Over Her Dead Body (2008)



Critic Consensus: With few laughs and little romantic chemistry, Over Her Dead Body lacks the ingredients of a successful romantic comedy.

Critic Reviews for Over Her Dead Body

All Critics (109) | Top Critics (44)

The film -- pinched from Ghost in every relevant particular -- is pretty moderate.

October 18, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

[An] offense of a ghost comedy.

February 22, 2008 | Rating: 1/4

A desperately unfunny farce that doesn't need an audience so much as an exorcist.

Lowell has little to say about loss and love. But there's a talking parrot, and on some days, that's enough.

February 3, 2008 | Rating: B | Full Review…

You may remember Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit. This is Bleh Spirit.

February 1, 2008 | Rating: 2/4

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.

this movie is obvious and predictable that leaves nothing to the imagination, although the concept is different and it has potential but the script is its failure and is funny in places but not really rememberable or worth the watch for a second time.
