Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"I don't want to become one of the living dead in Beverly Hills"
- Ernest (Bruce Willis)
Despite an array of impressive special effects, including a particularly inventive twist on the famous head-swivelling scene in The Exorcist, Death Becomes Her dies its own slow and painful death. Full Review
An elaborate piece of work with more than a little on its nasty mind, "Death" finally falls flatter than many a less ambitious film, proof once again that just because an idea is audacious doesn't necessarily mean it's good. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
This new horror-comedy has to be one of the most heartless mainstream pictures ever made. Full Review
This pitch-dark comedy may be seen as a biting satire on the tendency to fetishize personal appearance and youthfulness. But its inventiveness quickly wears thin, and the filmmakers show an unhealthy fascination with the spectacle of mutilated women. Full Review
Christian Science Monitor
...DEATH BECOMES HER boasts stars, special effects and a timely topic that are to die for...
Every scene that Streep and Hawn play together has a bold spark indicative of the symbiosis between females with the same goals and ambitions. Full Review
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Insistently grotesque, relentlessly misanthropic and spectacularly tasteless, ''Death Becomes Her'' isn't a film designed to win the hearts of the mass moviegoing public. But it is diabolically inventive and very, very funny. Full Review
An overweight woman loses her alcoholic plastic surgeon boyfriend to an aging star and immediately doubles her weight. An enchantress puts a spell on the women that makes them immortal -- no matter how dead they get.
Two women, one an author of beauty books and the other a vain actress, constantly compete with each other over which is the more attractive. So they both can't resist when presented with a magical elixir that promises eternal youth, life and loveliness. They discover, to their dismay, that the fiendish potion has some unexpectedly devastating -- and darkly funny -- effects.
