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

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!

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.

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

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

This is a film that's completely happy being its silly little self. And if it produces some giggles along the way -- and it does -- it has done its job.

Just enough laughs to make it watchable, despite Longoria's insufferable performance.

For what it is -- a romantic comedy about the rivalry between a jealous ghost and a flaky psychic for the love of a veterinarian -- Over Her Dead Body is not bad.

The quirky romantic comedy works largely because of good writing, and Rudd's deadpan delivery of same. That he can do so as slapstick erupts around him makes it all the funnier.

This is no career high, but it's impossible to actively dislike Rudd.

It's one of those movies you want to dismiss but can't bring yourself to turn away from.

For all its faults, Over Her Dead Body offers at least a few sporadic laughs, which automatically makes it one of the less awful January-February releases.
