  • Summary: A wickedly irreverent comedy, Eulogy is ultimately a heartwarming portrait of a houseful of misfits celebrating the strangest and most enduring bond of all: family. (Lions Gate Films)

  1. Character eccentricities and off-kilter group dynamics play out with a comic vengeance.
  2. Reviewed by: Clint Morris

    It's more about watching an ensemble cast try to one-up one another's performance than anything else – and for what it is, it works.
  3. In the expanding genre of quirky comedies, first-time writer-director Michael Clancy's messy, fitfully funny Eulogy is among the quirkiest.
  4. 38
    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.
  5. Feels like a quirky sitcom -- "Arrested Development" without the development.
  6. The screenplay is closer in tone to an uneasy mixture of post-"Seinfeld" bile and unfocused Altmanesque satirical misanthropy. Partly because the story's structure is so haphazard, most of the jokes land with a thud.
  7. The cast itself is weirdly overqualified.
