Consensus: With few laughs and little romantic chemistry, Over Her Dead Body lacks the ingredients of a successful romantic comedy.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

[An] offense of a ghost comedy.

Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal

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.

Not a life-changing romantic comedy, but it's funny enough, has charming leads and breezes by in its quick 97 minutes.

You may remember Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit. This is Bleh Spirit.

Bruce Demara
Toronto Star

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.

... neither funny, charming or anything else that will make it a memorable hour and a half of viewing pleasure.
