Storyline

Amanda Pierce is from Iowa and works as a restorer of Renaissance paintings for the New York Metropolitan Museum. She has just finished another frustrating relationship, when she found her boy-friend with a model on her bed. She decides to move and share a flat with four stupid but nice super-models. She meets Jim Winston, who lives in front of her window. She falls in love with him. One day, she sees Jim killing a woman - Megan O'Brien - through her window and Amanda and her four roommates decide to investigate what really happened. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Jim Winston has a chance to display his throwing knife skills early in the film, only to apparently miss what he is aiming at. Later on, it is revealed he actually hit a fly dead center, his true target. This sequence is taken nearly verbatim from _Guo chan Ling Ling Qi (1994)_. See more »

Goofs

When Amanda moves into the apartment, Jade, Roxanna, Holly and Candi run up to her to convince her to lend Jade her top. All four models are topless, but by the time that they get to the front door, they all have their tops on, and their new tops are different from the ones they were trying on before. See more »

Incredibly funny if not taken too seriously
11 August 2001 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

I'll admit it: it's utterly embarrassing to watch this movie with another human being. I was embarrassed when I laughed uncontrollably at things numerous reviews had told me were idiotic humor. Well, this movie is idiotic. It's also adorable romantic comedy, with a funny and somewhat original premise . . . at least, it's cobbled together from original premises, like the "Rear Window" setup where Amanda thinks she witnesses her obsession across the street, Jim, murdering someone. Freddie Prinze Jr is completely irresistible, and Monica Potter's somewhat one-note nice-girl cuteness is made palatable by the insanity of her four supermodel roommates and her practical lesbian friend. Watch this, laugh hard and don't be embarrassed, because this movie, even at its most poorly scripted moments, is earnestly trying to make you laugh, unlike most of today's prefab romantic comedies, whose earnestness is sheer manipulation. Plus, only a small percentage of those have Freddie in them.
