Just how far will some guys go to pay off a debt? Frank (Jason Lee) and Eddie (Crispin Glover) are a pair of inept would-be wise guys trying to scare up enough money to get out of the small Texas town they call home. They think their ship may have come in when Spider (Pruitt Taylor Vince), a local crime boss, offers them a big payday to drive a truck full of bootlegged cigarettes into Mexico. Frank and Eddie jump at the chance, but soon discover they're been made patsies in a scam when the truck turns out to have been booby-trapped, and by the end of the day they owe Spider a quarter-million dollars. Desperate to raise the cash, Eddie, a part-time gravedigger, hears that an exotic dancer with a rich sugar daddy has recently died, and was buried wearing a valuable diamond necklace. Frank and Eddie then hatch an elaborate scheme to exhume the stripper, swipe the necklace, and hold her remains for ransom. Drop Dead Sexy was the first directorial credit for writer and producer Michael Philip. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

I also have to say that Glover and Lee make the movie watchable, but it's not a very good movie. The old corpse comedy bit went out with Weekend at Berney's 3 and "Drop Dead Sexy" takes it in a much darker direction. I'm usually big on dark comedies, but this one left much to be desired. Some of the dialogue that Lee and Glover have is funny, and when the movie's story is not tripping over itself it goes along pretty well. Not a bad rental really, but don't expect a great gem.
