Movie Info

Mary's life has been defined by a string of temp jobs and a half-hearted attempt to become a writer. But all that changes when she comes home to find her boyfriend dead in front of the TV set. During her misadventures in trying to get rid of his ashes - accidentally becoming the bassist in a rock band; bonding with the dog he left behind; awkward encounters with numerous ex-lovers; Mary discovers that there was much more to her couch potato boyfriend than she ever thought imaginable.


Critic Reviews for My Dead Boyfriend

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4) | Rotten (11)

  • To be fair, these actors are good at said talking, and they're not unappealing to watch, but the whole narrative seems rather pointless in the end.

  • A mixture of misplaced gallows humor, wildly over-the-top caricatures and a gimmicky use of animation.

    Nov 4, 2016 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • "My Dead Boyfriend" desperately tries to look and sound like a quirky indie hit, but that's not an achievable goal when you have an unlikable lead character indifferently rendered by a name star.

    Nov 3, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It's the type of indie film that might have played at a minor festival at the turn of the millennium, with the audience offering pity laughter for the cast and crew in attendance and the director waiting in vain for news of an acquisition.

  • Living or dead, it's well past time to break up with My Dead Boyfriend.

    Oct 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The ridiculous concept manages a few broad laughs, but the characters are consistently more obnoxious than endearing.
