Storyline

The dumb loser Frank Muzzy invites his alcoholic friend and gravedigger Eddie to raise some money bootlegging US$ 250,000.00 in cigarettes for the powerful mobster Spider to Mexico. However, their truck catches fire and they lose the load. Frank becomes desperate to raise the amount, and hides himself with Eddie in the house of his mother. When Frank sees in the newspaper the picture of Crystal Harkness, the wife of the tycoon Harkness, Eddie confirms that she was a former strip dancer and buried with a valuable necklace. Frank forces Eddie to exhume her body, but they do not find the jewel. Frank brings Crystal's corpse to his hideout and decides to ask a ransom to Harkness getting into a deeper trouble, while Eddie falls in love for Crystal.

Wasted potential but still watchable
31 March 2012 | by (Åland Islands) – See all my reviews

Now, here's a little obscure and underrated flick. Drop Dead Sexy is a dark humor comedy starring Jason Lee and Crispin Glover (George McFly from Back To The Future) that never reaches its climax. It's like the whole movie is just one big foreplay without the actual pleasure of sex. Sure we can enjoy foreplay, and some hints of a felatio, but to go without any of those two things is a crime with a girl (story) like that. Again, it seems that macabre and black humor comedies always resort to dead people for a source of laughs, and as you probably guessed this is the case here. This isn't Bernie, but a hot chick so there's that love is in the air vibe to spice things up. Characters are relatively developed and very typical, adding more to the mediocrity of the movie. Still this should be enough to keep you entertained for an hour and a half.

Frank and Eddy are two dumba**es without money or any respect for the law. Frank being the smart one, accepts a job from a local mafia boss Spider to smuggle 250.000 $ worth of cigarettes, but after a little accident on the road the truck with them explodes. Two of them are now in quite a pickle, and again Frank thinks of a way to get some money: he decides that they go grave-robbing. Eddy being the grave digger, leads them in and after they dug up the grave with the necklace, they find out that there is no necklace and only a corpse of a beautiful young woman. As the night watchman spots them they rush out of the cemetery with the girl in the back of their truck. Stuck with a dead body and in debt with the local mobster the dynamic duo is in a seemingly desperate situation, but they will find a way out of it…
