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

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

Well, this could have been a lot worse, instead it's just a piece of forgettable, mediocre fluff.

A wild and wicked catfight comic romp as Eva Longoria gets booted up to heaven and returns to planet earth with hell to pay, when she fumes over sharing her man. No, not that one!

Have romantic comedies so run out of ideas that they have to cherrypick other genres for new material? Hauntings and exorcisms aren't usually the stuff of romantic comedies, but that is exactly what you get in the ridiculously flawed yet funny, Over H

What exactly is the joke here? She's a ghost who wants to stop her fiancÚ from dating a living person. So she's the bad guy, right? And what's her plan? Just keep talking loudly? What a big comic set piece that is.

There are some flat-out great moments in a largely mediocre film, which is enough to shoot it to the very top of its class - it is midwinter, after all.

...a clanking Frankenstein of a movie, stitched together from pieces plundered from the bodies of romantic comedies that went before.

The top-billed star of Over Her Dead Body dies within five minutes of her first appearance, and if the majority of the other characters in the movie suffered a similar fate, I wouldn't have complained much.

It's not the dead body you have to worry about in Over Her Dead Body. It's the dead brain cells: yours.
