The problem I had with it was you barely get to know Frigga, and then they act like her death matters a great deal in the funeral scene. But then no one seems to care outside of Loki. Odin is a little grumpy, but there is no real reflection, no real attempt to grasp the idea of losing someone you have known for hundreds, for thousands of years. Thor doesn't seem to care his mother died or his brother died. He cares more about Jane's potential date. The film doesn't seem to care as it is too busy cracking the jokes as the universe is about to go out.

And they of course follow up the funeral scene with the Stan cameo.

It is a part of the overall criticism of the writing and how lazy it is overall.
