the whole thing - but if it had been up to me, I would have turned it off within ten minutes! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/15/22 Full Review robert p Never have I laughed so much as this dark comedy (The only darker comedy I like better is "Little Miss Sunshine"). I can not give it *5* stars because of "LMS" but I do give this movie a good recommendation it is funny as all git out! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review ROSS M Despite the critics, this one is highly amusing for about 60% of it's running time & then starts to pull its punches & run out of steam. The good portion is laceratingly funny, the bad is filler-we-have-all-seen. The lesbian sub-plot is indicative - it provides the straight man (no pun intended) for a series of solid riffs & then heads for the most predictable & safest waters imaginable. Is there anyone anywhere who did not see that denouement coming? The twins are excellent but run out of lines. The whole cast (especially Piper Laurie & even Ray Ramondo) dives in to the film with gusto & give the film a lot of it's charm but the script can't support them to the end. A disappointing failure of courage. I'd normally rate a 3 but have awarded an extra half point thanks to the critics being, well, over critical. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/27/20 Full Review steve d Entertainingly odd but fairly forgettable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member It could have been a very funny and enjoyable movie. It has great actors that did terrible acting. It seems all of the lines were forced. Zooey Deschanel (Kate Collins/character) was absolutely terrible. It was like she didn't even want to be in the movie. The humor really never flowed. Jesse Bradford (Ryan Carmichael, Boyfriend to Kate) was the best & most believable character. But poor directing and terrible editing really liked this otherwise better movie. They really missed the mark. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
