Description

In this wacky family comedy, the Collins patriarch has died, leaving behind a video will and an assorted bunch of nutcases, which makes strait-laced college student Kate Collins think she was born into the wrong family. Her father is a former child actor now making pornos. Her aunt Lucy is finally going to marry her long-time companion, Judy, which titillates brother Skip, the father of annoying twins who like the way their aunt Kate is developing. The obnoxious Alice Collins annoys everyone with her insistence on pushing everyone's button, resulting in a hysterical fight at the dinner table with Lucy. And Grandma Collins hangs out in the background, hiding her own secrets and doing a bit of master manipulation herself. Meanwhile, Kate has been given the awesome task of delivering her grandfather's eulogy; as she talks to her family to find out more about him, she learns more than she ever wanted to know, digging up secrets and coming to understand her relatives in ways she never thought possible.

Review

"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
