Despite his skepticism over her psychic abilities, Henry finds himself falling hard for Ashley, and vice versa. But there is a big snag.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[An] offense of a ghost comedy."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The tale [falls] short on imagination."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Not a life-changing romantic comedy, but it's funny enough, has charming leads and breezes by in its quick 97 minutes."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"The film -- pinched from Ghost in every relevant particular -- is pretty moderate."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"sweet jesus"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"You may remember Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit. This is Bleh Spirit."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Writer/director Jeff Lowell settles for a story that takes a little too long to tell, concocted situations a little too implausible to buy and repartee that occasionally hits the dartboard but never gets close to the bull's-eye."
‑ Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
"Ghost-lite romantic comedy is only so-so."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"The writing is intelligent, the pratfalls mostly work, and everyone is having a good time."
‑ Eric Lurio, Entertainment Insiders
"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!"
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"The kindest context in which to put Over Her Dead Body, which was written and directed by Jeff Lowell, is that of a training film, a public display of people trying to master their craft. The best way to see it is not at all."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"The worst night at the movies in this young year."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"... neither funny, charming or anything else that will make it a memorable hour and a half of viewing pleasure."
‑ JimmyO, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"Well, this could have been a lot worse, instead it's just a piece of forgettable, mediocre fluff."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Have romantic comedies so run out of ideas that they have to cherrypick other genres for new material? Hauntings and exorcisms aren't usually the stuff of romantic comedies, but that is exactly what you get in the ridiculously flawed yet funny, Over H"
‑ Brandon Fibbs, Colorado Springs Gazette
