Head over Heels is a 2001 American romantic comedy film directed by Mark Waters about a woman, Amanda Pierce (Monica Potter) living in New York City who works at Metropolitan Museum of Art restoring paintings. (source:Wikipedia)

Plot; Amanda Pierce (Monica Potter), a New York paintings conservator working at The Met, has very bad judgment in men which is proven when she walks in on her boyfriend cheating on her with a supermodel. Amanda begins looking for a new apartment and finds one with four struggling models, Jade (Shalom Harlow), Roxana (Ivana Miličević), Candi (Sarah O’Hare), and Holly (Tomiko Fraser). When Amanda discovers that Jim Winston (Freddie Prinze Jr.), the guy she likes, lives in the apartment across from hers she starts spying on him to try to find his flaw. One night Amanda sees Jim kill a woman, Megan O’Brien (Tanja Reichert), and by the time the police arrive they don’t believe Amanda because she is the only witness, and the evidence is gone. Annoyed about the police’s lack of effort to find out what has really happened, Amanda and her new friends investigate on their own. When Amanda finds out about what she thinks is Jim’s involvement with Megan’s death, she confronts him. Amanda’s judgment turns out to be wrong and Jim’s (who turns out to be undercover cop, Bob Smoot, who was trying to gain Halloran’s (Jay Brazeau) trust by staging his partner Megan’s death) cover is blown. Amanda discovers that Jim is investigating Halloran, a Russian man who has been smuggling in money and who Amanda has been privately restoring a painting for. Later, Jim, Amanda and her roommates get captured but later escape when Roxana seduces their Russian guard and with the help of the models realize what Halloran was really doing, smuggling diamonds. Amanda, Jim (now Bob Smoot), and the models go to a fashion runway and take down Strukov. They are all awarded special commendations for meritorious service from the FBI. After the cops take care of things Jim asks Amanda if they can start over, but she refuses and Jim leaves. At the end Amanda and Jim (going by his real name Bob) “meet” again and the movie ends when Bob takes Amanda up to his new apartment and shows her the view, which turns out to be of Amanda and the models’ apartment. Lisa and the models are jumping around happily while Bob and Amanda laugh. They kiss and close the curtains to his apartment window.

I like this movie because it is funny, and because of the Freddie Prinze Jr.(I love him.) xD
