About the Movie

Writer/director Michael Clancy makes his feature film debut with the black comedy Eulogy. Zooey Deschanel plays Kate Collins, an unhappy college student who is made even more unhappy when her grandfather (Rip Torn) dies. Even though the entire family hates each other, they reunite at the home of Grandma Collins (Piper Laurie). Among other family members, Kate observes a war between her washed-up actor dad, Daniel (Hank Azaria); her lesbian Aunt Lucy (Kelly Preston); her wound-up Uncle Skip (Ray Romano); and her strict Aunt Alice (Debra Winger). Tensions escalate and family secrets are ultimately revealed. Kate is also inundated with the eulogy-writing duties, as she's the only one capable of such a task. Meanwhile, she reunites with old flame Ryan Carmichael (Jesse Bradford). Eulogy premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The sort of mordant ensemble comedy that Robert Altman pulled off with A Wedding appears to have been a prototype for this flat, funereal farce. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: If Eulogy were a sitcom pilot, it would be dead on arrival. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: All this off-the-wall detachment from reality might be OK if the characters didn't also feel detached from one another. – Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times, Sep 20, 2007

Rotten: Do you ever long to recapture that childhood feeling of being trapped in a car with your family three hours after the air conditioner's conked out on a sweltering summer day? – Joshua Land, Village Voice, Oct 19, 2004

Quite funny and quite dark

I saw this movie at Sundance a couple of years ago. It was very polished for a Sundance movie. The story is quirky and amusing, and the acting is fun. Definitely an enjoyable film.

one of my favorites

This movie has to be one of my favorite movies ever! I highly suggest it for anyone that's grown up with a disfunctional family.

A good all around movie

Was a lot more funny than I would have thought. My mom brags about it to everyone. Should entertain about any crowd.
