Over Her Dead Body (2008)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Ghost Bogged

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Eva Longoria Parker is the gimmick, rather than the draw, of this rom-com, written and directed by TV veteran Jeff Lowell. On her wedding day, Kate (Parker), lacquered and orange with makeup, suntan and hairspray, dies accidentally. A year later, her ex-fiancé (Paul Rudd) reluctantly visits a redheaded psychic (Lake Bell) and becomes attracted to her. But Kate, unaware of her proper afterlife duties, attempts to drive the new couple apart. The movie's visuals and ghost jokes are a waste of time, but the delightfully kooky Bell and the wry Rudd occasionally strike spontaneous sparks. Like 27 Dresses however, the formula eventually bludgeons the life out. Jason Biggs is a mistake as Ashley's best friend, but Stephen Root, as another angel, is often amusing. Over Her Dead Body
