[An] offense of a ghost comedy.

Rolling Stone
Top Critic

Lowell has little to say about loss and love. But there's a talking parrot, and on some days, that's enough.

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

February 1, 2008
Chicago Tribune
Top Critic

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.

The tale [falls] short on imagination.

February 1, 2008
USA Today
Top Critic

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.

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.
