Silly, but Very Funny Black Comedy, 22 January 2008
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The dumb loser Frank Muzzy (Jason Lee) invites his alcoholic friend and gravedigger Eddie (Crispin Glover) to raise some money bootlegging US$ 250,000.00 in cigarettes for the powerful mobster Spider (Pruitt Taylor Vince) 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 (Melissa Keller), the wife of the tycoon Harkness (Xander Berkeley), 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.

"Drop Dead Sexy" is a silly, but very funny black comedy. The situation with a dead body made me recall "Weekend at Bernie's", but the jokes with the sexy Melissa Keller are different, with eroticism and even necrophilia. Crispin Glover is responsible for the best and funniest moments in this entertaining movie. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Sexy de Morrer" ("Sexy to Die")
