Head Over Heels ★½ 2001 (PG-13)

New York art restorer Amanda (Potter) has sworn off men after a bad breakup, but finds herself back in the game when she meets her dashing and mysterious neighbor, Jim (Prinze). Having conveniently taken up residence in an apartment that offers a perfect view of the one occupied by Jim, her attraction grows as she and her supermodel roommates follow the young man's every move. Works well during its romantic comedy stretches, but loses points for its reliance on an ill-conceived plot point revolving around a possible murder, and for lowering itself to much crude, scatological hu mor. 86m/C VHS, DVD .
