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 blowjob, 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 stereotypical, 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 dumbasses 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…
