plot : a down-and-out girl moves in with some over-the-top models and falls in love with a goofy-but-loveable guy from across the street .
aaaaaaaaah !
then one day , she sees him knock a woman upside the head with a baseball bat .
ooooooooh !
she must then join together with her model-friends to find out whether or not this guy is really goofy-but-loveable , or a psycho killer .
aaaaaaaaah !
critique : completely idiotic .
okay , so maybe i'm being a little too nice .
this movie starts off dumb , moves into the ridiculous and eventually graduates to idiocy .
there . . . that's
more like it !
and how , you may ask ?
well , it's simple really .
four of the dumbest stereotypical models in the world ( oh my god , i just found out that the actresses playing the parts are models in real life . . . yipes ! )
join monica potter ( in a role which can only be described as an obvious cry for help ) and freddie prinze jr . ( not the actor , but the character better known as freddie prinze jr . ) , in a plot so stupid and far-fetched , that you have to wonder once more , how crap like this gets by the hollywood bigwigs .
this thing stinks to high-heaven .
it's just plain embarrassing for everyone involved .
i even felt my iq dip below its usual low as toilet humor somehow worked its way into this so-called romantic-comedy-action movie ?
ugh .
what a pile of dung .
hey , i'm actually starting to sound a little like harry knowles here , but i guess i could see where his frustration comes from time to time .
it's sad really .
a movie which actually had quite a few people in my audience laughing at its idiocy , including the over-used " folks hiding in the bathroom while someone else comes in to take a crap and fart " gag .
and how about that dumb blonde model who keeps running into things .
pure hilarity !
or maybe i'm just too jaded , too much of a critic , not relaxed enough to enjoy this fluff-piece . . . uuuhhmmm . . . naaaaah ! !
this movie sucks the big one .
it's chockfull of stupid characters delivering inane dialogue fitting snuggly into a preposterous plot .
this is the kind of movie that has one character inserting another character into a car headfirst to the floor only because . . . well ,
it's supposed to be funny , see ?
you see , that person then has their legs swinging in the other person's face as they drive and that distracts the driver , see , and well , that's kinda funny , no ?
harumph . . . yeah ,
well . . . you
get the picture !
anyhoo , freddie prinze jr . . . . nuff
said .
monica potter , a bad career move , but we might forgive you if you keep up the julia roberts bit .
the rest of the model girls . . . well ,
thanks for being there so i had something to look at , but please apologize to the entire modeling community as a whole , for making them all out to be complete imbeciles ! !
so why the three points out of ten , you may ask ?
well , it's simple really .
one point goes to the russian model girl and that cool accent ( don't ask me why , but it actually turned me on ) .
one point goes out to all of the model girls for being in the movie ( nice window decoration . . . natch ! ) .
and one last point goes out to the makers of this film , who spared us any long sorted story , and made sure to give us the opportunity of leaving the theatre after only 90 minutes of manufactured garbage , so that we could run out as fast as we can , grab the next person that we see walking down the street and warn them of the devil that is . . . freddie prinze jr . . . i
mean , head over heels .
you've been warned , good people .
ps : didja notice how i didn't even mention rear window once in my entire review ?
i didn't want to taint the memory of the classic flick by having it uttered alongside this thing , but then again , i just did mention it , but i guess it doesn't count in the ps section . . . or
does it ?
ooooh , whatever . . . i have a headache !
( i think my brain is coming back to life )
where's joblo coming from ?
