  • I like Longoria Parker on "Desperate Housewives" and truly believe she could have a career on the big screen if she promises to never again work with writer-director Jeff Lowell, who perpetrated this offense of a ghost comedy on her and on her otherwise gifted co-stars Paul Rudd and Lake Bell. show more

  • Seriously lacks both romance and comedy. show more

  • Though the tale may fall short on imagination, the principal actors make Over Her Dead Body livelier than one would expect. show more

    I thought this would be a light hearted comedy. Since I am a comedy fan I was anxious to see it. The movie insulted my intelligence. The "assistant" role was annoying that anyone would dare think he was funny. The lady who played the psychic was beautiful - - until she was in a scene with Eva then she looked frumpy. Eva played her part as an extention of Desperate Housewives but she was good - as good as she could be with the role she had. The guy just didn't fit the part or the role. Normally I don't agree with professional critics. I think they do not relate to what the normal viewing audience likes but this time I think they were too generous. Teenagers will probably like this movie but us "older" folks need to go see something else and wait until the video and a rainy afternoon.

    Funny movie, but not as snappy and quick as the movie, "Enchanted" (I would give "Enchanted" 5 out of 5 stars)...but "Over Her Dead Body" still worthwhile and enjoyable. I liked this movie and recommend it.
