Eva Longoria Parker (TV’s Desperate Housewives) stars in this devilishly funny romantic comedy about holding onto the ones you love…even after you’re gone. When Kate (Longoria Parker) is killed by an ice sculpture on her wedding day, her fiancÃ© Henry (Paul Rudd, Knocked Up) gives up on romance until he falls for the beautiful psychic (Lake Bell, TV’s Boston Legal) who’s supposed to be helping him move on. But Kate’s not having it, and she’s going to do whatever it takes to send their budding relationship six-feet-under.
“I’m getting the feeling that she wants you to be happy again.”
“Yeah I’m getting that feeling too.”
“You are sooooo dead!”
Jeff Lowell, writer of “John Tucker Must Die” is back with this fun romantic comedy with a little twist of death sprinkled into the mix.
The thought of losing a loved one is miserable and difficult just to imagine. The grieving period can take months, even years. Most find it difficult to move on to love again. Imagine how much harder it would be to fall in love again, with your last girlfriend’s ghost stalking your every move. Kate (Longoria) died in a tragic accident on her wedding day. She died far too young and feels as though she was robbed of her fairy tale. Henry (Rudd) gets swindled into seeing a psychic by his loving sister. He didn’t plan on the psychic being a beautiful woman that would try and steal his heart. This isn’t good news to Kate who can still watch every miserable move her boyfriend makes. Chaos and many comedic situations ensue, as she haunts Henry’s new love interest. She’s not planning on giving up easy, since she has nothing else to lose. The psychic (Lake Bell) started the business relationship with Henry to help him move on, she just didn’t realize who it might be with. This film was a very cute tale of love, love lost, and what love does to you. It’s one of the more humorous romantic comedies I have seen in the last few months. It’s definitely worth checking out.
