WHILE WE WERE WAITING to SEE JUST HOW EYE-GOUGINGLY UNKIND the REVIEWS of THE EYE WOULD BE, OVER HER DEAD BODY SNUCK in UNDER OUR RADAR and GRABBED RAZZIE®- WORTHY NOTICES of ITS OWN.

STARRING a GORGEOUS-to-LOOK-AT BUT IN-OVER-HER-HEAD SEX SYMBOL, HER DEAD BODY FOLLOWS the POST DEATH-by-ICE-SCULPTURE EXPLOITS of "DESPERATE HOUSEWIFE" EVA LANGORIA-PARKER, AS SHE ATTEMPTS to PREVENT HER FIANCE' from MARRYING SOMEONE ELSE AFTER SHE's DIED. THE TRAILER WAS ONLY MILDLY FUNNY, BUT the REVIEWS SAY IT's as DEAD as LANGORIA's CHARACTER.

IF YOU'RE UNAFRAID of INSULTING the DEAD, FEEL FREE to POST YOUR COMMENTS BELOW...

LANGORIA: "Yes, Hell DOES have a beauty parlor...and I've run up quite a tab there!"

This does look pretty crappy. Eva looks pretty damn hot though.

I don't think the romantic comedy crowd will ever turn out in droves to watch a fantasy, and I feel the reverse is true as well. I'm also not surprised at this film's critical reception, we are dealing with Jeff Lowell, writer of previous RAZZIE hopeful JOHN TUCKER MUST DIE. I'll admit, I found that TUCKER wasn't as obnoxious as I feared, but we're still dealing with mediocre comedy at best, and I would imagine this film's quality will hover around that same level.

I saw this one tonight. However, I've also seen it about a thousand times before. This movie was so painfully formulaic that I started worrying that people would be tripping over my dead body on the way out. The good news is that if I ever sit through this plot one more time, I'll win a set of steak knives.

However, I hasten to point out that even the dreadful 14% this movie scored at RT is way above the shut out Strange Wilderness is pitching. It is at 0%.

I liked Just Like Heaven with all its LAMENESS so maybe I will like this awful-rated film. Sometimes you can see through a movie but you nevertheless know what kind of crap it is. Just by looking at it this one looks like hot garbage, I dont have respect for it just by looking at that awful name LONGORIA-PARKER WTF!!! souds just like ROMJIM-STAMOS!! or yet WRIGHT PENN!!

The trailer did look like crap: Not even Paul Rudd could save it. And yeah, "Longoria-Parker", WTF indeed...another example of a TV star who tries to branch out into movies, but picks all the wrong movies to do it in.

I think everyone who starred in this is up for grabs for nods, but I don't think this flick will make the final cut.

Most of the laughs came in the climax(the airport scene).The rest were mostly forced.

I don't mind certain cliches,but having Eva Longoria Parker as a bitch the whole movie,and then changing like nothing...

Except for Jason Biggs and Lindsay Sloane hooking up at the end,I knew everything that was going to happen.

The biggest shock for me was when I read this was a romantic comedy.

Critic rating:**/*****
Chilean rating:4,0
U.S. rating:D
Final rating:40%

I'm pretty sure he's a lead.
