    No, Funeral Kings isn't quite dead on arrival -- but it's not too far from needing life support.

    The easygoing charm of Funeral Kings and its impulse toward honesty over overstatement robs the film of true dramatic tension, and a number of story lines - involving drugs, rivalry, love interests - are left somewhat unresolved.

    But the McManuses' skill with character detail does hold promise for future efforts. The boys in the film are on the verge of maturity; while there appears to be very little grace in their interactions with their church, they are just beginning to find some within their own characters. Perhaps that's appropriate for two directors who seem on the threshold of an artistic maturity hinted at by this first effort.

    A raggedy but refreshing yarn about the near-terminal condition known as male adolescence.

    14 year olds that curse during a course of a week's activities of unusual events. Other than that, I can't say much more about this movie. A lot like other "coming of age" movies, which I usually can enjoy. This one didn't seem to have much of a continuing storyline or an apex or clamatic ending. I liked the premise of the boys being altar boys but that part of the movie quickly is extinct and meandering. Good for a single view, if your not expecting much more than a few chuckles.
