"Over Her Dead Body" tells the story of an obnoxious and thoroughly unpleasant woman who dies in the first scene and still continues to annoy and aggravate. Unfortunately,it turns out that the film itself suffers from the same condition.
As a fledgling couple, Ashley and Henry fail to generate much on-screen heat. You would hardly notice anything "romantic" happening if the characters didn't verbally announce it. The list of tiny yet vital problems could go on...
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.
Writer/director Jeff Lowell settles for a story that takes a little too long to tell, concocted situations a little too implausible to buy and repartee that occasionally hits the dartboard but never gets close to the bull's-eye.
