Over Her Dead Body | 2008 | PG-13 | - 5.3.4

A man (Paul Rudd) is devastated when his fiancée (Eva Longoria Parker) is killed in a freak accident on their wedding day. Unable to let go and move on with his life, he is persuaded to seek help from a psychic (Lake Bell) who tries to communicate with his expired bride, who is now a ghost and unwilling to let go of him. The situation becomes more complicated when he begins to fall for the psychic. Also with Jason Biggs, Lindsay Sloane and Stephen Root. Directed by Jeff Lowell. [1:34]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman kiss and imply that they are going to have sex, the woman changes into a negligee and returns to the room telling the man that, "it looks better on the floor"; they kiss and lie on the bed, they roll back and forth kissing, the woman tells the man to "talk dirty" to her and he does (a gardener outside hears them).
 A woman in a shower at a fitness center runs out of the shower room (she covers her breasts with her arm and has a towel wrapped around her waist) and onto the exercise floor where many men are exercising and they stop and stare. A woman changes clothes in a fitting room with a man seated nearby; the curtain is open and we see her in a bra -- cleavage and her bare abdomen are visible and then we briefly glimpse her panties while she pulls on a skirt.
 We see many women throughout the movie wearing low-cut tops that reveal cleavage. We see a woman showering and her bare back is exposed. A woman wears a top that reveals part of her bare back. A man takes off his shirt and stands bare-chested for a while. A woman wears a sleep shirt and her bare legs are seen.
 A man and a woman kiss and another man looks on and appears jealous. A man and a woman kiss after they have just met. A man and a woman kiss. A man and a woman kiss after a wedding. A man and a woman kiss and she caresses his face. A woman kisses a man and tells him that he is not gay. A man tries to kiss a woman, and she dodges him. A woman kisses a man on the cheek.
 A woman talks about having taken bubble baths with her gay friend. A woman tells a ghost that the ghost's fiancé is a "great kisser." A woman describes another woman as having "huge natural breasts" and that she "likes to perform oral sex" on a man who accepts a date with her. A ghost tells a woman "we saw what she did in the shower." A woman holds an animal tongue depressor and says, "They're so big." A woman asks a man (who we are told is gay) if the skirt she is trying on makes her buttocks look big, and stands very close to his face.
 We see an ice sculpture of a woman and it is not clear if she is dressed.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man lights a gas stove, the flame sets his sleeve on fire, and he dunks his arm in a pot of boiling water, and he is screaming and flailing throughout the ordeal.
 A woman runs behind a moving truck, the truck stops short and the large ice sculpture that is loaded in the back tips over and crushes the woman (we hear the crash and she wakes up in a white room).
 A priest performs an exorcism and we see a ghost break into small particles and eventually disappear entirely. A ghost levitates off a chair and speaks in many voices while threatening a woman. A woman screams when she sees a woman fall out a window (she's a ghost). A ghost kicks another ghost in the shin and he complains that it hurt.
 A woman falls over a chair and breaks her telephone because she is frightened when the phone rings.
 A woman lights a cherries jubilee after adding too much alcohol and a large flame shoots into the sky (we see her singed face). A woman cuts her finger while chopping food (no blood). A woman wakes up in a white room and is greeted by another woman who tells her, rather abruptly, that she is dead. A ghost admits to dying in a drunk driving accident. People are confused when a woman seems to be arguing with someone who is not there (the ghost is only visible to her). A ghost talks about wanting to kill a living woman. A woman makes a remark about a gay man's "attitude toward straight men." A man makes fun of people who own cats. A veterinarian makes fun of an overweight dog. A woman tells another woman that she's "getting hippy."
 Two men try to pick up an overweight dog, they fall down several times, they drop the dog, it yelps and another man eventually tries to help.
 A woman spurts mustard on her dress, and then spills the entire container on herself.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
