News & Interviews for Head over Heels
Critic Reviews for Head over Heels
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.
Head Over Heels may bear some superficial resemblance to a movie, but don't be fooled -- it's really just a marketing strategy, a loose assemblage of components each pitched to a particular demographic.
[Teens] deserve decent movies, but instead they get glop like Head Over Heels. There ought to be a law.
Kerplunkingly unfunny and -- despite Potter's Julia Roberts-ish smile and ditz shtick -- charmless.
All that's lacking is anything remotely resembling wit or style.
Audience Reviews for Head over Heels
Monica Potter as a single girl and her four beautiful models as roomies are really hilarious by solving the mystery of the man of single girl's dreams who committing a cold-blooded crime after she was spying on him.
Kinda cute movie.
It's an average romantic comedy movie and also a farce and a screwball comedy. Monica Potter and Freddie Prinze Jr. had good on-screen chemistry. But, unfortunately for Freddie Prinze Jr., while he was good, it was the females, in this movie that stole the show. Monica Potter is wonderful, the models are goofy yet so likable. The plot is okay but takes a long time to develop. This movie has a great ending.
