Over Her Dead Body
A young psychic named Ashley (Lake Bell) is forced to tell a small lie out of sympathy for her bereaved client, Henry (Paul Rudd), when she fails to make contact with his dead fiancée, Kate (Eva Longoria) -- a restless spirit who was tragically killed on her wedding day.

Over Her Dead BodyClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this romantic comedy stars Eva Longoria Parker, who's popular (and familiar to teens) not just for her starring role in Desperate Housewives but also for her tabloid-followed celebrity marriage to NBA player Tony Parker. There's not really any gratuitous content in the film: The language is standard for the PG-13 rating ("bitch," "s--t," etc.), there's no violence or overt product tie-ins, and the one (aborted) love scene (which shows a man and a lingerie-clad woman fooling around in bed) is more humorous than sexy.
- Sexual Content
- Henry and Kate kiss and hug on their wedding day. Ashley and Henry kiss and fool around in bed (she's wearing lingerie). Henry's sister describes his potential date as a woman with "huge breasts" who "loves oral sex."
- Kate is crushed by an ice sculpture, but viewers don't see it happen. In a funny but slightly creepy scene, Kate levitates and talks in a loud voice while trying to scare Ashley.
- Language includes "s--t," "bitch," "ass," "piss," "dick," etc.
- Social Behavior
- Ashley agrees to scam Henry about communicating with his dead fiancée. Kate uses her time as a ghost trying to sabotage a potential relationship between Henry and Ashley.
- Nothing overt: a Uniden cordless phone and a couple of recognizable cars (no visible logos).
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- A character tells a guy she's interested in that if he likes her, "just wait until I'm drunk." Adults drink beer, wine at dinner.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
