Movie Review: Over Her Dead Body

Eva Longoria Parker once again takes the role as the self-centred, fussy woman, like in Desperate Housewives! I bought this movie just because she’s in it and I can’t wait to see how it’d be like.

Well, this movie was just okay. There are a few funny bits here and there but I find the storyline a bit odd. Anyway, let me tell you briefly what it’s about. Kate (Eva Longoria Parker) and Henry (Paul Rudd) are about to get married. Kate is shown bossing people around getting ready for the big day. Then, as of her luck, a huge ‘angel’ ice sculpture falls down on her, probably killing her on the spot.

It is then one year later and it looks like Henry isn’t moving on because he probably doesn’t have the heart to go out with another woman. His sister drags him to see a psychic, Ashley (Lake Bell), to try to contact Kate and maybe talk to her. Ashley has her gay best friend, Dan (Jason Biggs), as her assistant but he’s too clumsy to be of any kind of help!

Ashley, seeing how hot Henry is, starts to fall for him and vice versa. Kate, whose soul still isn’t at rest yet, is agitated because she thinks Henry is moving on way too fast. So she tries to break the new lovebirds up even if it’s the last thing she does on Earth.

This is a story about letting go of someone you really love, even though you are already dead. True, it’s hard, but for how long can you really hold on to a person and not move on?

Getting Married At 20?

Are you ready to tie the knot that that age? What if your boyfriend or some guy who’s been in love with you for a long time and he decide to pop the question to you? Or maybe it’s the other way round, that is, the girl herself who asks it first?

You definitely need to consider a few things first before saying ‘Yes! I’ll marry you!’

Money. Yes, money is important. Can your husband-to-be support you later when you tie the knot? What if you were to have children? It’s okay if your future husband is loaded or he’s already stable and has a steady income. But if both of you are still students and there’s no income coming in, then what would you do?

Studies. If one of you is studying, can you juggle marriage and books at the same time? My friend, who’s still in university, is going to get married. I’m curious as to how it’ll be. I’m really happy for her but I’m just curious. Has anyone else done this before?

Your parents. Do they approve of your marrying at such an early age? Now we think that getting married at 20 is way too early but in the olden days, girls got married when they were as young as 16 or younger! However, in modern days, it’s considered quite unusual if you got married too early probably because we don’t want to be tied down to one person too soon. Anyway, if your parents object, then you might need to sit them down and talk with them.

Is he/she The One? This is probably the most important thing that you need to give some thought to. Marriage is for life, if you haven’t realized yet. I was genuinely shocked and basically worried when my ex suggested that we registered. I must have really hurt his feelings by acting all too shocked. Heck, I’m still a student and my family didn’t even know about him. Well, that was the past anyway.

Love…marriage…it seemed so far away when I was younger. Now, we are all grown up. A close of friend of mine is going to get married. She’s the same age as me. We were friends since we were 12. Now she’s going to get married!

We’ve really grown up.

Gonna Shoot For The Moon

How long was it huh? Since the last time when I felt like the world was going to end? All thanks to one *special* guy!'s not like I'm 100% recovered or something, I'm still in the process of healing and recovering, depression? Post-break-up trauma? Whatever it was, it still is.

My friends advised me to keep myself busy. Fine, I'll try to be busy but it's not enough to get rid of him from my mind AND also from my dreams! Even when we were still dating, I've never dreamt so much about him. And now he decides to appear in my dreams now that we've broken up. Great timing.

I'm trying to convince myself that he's way over me and has already moved on in life with the new girlfriend whom he may have already known only for 2 months now.

However, I have that stinking feeling that I'm waiting for something. What is it? A new guy to dance his way into my life? For him to call me and beg me to take him back? Before this, I keep saying to myself that something good will come out of this. Well, I'm probably waiting for that something *good* to happen. Whatever it is! And that it's better to wait for it patiently. Good things come to those who wait, you know. I'm still trying to believe it myself.

Wow, I wonder how many proverbs and sayings that I've gone through. It's a way to convince myself, that's all.
