Over Her Dead Body (2008)
Sunday 1st June 2008
Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria Parker takes a break from Wisteria Lane to star in the hilarious Over Her Dead Body. Released by Entertainment In Video on rental DVD on 26th May and retail on 9th June 2008, this devilishly funny romantic comedy is all about holding onto the one you love...even when you're six feet under.
Written and directed by Jeff Lowell (writer of John Tucker Must Die), this £3.3 million UK box office smash also stars Paul Rudd (Knocked Up, Night at the Museum, The 40 Year Old Virgin, TV's Friends), Lake Bell (TV's Boston Legal) and Jason Biggs (American Pie series).
Kate (Longoria) is a beautiful yet exceedingly demanding and controlling woman who is about to be married to an easy-going vet named Henry (Rudd). But then on her wedding day tragedy strikes as Kate is accidentally killed by a falling ice sculpture.
A year later, with Henry unable to move on with life, his sister Chloe (Lindsay Sloane) convinces him that what he needs is permission from Kate's spirit to start life anew. At Chloe's urging, but remaining sceptical, he agrees to meet Ashley (Bell), a psychic who also runs a catering company with her best friend, Dan (Biggs).
The initial reading doesn't work but Chloe, refusing to be beaten, steals Kate's diary and then convinces her brother to give the psychic a second chance. Ashley uses the diary's information to pretend to communicate with Kate's ghost as a favour to Chloe to try and help Henry.
Ashley slowly begins to fall for Henry - and vice versa - but she gets more than she bargained for when Kate actually does reveal herself as a disgruntled and very jealous ghost - and Ashley is the only person who can see and talk to her!
Kate turns Ashley's life into a living hell by using her ghostly powers to torment her. But Ashley ultimately decides to match Kate at her own game in order to get what she truly wants ... Henry.
