Critic Reviews for Head Above Water
Diaz is largely performing in a vacuum: Keitel, unbelievable for starters as a middle-aged judge, seems unsure at which pitch to play the largely physical comedy, and Sheffer, as the best friend, is fairly vanilla.
Diaz, clad mostly in a one-piece yellow swimsuit, is left floundering in the shallows of a script which relies on ludicrous human behaviour and mechanical plot twists, the latter signposted by an over-emphatic score.
One moment, ''Head Above Water'' plays like a clanking melodrama, the next like a gallows comedy of corrupt yuppie manners.
If you have to spend time with a corpse at the beach, this is better than "Weekend at Bernie's." But it's a near thing.
Debts must have been called in on this one.
Audience Reviews for Head Above Water
Not really one of the best but nice to watch. Not a bad comedy. Trying to get rid off the dead body of Billy Zane s character, some nice LOLs scenes nothing special.
This is one edge of your seat thriller...that I never knew of...Both Harvey Keitel and Cameron Diaz had 'killer' instincts in this movie well into the end...see this....
Dark comedy that is most remembered when it's played on late night cable. Other than that, it's completely forgotten. But Harvey Keitel's in it!
