In this House of Style/Rear Window mishmash, unlucky-in-love Monica Potter is just dying to meet a nice guy. Along comes suave, secretive Freddie Prinze Jr., but when Potter and her self-important supermodel roommates witness some questionable events in his Manhattan flat, it appears that she may get her wish--literally. The highlight here is the model behavior of the roomies--played by real-life catwalk cuties like Shalom Harlow and Ivana Milicevic--as they shamelessly poke fun at everything from shoe fetishes to plastic surgery.
Unfortunately, the film relies heavily on overused comic devices like a leg-humping dog, bowel movements and cross-dressing fat guys for the rest of the (non)laughs. And it's hard to care about the love-you-so-bad-it-hurts relationship between a flat Prinze and Potter (whose best moments are a sad attempt to be a blond Julia Roberts).The skinny: If you need more substance than a supermodel can supply, head over to another flick.
