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
The kindest context in which to put Over Her Dead Body, which was written and directed by Jeff Lowell, is that of a training film, a public display of people trying to master their craft. The best way to see it is not at all. show more
What ensues may be predictable, but the slapstick performances of Rudd and Bell are anything but. They court, they spark, and a few times they catch comic fire. 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.
stupid writing awkward performers hold out for better scripts EVA burn the dvd
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.
