Or It’s a Wonderful Afterlife. After her suicide, cantankerous Veronica (Kristine Nielsen) meets a Hindu spirit guide (Mahira Kakkar) who calls in Jesus and Gandalf — yes, that Gandalf — to help cleanse Veronica’s ”brown tweed” aura.

The actors sometimes slip into SNL-style caricature, but Nielsen’s nuanced performance holds Miss Witherspoon together, as she nimbly (and hilariously) navigates Veronica’s reincarnations, including a jabbering baby and a carefree canine.
