Denise has been slaving away as an obit writer for the Tribune, dying for her chance to become a reporter. One of the tribune's writers has recently died of old age, and Denise jumps at the opportunity to take over his job, tactlessly hounding her boss, ROGER, in the midst of the funeral. That night, unable to sleep, Denise goes for a late-night jog...where she stumbles upon a dead body and promptly faints from the shock. When she comes to, amidst all the police activity, Denise spots SIMON, her rival and one-time lover, performing his new reporting duties. The next day, Denise's friend and coworker, LUKE, informs her of the name of last night's victim. Shocked, Denise realizes that she saw the deceased's obituary in a newspaper last night, before the time of death. But when she tries to track down the article, it's nowhere to be found. Soon, Denise's computer displays a mysterious message: another obit. But when she tries to print she ends up with blank paper, and the message erases ... Written by Kevin Commins

Obituary a big bore
8 November 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is mainly due to such a stupid script idea and bad acting from the leading lady, played by Josie Bisset. Even her hair annoyed me. What is it with these hunks of hair over one eye these days? Is this considered sexy? Please. It looks like the actress is unkempt and sloppy. Doesn't comb her hair. Bisset's form of acting consists of constantly brushing her hair out of her face. Ever hear of hairpins or hair spray? So, watching her was quite painful for this viewer. I finally gave up on this movie after watching an hour of it. I did like Craig Olejnik as an actor. Also Grant Nickalls was worth watching as well.

It seems that most of these made for TV movies consist of women who manage to have hair dos that cover their one eye or their face. When you want to watch a film, you don't want to look at women who lack the taste of looking well groomed. I keep remembering the classics where the face was the thing when it comes to glamor. Not hair. With the exception of Veronica Lake and the peek-a-boo bang. But that was the 40s. This is the new century. Get with it.
