'Dead Body' is such a drag

The Baltimore Sun

Over Her Dead Body is a hopeless pastiche of timeworn plotlines, hackneyed dialogue and stultifying direction; to call it amateurish is a slap in the face to amateurs everywhere.

It's certainly a movie that is undeniably dead on arrival. It's not funny, it's put together with all the care and finesse of a ransom note, it features actors who seem embarrassed to be involved with the thing, and it drags for at least 94 of its 95-minute running time.

Over Her Dead Body (New Line Cinema) Starring Eva Longoria Parker, Paul Rudd, Lake Bell. Written and directed by Jeff Lowell. Rated PG-13. Time 95 minutes.
