Over Her Dead Body (2008) PG13 - 3 Stars

Cute is the word for this movie so I'm afraid I'm going to have to label this one a chick flick. It's a cute story line and I work with Veterinaries all day so I appreciated the star being one. While it's not the funniest movie I've seen, the lighting of the cherry's jubilee and the naked run through the gym, made my smile. Kate can be such a bitch, you want to root for Henry and Ashley.

Henry (Paul Rudd) and Kate (Eva Longoria Parker) are in the middle of the most special days of their lives until the ice sculpture arrives. Kate wants everything to be perfect and complains her ice angel doesn't have any wings. While the driver is backing up to take it away, she steps in back of the truck to stop the truck from hitting the flowers. Out pops one frozen angel, crushing Kate to death. Now that should make one sad however, we haven't seen the last of Kate yet.

Henry's sister Chloe (Lindsay Sloane) suggests Henry enlist one of her friends Ashely's (Lake Bell) a psychic / caterer, to see if she can channel his dead wife and learn to move on. Chloe even helps Ashely get to know Kate better by giving her Kate's diary to read. But what no one thought would happen was Henry falling for Ashley. The two begin dating and start to fall for each other until Kate's ghost shows up demanding Ashley leave her husband alone. Kate vows to make Ashley's life miserable if she continues to see Henry. Can a fresh true love win out over the past?
