Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A spirited ensemble cast keeps things cooking in Eulogy, a black comedy about a gathering of the dysfunctional Collins family following the death of its prickly patriarch (Rip Torn). Zooey Deschanel plays granddaughter Kate, struggling to fulfill the old man's last wish that she write his eulogy. Meanwhile, her dad (Hank Azaria), a has-been actor, smokes pot in the dark and referees battles between his seamy brother Skip (Ray Romano), lesbian sister Lucy (Kelly Preston) and her lover Judy (Famke Janssen), caustic sibling Alice (Debra Winger), and suicidal mother Charlotte (Piper Laurie). Confused about her loyalties, poor Kate alternately runs to and from best friend Ryan (Jesse Bradford), who wants to become her lover, while Alice--super-critical of Lucy's sexuality--fails to keep secret her own fling with a nurse (Glenne Headly). Eulogy never quite reaches full boil, but there are many funny moments, and Deschanel, Romano, and Preston are particularly watchable. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

One dead patriarch, one deliciously dysfunctional family, and one wickedly funny irreverent comedy! When three generations of a deliciously dysfunctional family gather to bury the family patriarch, the beloved granddaughter of the deceased is given the task of delivering the eulogy. In the days leading up to the funeral, family secrets are revealed, old grudges resurface and the household erupts with renewed vigor. Eulogy is ultimately a heartwarming portrait of a houseful of misfits celebrating the strangest and most enduring bond of all.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching EULOGY, a dark comedy about a family who is reunited when the male patriarch of the family passes away. To be honest, when I saw the cast and the well-trodden plot description, I was not expecting anything stellar. But the film exceeded my expectations and manages to find some breathing room and originality in its short 91 minutes. The plot of EULOGY, as every reviewer has described, is not complex. Director Michael Clancy manages to pull you into the dysfunctional lives of these characters and let you be a fly on the wall to their hilarious and ridiculous fights.

One interesting aspect of the film is its treatment of death. You don't always expect to have any serious message coming from a comedy, but EULOGY has one. While everyone has come to this funeral on the pretense of mourning their father, the occasion becomes a time for them all to mourn their own lives and failures. It is a natural message enough: obviously, a death in the family makes one painfully aware of one's own mortality. However, there is something added in this film. No one seems to be truly sorry to see the old man go, except the granddaughter who seems to have a distorted view of him. Perhaps, the fact that they have all gathered to "honor" the death of a man they did not openly love forces them to realize the lack of love and connection they have in their own lives. Will we be mourned at the end of our lives?

Now, I am not trying to sift EULOGY for some deep meaning or message. But hidden behind all of the comedy and the hilarious (and absurd) dialogue, there is some real emotion to be had in these scenes. Having not expected any, I was surprised and pleased by the end result.

5.0 out of 5 stars review of eulogy February 16, 2005
Format:DVD
Newcomer Michael Clancy makes his debut as writer-director with one of the darkest, and funniest, comedies of the year, "Eulogy." The premise is simple - three generations come together for the funeral of the family patriarch. Grandpa has just passed and the clan gathers at Grandma's house to prepare for the ceremonious occasion and, of course, to write the eulogy. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be much of a positive nature to be said about Gramps; actually, there doesn't seem to be too much to be said of a positive nature about anyone in the family. Just ask them! And it's this delectable portrayal of multi-generational dysfunctional bickering, secrets, backstabbing, finger-pointing and one-upsmanship that makes this film work. (Did Clancy visit my family recently? I wonder.)

Eldest son, Skip Collins is anything but lovable. With lawyer with a dour face and personality to match, if he ever smiled his face would crack. And making his family even more blessed, he has two obnoxious twin sons that give new meaning to the term "hell on wheels." Daniel is a wannabe actor whose biggest claim to fame is one peanut butter commercial he did as a child. Seems now the only work he can grab is as a wannabe porn star. Daughter Lucy brings the shock factor to the table when she arrives with her lesbian lover (and provides even more fuel for the comic fodder) while eldest daughter, control freak Alice does her usual best at trying to run the show and all the while wishing she was "anywhere here." And let's not forget Grandma who herself has a bit of a suicidal streak. Rounding out the brood are the various spouses and grandchildren, especially Katie, who was the apple of her grandfather's eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Star Funny May 28, 2004
I haven't laughed this hard since "Blazing Saddles". Truly a unique, and very funny movie. Whoever you are, you owe it to yourself to go see this flick, once twice, three times and every once in awhile for life. It is destined to be a classic. One word of caution, don't bring the kids unless they are old enough to vote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dad's dead and the family decides if it cares April 28, 2005
Format:DVD
The family's patriarch dies suddenly, and the splintered family hesitantly regroups to mourn the loss. With old issues and new lives firmly intact, they all attempt to put up with each other and discover their true feelings about their choices, each other and their father - played typically well, though sparingly, by Rip Torn. The cast is excellent, with always funny Hank Azaria playing a one-hit-wonder child star who can only get parts in porn movies, as the guy reacting to the others having sex. Kelly Preston plays the angry lesbian sister scorned by the other sister, played by Debra Winger. These two do a great job of hating each other and have maybe the best girl fight I've seen in a movie. Everyone else in the cast turn in good performances, including Piper Laurie as the hilariously suicidal mother, but Ray Romano surprised the hell out of me with an excellent performance that just may have shined the brightest. I haven't been a Romano fan until now.

The family relations are convoluted, the performances excellent, the writing hilarious and the ending truly surprising. Don't miss this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could Not stop Laughing September 18, 2004
This is the most hilarious movie since "Blazing Saddles." I laughed until my sides hurt. I was never a fan of Ray Ramano until I saw this movie. What ever you do, don't leave the theater until the final scene!
