Head Over Heels

Through a rear window in her Manhattan apartment, art restorer Monica Potter spies on neighbor Freddie Prinze Jr., who literally makes her weak in the knees—pratfalls are a big part of this comedy. With the help of her roommates, four fashion models, Potter keeps an eye on Prinze, hoping to learn everything she'll need to know about him before an upcoming date. She's worried about being two-timed or dumped again, but this time it seems she may have fallen for a man whose crimes are punishable by law. Though more of the abundant sight gags and slips of the tongue originate in bathrooms and bedrooms than are actually set there, the best jokes are on the models and the men who pursue them, and Shalom Harlow, Ivana Milicevic, Sarah O'Hare, and Tomiko Fraser—the real models who play Potter's roommates—are very good sports. Mark Waters (The House of Yes) directed a screenplay by Ron Burch and David Kidd; with China Chow. 91 min.
