Death Becomes Her

Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn take makeovers to the extreme as the pair play two rivals who drink a magic potion from a beautiful enchantress that promises eternal youth.

However, after they kill each other in their battle for the man they love, the potion revives them as the undead; and they are forced to maintain their deteriorating bodies forever.

A gruesomely macabre slapstick delight which shows that maybe just cutting down on portion sizes after Christmas might be better than some of the more extreme options…
