Over Her Dead Body (2008)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

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


Movie Info

Devastated when his fiancée Kate is killed on their wedding day, Henry reluctantly agrees to consult a psychic named Ashley at the urging of his sister Chloe. Despite his skepticism over her psychic abilities, Henry finds himself falling hard for Ashley, and vice versa. But there is a big snag.

[An] offense of a ghost comedy.

Not a life-changing romantic comedy, but it's funny enough, has charming leads and breezes by in its quick 97 minutes.

Lyles' Movie Files

Ghost-lite romantic comedy is only so-so.

... neither funny, charming or anything else that will make it a memorable hour and a half of viewing pleasure.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

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

Guardian

The writing is intelligent, the pratfalls mostly work, and everyone is having a good time.

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.
