Ghost gets a romantic-comedy redo with this strained love-triangle tale.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

Over Her Dead Body will find its best audience on airplane flights, where viewers will be unable to get up and leave without parachutes.

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.

Move over, 'One Missed Call.' You now face stiff competition for worst movie of the year from 'Over Her Dead Body.'

If it were considered unseemly to speak ill of dead films, then the only thing to recommend about Over Her Dead Body would be the lead actor's palpable indifference.

"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.

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

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...

Silly, campy and tepid - no hearts 'n' flowers here.

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.

Derivative doesn't always mean dull, and this madcap paranormal love triangle is charming on its own terms.

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.

You can't even feel sorry for Henry, because anyone blind enough to want to marry Kate is clearly delusional and deserving of any misery that comes his way.

For what is essentially a screwball comedy, Over Her Dead Body is surprisingly uninspired, a frothy concept that offers little satisfaction in the way of execution.

The grating presence of Longoria Parker will be enough to ruin the movie for many, but she's just one of many shortcomings in this romantic comedy, which seriously lacks both romance and comedy.
