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.
I agree that the funeral scene lost some of its weight because we never really got to know Frigga. It was the same awful formula The Walking Dead has used so many times--build up a character and give them something to do two minutes before they die. It's not enough to make anyone care.

I also found Thor's lack of reaction after to be strange.

On the flip side, the funeral scene was outstanding. It looked fantastic.
