Over Her Dead Body ★½ 2008 (PG-13)

Henry (Rudd) and Kate (Longoria Parker) are about to tie the knot at their perfectly orchestrated wedding when a freak ice sculpture accident leads to the beeotchy bridezilla's untimely demise. A year later, the still-mourning Henry is encouraged by his sister Chloe (Sloane) to see her psychic friend Ashley (Bell) to help him get over his grief. Of course sparks fly, but ghostly Kate shows up to put the kibosh on Henry's new romance. Bell's charming and Rudd's likable in a premise that's been done to death, but the inexplicably top-billed Longoria Parker grates in every scene she stomps through. 95m/C DVD . US Eva Longoria, Paul Rudd, Lake Bell, Jason Biggs, Lindsay Sloane, Stephen (Steve) Root, William Morgan Sheppard; D: Jeff Lowell; W: Jeff Lowell; C: John Bailey; M: David Kitay.
